Therapist Thread on #Narcissistic Injury & Narcissistic Rage 🧵: the reactions are disproportionate the the perceived 'slight', which is the injury. They are 'over the top'. For e.g. they want you to lose your entire career because you disagree with them on something.
Narcissistic injury is caused by: 1.challenged confidence. When there excessive needs for admiration your attention, time, energy are not met, they will #rage to protect their ego. 2. Injury to the narcissists #selfesteem often occurs because they don't have a stable sense of
Self. When this happens & the smallest failure is pointed out, they will #RAGE This may look like swearing, snorting, spitting, violence, screaming & melting down or covert and is always directed back at the person or projected back on the 'perceived' accuser.

A #thread about #autistic #meltdown. One of the reasons I can suddenly and unexpectedly become overwhelmed is the difficulty I have monitoring how distressed I am. The tipping point when things kilter out of control is as much a surprise to me as it is to other people.

Emotional regulation is difficult when I’m not fully aware of how emotions are making me feel, until overwhelmed. And for me the ‘why’ is always important. My mind wrestles with possible explanations for feelings that are strong but confusing.

Like many #autistic people I find that past #trauma often intrudes on the present. Analysis and recognition of patterns is how I best understand human behaviour. Something happening now that maps onto ways in which I was bullied previously can be utterly terrifying.

.@nytimes Was just asked how I stay so positive speaking up for #Hindu rights when everyone seems to be against Hindus? Answer: My training in psychology. I believe the REAL reason Hindus are bullied has nothing whatsoever to do with #Hinduism per se. It is because Hindus are...
viewed as soft targets/doormats/pushovers who won't speak up or fight back. Many have no idea of their own power or how profound & beautiful their spirituality is. They have low self-esteem. In psychotherapy, my specialty is helping abused people find their voice, regain their..
power, and change the dynamics of their relationships. So Hindu activism is just an extension of what I feel I do at work. And at work I see patients learn, grow, change behavior, and kick ass. I've seen wilting lilies transform into fierce tigers. So I'm confident we'll have a

I take my #selfies for the purpose of building my #selfesteem. I know I am not more beautiful than other people. I know I am not more popular. The number of friends who view the my #photography is very small. But they are survival of sorts.

Yes, I am a wreck sometimes. I don't believe in taking the pains to look like a person who I am not. If my hair is a mess, then it is a mess. That is how I am. Many people cannot afford to be like I am. They cannot afford to let their #depression show.

You want your world back? Go get it. They're not just going to hand it back over when they're done with it (as if there'd be anything left). Consider securing it better next time. But it will take the right ideas, the right principles, not mere political power. That's their game.
"The precondition of a civilized society is the barring of physical force from social relationships—thus establishing the principle that if men wish to deal with one another, they may do so only by means of *reason*: by discussion, persuasion and voluntary, uncoerced agreement."

26. Deal with your mistakes quickly – You are not the first person to make mistakes. You may have made mistakes in the past but I assure you let the past be the past. (1 John 1:7-9 and Rom 8:1-2) confess your sins unto God and receive forgiveness. #SelfEsteem
27. Do you – Be yourself, do your style; there is room for you. God made you different from everybody else. If you don’t celebrate yourself, nobody is going to celebrate you. If you put no value on yourself, nobody is going to put value on you. #SelfEsteem
28. Surround yourself with people who have a revelation of you – Some people don’t know you are busy labelling you after your mistakes. Don’t hang around people who run down your self-esteem. Hang around people who call you not just who you are but what you could be. #SelfEsteem

1. The way we see ourselves affects the decisions that we make and the actions that we take in life. Our destinies are tied to images. One of the most important images is the one that you have of yourself. That picture controls your life.(Num. 13:33) #SelfEsteem
2. You are not likely to attempt anything beyond the capacity of that person in the picture. You are not likely to feel deserving or worth anything beyond the value or the worth of the person in that picture. #SelfEsteem
3. Self-esteem is how you feel about yourself which is borne out of your opinion of yourself. What you feel about yourself determines what you think about yourself. No wonder the commandment is Love your neighbour as yourself. #SelfEsteem

1. Building your Self Esteem. This subject is foundational to our capacity to fulfil God's destiny for our lives #SelfEsteem
2. The story in Numbers 13 :33 is one of the most remarkable examples in the scriptures of how the way we see ourselves can affect our decisions and actions. The way we see ourselves, can have a phenomenal impact on our capacity to be effective in this life. #SelfEsteem
3. Self esteem is how you feel about yourself, borne out of your opinion of yourself. It’s a product of your self image. The word image appeared in the biblical account of the creation of man. (Genesis 1:26-27) #SelfEsteem
