Learning to Control Your Emotions

You have navigated to these pages because you are having problems in your relationship and consequently you are going through all sorts of negative emotions related to your spouse. Some of the emotions that you are experiencing may include:

  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Humiliation
  • Severe mental pain

The most important thing for you to do is to get rid of the mental pain, only after that you can decide what you wish to do with your relationship. You may wish to stay with your partner or you may choose to go your separate ways. Whatever you decide to do, it is best that you make your decision with a clear mind and not when your thoughts are clouded by pain, depression, anxiety, anger and frustration.

My Life with a Narcissistic Husband PDF Print E-mail

 

Dear Maria,

To say I was surprised by your actually responding to my email, would be an understatement!  I'm touched that you did.  Just to repeat:  I'm not sure I even speak and write English as well as you and it's my first and only language!  Either way, your message comes through very well. I think that those of us involved with narcissists NEED to talk about it.   We feel so crazy that we self-isolate, hide what's going on from friends and family, and learn to blame ourselves for all that is wrong.   When we finally realize what's going on, the need to speak about it is overwhelming.  Finally, we have proof that we are not crazy.  I appreciate this opportunity to tell you some of my story.  Though I must insist on anonymity because we are still living in the same house.

In my situation, it seemed as if every time I tried to gain some power back, by trying to become more independent, my husband would push me back down---but always in subtle ways.  For instance, if I was feeling good about something (such as getting my art in a show or gallery), and I would voice that pride or happiness, my husband would say something like "well, it's just a small show",  when what I expected to hear was "yes, good for you."  There was truth to what he said, it WAS a small show;   (I would think, oh, maybe he's right.  Maybe it really is not as big  of an accomplishment as I'd thought.)  I'd go from feeling really good, to feeling really diminished--in a few short words from him.  Or if I wanted to do something on my birthday and it conflicted with something he wanted to do, he would tell me I was selfish.

Dealing With Emotional Wounds


If one gets physically wounded, one knows what to expect. If a dog bites us, we feel the pain. It helps us to deal with the pain when we know exactly what has caused our pain. We also know that after a while the intensity of the pain will go down. We know this because we have experienced similar situations earlier in our life. We have injured ourselves many times. We all have hit our toe to a sharp edge and felt the piercing pain that follows. We all know that the intensity of the pain will decrease after couple seconds.

It is a different situation with emotional pain. When one does not see the wound it is difficult to judge the nature and seriousness of one's condition. When we hit our toe, we feel strong pain, but we do not see blood, so we know the situation is not (necessarily) serious, even though there is strong pain. When we feel hurt emotionally, there are no clear visible marks either. So we tend to think our wounds are not very serious in physiological sense. However, we do feel strong pain, which conflicts with the fact that there are no visible signs of injury.

Methods That Help to Regain Trust After Cheating in a Relationship - How to Recover After an Affair PDF Print E-mail

 

Hi Maria,

I am in the Stage 3 of dealing with the cheating and this is definitely a rough one. I have to say that reading that page is actually what convinced me to buy your book. You really nailed it. Stage 2 was so much easier than this one is. I am a person that does not dwell on my issues if I can possibly avoid it but this one invades even my dreams or nightmares would be more accurate. This makes it so much harder to deal with, in fact I did go ahead and get medication to deal with the anxiety. I already had an anxiety disorder due to medical problems and till this refused to take meds for it since I firmly believe we all have anxiety. I felt I needed to learn to deal with it, but this one hit me so physically (I was having 24 hour a day panic attacks) that I felt it was just crazy to not get any help.

By far the hardest issue for me is to believe in him again. He says he loves me and I know he means this. He says he is sorry and I also know he means that as well. His attraction to the other woman was more of an ego stroke of being pursued. He is turning 50 this year and I think that played a part. He snapped out of it but only after he slept with her the one time (believe me I have confirmed this with the other woman). He told her after avoiding her calls and not answering her texts a few days later that it was over, wrong, should have never happened and he couldn’t have any further contact with her.
