In the Grip of a Narcissist

A narcissist will make you question if you are worthy of love. They will almost make you hate yourself because they can turn your natural need for their attention against you, making it a shameful thing, making you ashamed of yourself for being so weak and pitiful. You start hating being inside your own mind, inside your own skin. You start becoming intimate with loathing.

Hello and welcome to my page~ My name is Larisa--a very common Slavic name that was either derived from the Latin word hilaris, meaning "cheerful," or from the Greek city of Larissa, meaning "strong fortress." Born in Ukraine, I emigrated with my family to America when I was still a small child and now make my home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Growing up immersed in two vastly differing cultures led me to have a burning curiosity about people all over the world. Stemming from said curiosity, I have fallen in love with traveling to other countries, meeting new people and delving into their culture, exploring new cities, and of course, dining on the local cuisine! If I cannot escape into a different country, then my next favorite method of adventure is to lose myself in a spectacular book. I enjoy books of all genres--from fiction and novels, to biographies and ethnographies. As long as it captures my fancy and holds me spellbound the entire time, I will burn through the book like a forest fire! Because of this penchant for reading and travel, coupled with my love of deep and mysterious things, I have been often called a dreamer and I find the title suits me. With that being said, I invite you to stay a while, perhaps make yourself a cup of tea and linger through my posts and feel free to comment or share a thought :-)

    1. Simon, I wish I could say it hasn’t happened to me, but I only write about my own experiences on this blog. I think one of the reasons we hear about disorders such as these more often is because everyone now has access to a large platform (the internet) to share their experiences. It’s good to see you too, by the way 🙂

      1. It’s good to know that it’s being talked about more, it needs to be and I hope you can get out or have got out of any bad situations you’re in.
        Thank you – I appreciate that. I hope to see more of you 🙂

        1. You know what’s funny? As soon as the Fall season starts creeping up upon us my mind always turns to blogging. Something about the weather turning, the leaves changing color, the air becoming crisp and the days becoming shorter makes me want to curl up in my armchair and share my innermost thoughts and experiences on a platform like this. I’m also glad to see you’re still here!! Many of my old blogger friends no longer make an appearance around these parts, so it’s good to see a familiar face 💗
