Comments22/02/2017 #8 Javier 🐝 beBeeMost of clients want to target women since they are great consumers. This is an interesting article https://www.google.es/amp/www.forbes.com/sites/bridgetbrennan/2015/01/21/top-10-things-everyone-should-know-about-women-consumers/amp/22/02/2017 #6 Phil FriedmanJim, I liked this piece a lot more than I thought I would. Mostly because you've picked out some of the ways women look at things differently than men -- ways that are, for the most part, vastly superior. "Men are from Mars, women from Venus" is definitely NOT BS, at least not in the vast majority of cases. And in my experience and view, many deniers of that reality embody an undercurrent of misogyny parading as gender-neutrality. Like the guys who upbraided @Jim Able and defended @Candice 🐝 Galek, when he posted an article about there were rumors that she might actually be a man (and put a mustache on her photo). That and, of course, those who openly boast that they don't really read much at all of what is posted... yet, key on a phrase or two for an extended tirade. I think you will find very few, if any women take offense at this piece. Cheers and kudos for an entertaining read on marketing.22/02/2017 #5 Max🐝 J. Carter#4 It's not about marketing.
Part of what I teach people and why I personally find this offensive and insulting is to balance the masculine and feminine every within and to see oneself in androgyny and others as well.
Is there any reason to see gender outside of sex?
I have never been able to find a good reason.
I don't think it's funny at all.
It's not politics it's humanism.
Any human regardless of plumbing is able to embody this list you apply to women alone.
Based on what I have explained here and teach others and how more than just me sees it, this buzz is a sexist piece negating the male gender being able to embody these qualities every bit as much as those with different plumbing than mine.
I am a Shaman not a marketer. And it is a well known fact marketing is all about using emotional triggers and behavioral psychology to manipulate people into thinking they need your product or service. Behavioral psychology I understand very well.
And in giving this list you are building an image prison based on gender. What about those with different plumbing who don;t match this list.
You have now have them potentially feeling as if there si something wrong with them for not embodying your list.22/02/2017 #2 Lori Mullins Johnson@Jim Murray, I enjoyed this. I do think #9 should be women prefer Factual Stories. I do appreciate real word-of-mouth experiences from my friends, far more than any case study or product review.

Number two, there are so many fake testimonials and reviews out there, if it sounds too good to be true, find a friend who has actually tried it!

The roots of this tree or rather if you look at its body. It reminds me of each buzz here on beBee nourishing the tree. The tree can be a symbol of a person , a community or the earth as it whole. Each buzz a powerhouse of meaningful words.

The reflection , the beauty of that sight is quite remarkable. Sometimes we bees pass through like light with an idea and the diamond nourishes the idea as it passes through.

Words are meaningless if we live on a deserted island. Words can inspire, instruct and draw us to wisdom. It is perceived definitions of words that we are losing control.
We define our language today as right and wrong according to our perceptions of the world. Some writers imply the definition, but i sense that liberty in definition is taken by the reader most often.
Our words of rational thinking need to sway, convenience or at a minimum ask others to think about their perception. In this way our words become meaningful. But words today inspire other words of discontent, not solution. My hope is that within my lifetime we will see the resurgence of words that have true meaning and discipline of future need.

Comments19/02/2017 #3 Gerald HechtGenerals and military scholars will tell you that eight or 10 years is actually not such a long time in the span of human history -- which is no doubt true -- but history also tells us that 10 years of martial law and a war-time economy are going to feel like a Lifetime to people who are in their twenties today. The poor bastards of what will forever be known as Generation Z are doomed to be the first generation of Americans who will grow up with a lower standard of living than their parents enjoyed.
That is extremely heavy news, and it will take a while for it to sink in. The 22 babies born in New York City while the World Trade Center burned will never know what they missed. The last half of the 20th century will seem like a wild party for rich kids, compared to what's coming now. The party's over, folks. The time has come for loyal Americans to Sacrifice. ... Sacrifice. ... Sacrifice. That is the new buzz-word in Washington. But what it means is not entirely clear.
Winston Churchill said "The first casualty of War is always Truth." Churchill also said "In wartime, the Truth is so precious that it should always be surrounded by a bodyguard of Lies."
That wisdom will not be much comfort to babies born last week. The first news they get in this world will be News subjected to Military Censorship. That is a given in wartime, along with massive campaigns of deliberately-planted "Dis-information." That is routine behavior in Wartime -- for all countries and all combatants -- and it makes life difficult for people who value real news. Count on it. That is what Churchill meant when he talked about Truth being the first casualty of War.

Momentum entails direction. But I love your mind and direction- leadership is electrifying and magnetism is pooling resources. You make me think now- when leadership is magnetic it also leads to electrifying. It is when we have no magnetism or electricity that we don't have the other. The two in one.20/02/2017 #47 Praveen Raj GullepalliLeadership ought to galvanise/electrify the endeavour while Management (magnetism) ought to bring the work resources together and provide the (right) direction. One is Momentum while the other is Direction perhaps, dear Ali? Only when the goals of both match, there is harmony, synergy and success.20/02/2017 #38 Deb🐝 LangeSo many wonderful ideas rich from our experience - I have about 20 drafts in beBee and another 20 in linked in as I jot down my ideas after reading a buzz like yours!

