Projection From My Therapist, Instead Of Empathy

I always work out issues, when I know I’m seeing red flags, issues that don’t make sense, seem confusing.

It has become very clear my therapist has a deep personal issue with being called names, so she projects that issue onto her clients, even when totally inappropriate.

It explains it all……. the constant direct and passive aggressive ways I have been shamed for calling e.g. paedophiles – paedophiles, and narcissists – narcissists.

I can call toxic abusers anything I want. And I’ve had that clarified by other therapists.

Now I know it was ‘her’ personal issue about being called names – projected onto me about an entirely different scenario – because my abusers are absolutely toxic and heinous.

Two entirely different situations – that required empathy to put own feelings aside, and hold the safe space for the victim of terrible heinous abuse – who has suffered greatly at the hands of heinous people – and call them anything I want. Which IS very appropriate.

I could raise this with her, but it will be denied and I am so over arguing with her. So, I won’t. It’s easier to just go along with some people’s issues, when you know there is not going to be an appropriate outcome. Continue reading

Why People React Badly To My Empathy ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

Validation of my intelligence is good …. but it doesn’t reduce the pain, or the aloneness.

The last couple of counselling sessions, have resulted in a lot of validation. It was stated I am far more able to clearly see my trauma history and understand toxic/unhealthy people and their motivations and issues, than at any point in my life. I am far more able to speak up about all I know, understand and express the depth of that understanding.

This has all been validated. Along with being told that I am a very intelligent woman, with a capacity to think things deeply and rationally. To a much deeper level than average. And what people cannot understand – they will reject. So rejection features a lot in my life. It’s always the default for people who don’t understand something, to reject it. Few people ‘get me’. That’s the reality I am enduring.

Also validated, was my understanding of victim shaming, victim blaming, shame shifting in all it’s many forms. Plus, why it happens, the motivations for it, and why it is so wrong. I understand people’s motivations are very often not at all what they delude themselves they are. Rarely do egocentric, selfish, narcissistic, unhealthy, irrational, character disturbed, or delusional people – ever admit their true motivations and issues. They reside within lives of delusions, fantasies, lies and irrational thinking. I understand that very clearly. And how much this occurs throughout humanity.

And I can now verbally express all this, far more easily and with considerable clarity. Which is about my healing/growth.

This includes the depth of my understanding of all the harmful people who have abused me throughout my life.  Including my husband. Who it was confirmed, is highly narcissistic, with sociopathic traits. And it was validated he comes from a highly dysfunctional, narcissistic family. It was helpful to have this validation. And that I was duped, manipulated and exploited. I was not in fact looking for an unhealthy or co-dependent relationship. I fell in love with a man who did not exist. I fell in love with a fantasy my husband (and his parents) believe about himself. Who lied from day one. And he continued on with his selfish, manipulative, deceitful and toxic ways, for 16 years. Stealing from me the right I had to find someone genuinely good/ healthy/ decent/ trustworthy, who would be a good husband and good father. Plus, the validation of how I know this man never loved me, never cared about me, and is in fact incapable of love, due to the depths of his fantasy/delusion about himself. And I’m glad my counsellor has done counselling with him, as that is further validation, based on her own therapy with him.

But, all this validation, does not take away my reality, that I am different to most people. Feeling different, is something I have always felt, and continue to feel. And it makes me feel so terribly alone. And that was validated as a very real situation I am in. It is not a ‘complex trauma irrational issue’. It is a very real issue, with very valid reasons why, which are not about anything wrong with me. But in fact, are due to deeper intelligence skills.

always an unusual

The validation of all this, is good. It helps in knowing I am correct in my thinking. But, it doesn’t take the aloneness away. Just because I understand why I am so different to most people, doesn’t make me feel less alone. Or make it less painful. In fact, it makes it worse. Continue reading

Thank God for Jeff Brown. I think he is the only person who thinks to the same depth as myself ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

This is from Jeff Brown – @ http://soulshaping.com/


“Next time you have a terrible thing happen to you and someone says ‘You chose your every experience’, knock them unconscious 🙂. When they come to, ask them to thank you for fulfilling their dream. And then, insist that they forgive you before they have even healed their head wound. Then tell them that ‘pain is an illusion- just be aware of it, witness it, and you will come into the Power of Now’.

