The Narcissist Apocalypse talks with survivors of narcissistic and abusive partners and family. Its host, Brandon Chadwick, provides space for guests to tell their stories while validating their feelings. Each episode of the podcast features an empowered speaker. Each guest reveals their abuse, escape, and healing.
A narcissistic person is self-centered and unwilling to consider others' needs. Someone with narcissistic personality disorder believes they are most important. They need attention and admiration and don't care about the feelings of others. While narcissists seem confident, they lack self-worth and cannot tolerate criticism. Living with such a person can cause extreme challenges. Brandon invites guests on the podcast to share how they survived and healed. Their tales involve control, gaslighting, generational trauma, and mental health struggles.
In one podcast episode, Natalie discusses freeing herself from a victim-playing narcissist. Her husband controlled and manipulated her. The constant emotional abuse drained Natalie's energy and will to survive. Even after she left her husband, she suffered from post-separation abuse. Natalie's cheery voice contrasts her tale.
Another episode features Kelowna, who recalls growing up with a narcissistic mother. She felt worthless all the time. Everything was always Kelowna's fault, according to her mother. When Kelowna was only fourteen, her mother urged her into a relationship. The man became her abusive husband. At 20, she was pregnant and stuck. Her mother and husband inflicted all forms of abuse on her for years.
Survivor Leighton tells a heartbreaking story of child sexual abuse. Her father saw her as a prop for his schemes and perverse desires. Leighton developed Stockholm Syndrome and so became attached to her abuser. Her tale reflects the strength of the human spirit and the will to survive.
