    I really enjoyed this, particularly the part at the end about being able to discern where the strong emotions are coming from.

    I try really hard to forgive myself from trauma, but I seemed to have attracted soooo many narcissists and people with serious empathy deficits. It’s really challenging 🙄

      Beth, there’s a book in the library called “The Human Magnet Syndrome” that may be helpful to you. It focuses specifically on the dynamics you’re describing. A very important book in my own journey.

      The most traumatic experience of my life was the result of narcissistic abuse. By far. That was seven years ago and I am still recovering. For me, it has taken time, a lot of introspection and a lot of conscious work and it continues to this day.

      Hang in there Beth.

    I absolutely adore Dr Gabor. I find myself binge watching his work on YouTube often because I am bedridden at this moment recovering from yet another brain injury ( Viral Meningitis from a recent tick bite in May ). His compassion shows through with immense emotion and intensity for Humanity and I’m so grateful he has a voice and people are taking notice. He has profoundly impacted my journey to escape Beyond my complex PTSD and I hope his teachings will encourage others to persevere. ❤

      Thankyou @Jack 🤗 (the recovery is a bit like wading through mud)