Then, remind them that there are no victims and that they just need to ‘turn around’ their story of victimhood. When they try to get up, push them back down on the ground, and remind them that ‘everything you see and experience is a reflection of you’. That is, ”you must have had some issues that you needed to look at around violence. I gave you a gift. Be grateful.”

Ask them for some money in exchange. Tell them to give you their pin number. When they begin to get angry, remind them that anger and judgments are substandard emotions and that there is never anyone to blame. If this doesn’t soften their edges, inform them that the ego is the enemy, and that the part of them that is perceiving this situation as unacceptable is merely misidentified… “You are trapped in the matrix, and seeing the world through that limited lens.”

Tell them you are here to liberate them. And then, steal their wallet, so they can learn another valuable lesson about attachment and manifestation.”


 

I am so thankful that at least one person understands how bizarre, irrational, unhealthy and toxic so much thinking out there is.

I feel like an alien on this planet, but people like Jeff truly get, what I understand and see people choose to believe and I think ‘what?????? – are you really serious that you believe that BS?????’. But they do. In their millions!

I told Jeff Brown recently about a Buddhist ordained monk, who told me child sexual abuse is deserved – due to past karma and I should be glad I am suffering in this life – to get rid of that karma. Jeff responded, that I should punch the monk in the face. And quite frankly, the monk would have deserved it – for spewing such evil. No child EVER deserves to be sexually abused.

Jeff understands so much toxic religious, New Cage (how he rewords New Age) and popular thinking, is utter bullshit. As I so clearly see it is too.

And so many of these people who spout this toxic BS – believe they are ‘enlightened’. When in fact they are simply delusional and toxic.

Thank God for people who have the same capacity for rational thinking, and depth of thinking.

My ‘toxic people radar’ capacity – proven again to be correct ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

Following a message I received about a ‘narcissistic abuse survivor’ page admin, plagiarising other people’s work……. I had a conversation with someone I do trust.

This conversation led to talking about yet more people – who I had discerned some time ago as being a fake (due to victim blaming attitudes and dodgy posts) and definitely not what they seem. And the person I was having the discussion with – confirmed these ‘fakes’ have treated her really appallingly, with rage and nastiness. And she was shocked to be treated this way.

It was another of those ‘WOW’ moments – where I had already discerned people as fakes – even though the fakes had done nothing to me personally. And that insight was then confirmed correct by a another person – who ‘was’ sadly on the receiving end of these fake persons nastiness, toxicity, rage and unstable behaviours.

I should never doubt my capacity to discern toxic, fake, narcissistic people.

It is has been proven correct SO many times.

I know toxic people’s traits. I’ve been living with these types of people, all my life.

I’m never ignoring my ‘red flag’ discernment capacity…. ever again. Continue reading

Opinions are like assholes…. but they can still hurt ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

dsc_2707-005

Discernment, wisdom, rational thinking, empathy…. are all required to have a decent opinion. Especially about issues related to complex trauma.

There are some people who ‘get it’. And many who do not. Yet, they will voice their opinions anyway.

I have learned to ignore them. Mostly. But, when they come from people who are significant in my life, they hurt. And that’s okay – because the person mattered. And when people matter, anything harmful they do, does hurt. That’s normal.

I can also now choose to accept their issues are actually theirs. I know that now.

When People Don’t Listen To Me Telling Them About A Narcissist ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

I was part of a group earlier in the year, and I discerned a full blown NPD narcissist – who was causing considerable issues in the group.

I warned a few people – and like most people in life – they didn’t listen and continued to enable and tolerate the obvious narcissistic traits. I left the group and I am so glad I did. I have a lovely group myself, with healthy, kind people and it was the best decision to make.

I now know, only a couple remain in that group and all the other 10+ people – have left.

I knew that would happen. Continue reading