It is amazing in view of what you wrote "If anything what other structure in our body resembles the brain. It is neither the heart or the lungs, but our stomach". Let me see if I can get any closer to your mind without trying to. We don't have to be similar (our brains and stomachs aren't), but te end result could be similar or close. It is like adding 5+2 and subtractingng 10-3 as both give same answer.20/02/2017 #36 Ali Anani#34 The conflict of writing- I decide to write a buzz and then a new comment arrives and draws my attention to a hotter topic. Do you experience this dear @Deb🐝 Lange? I amy be writing on a metaphor derived from the kitchen! We plan only to adapt and change course!!!😂😂20/02/2017 #35 CityVP 🐝 ManjitLeadership and management are the heart and lungs of an organization - the balance between flow and absorption. We tend to relate heart to mind because we mistakenly relate emotion to reason. All of this emotion and reason operates first in the brain.
If anything what other structure in our body resembles the brain. It is neither the heart or the lungs, but our stomach. The brain-gut relationship is only beginning to be fathomed and in organization life it is no different to the strategy-execution relationship.
Why do more eating on a daily basis than we engage in loving, but we base our society on many mythologies, that maybe our metaphors are misaligned. Should we create new patterns of association and explore accordingly or maintain the cultural beliefs that our ancestors imparted to us>?
If we see things in their traditional way - all of this has been thoroughly engaged down the ages, and is it worth dredging up the known when leadership is about the unknown and learning is either a refresh of existing knowledge or cultivation of new. The organizational body does have a certain similarity to the human body, so long as we notice that relationship and actively work it.

Yes, your point is valid and it has the "voice of wisdom and reasoning". I wonder where would you classify sugar substitutes> I mean sweeteners that produce sugary solutions in very small amounts. AN overdose of anything fires back and too much sugar is surely harmful.18/02/2017 #57 siraj shaik#51 (continuation to #49) ... or allow something to skip thro' under the eyes at point blank... Pure extracted Sugar solution whether cane sugar or corn sugar mix with water "hydrocarbons >> glucose and fructose" breaks up and disintegrates easily by giving the sweetness into water (the concentration reduces as well as the sweetness). Similarly artificial sugar sweetener's whether it's sucralose, aspartame or saccharin carry high concentration factors.. But by natural some fruits are sour or not edible do carry sugar, also bee's gather nectar from variety of flowers also the Datura fruit, nectar extracted from flowers of (Momordica charantia) bitter gourd are included.. The involvement of extractions within human body results leading to hypo or hyper glycaemia related to sugar. Nectar been collected by bees from flowers of Datura & Bitter melon but syrups from these fruits has different properties and serves not same or similarity, carries other purpose individually. It's inhumane nature " a phenomenon due to reasons" make them to overlook and under or over estimate the caliber.18/02/2017 #56 siraj shaik#50 @TausifMundrawala at times leaders who carry positive enactment mingle, inspire, motivate and work along with their team members and sometimes directly or indirectly the team forces to be controlled with asserting authority due to a hidden spoiler, mischief, arrogant whose acts (either for fun or specific reason) make the team to face hard time. I will share an instance: Once due to an emergency breakdown required some spare parts, for reason I decided to get them, on way to city from site met with an accident (vehicle was new and in routine use on site), after necessary's done later after three days I was inspecting upgrades required at a place. Lunch was ordered for the team (skilled & semi-skilled) as well as for me and driver with us Prince Tagafi joined along. After casual discussion with all, while signing the document for Bill of claims said "it was matter of your life, use the assertive authority let me know who's behind the accident. To pardon or not it's up to you. Before you ask to proceed the vehicle repair, handover this this letter to head at police station collect demand note traffic controller and give to workshop". I knew there was someone for the cause of accident. Prince support came as master key. Within short time it was unlocked. Two were deported, they were pardoned. As one had younger brothers and sisters. The other had old parents, spouse and two infants. This was 19years before while I was in Saudi Arabia.18/02/2017 #55 siraj shaik#53 @Ali Anani sir after my comment, awaited for someone to pick the point "mixture of oxy-hydrogenated carbons which can be natural or artificial or blend of both have reasons for the extraction process. But it's inhumane to overlook or allow something to skip thro' under the eyes". Sugar directly or indirectly has a controlling part in vision. Sugar whether "Natural or Artificial or Blend of both' has effects on human body which has to be supplied as per "Demand Value" in management it's more of like "Voice of Reason". The requirement or the adequate dose when known or ruled out then the response is effective. Thanks @Donald Grandy you pointed on one of the key point.. it's not just increase but also decrease in levels affects and effects response to dis-function of organs. Damage occurrence's occur in either ways.. balancing becomes the efficient methodology.18/02/2017 #54 Ali Anani#53 Thank you so much dear @Donald Grandy for making a great comment. Yes, excessive sugar in our bodies is harmful as much as excessive salt is. Insulin -= voice of reason, poor eating habits = toxic team members and poorly functioning pancreas -= toxic team leader. What a great analogy! I invite dear @Deb🐝 Lange to enjoy your comment because she is bound to be interested in it as much as I am. I don't want to say to many sweet words to avoid the need for insulin, but this comment shall stay with me for long times .18/02/2017 #53 Donald GrandyAs always @Ali Anani your posts are very creative and wonderfully written. I would like to add to your sugar analogy the management tool Insulin. As we are aware, an increase in sugar signals triggers your pancreas to produce the amount of insulin you need to manage the level of sugar in your blood. Perhaps we could introduce Insulin as the Team Leader "voice of reason" so when sugar levels become critical, Insulin comes to the rescue. As sugar levels occasionally spike quickly due to poor eating habits (toxic team members) or a poorly functioning pancreas (toxic team leader) there are checks and balances to keep the hive balanced. Thanks for sharing your post.17/02/2017 #50 Tausif MundrawalaI think the synergy with which the team works cannot replace it with anything else. I agree with you on all terms that a leader should motivate his team members rather than asserting his authority. As always one of the best buzzes you have ever produced, Sir Ali Anani.17/02/2017 #49 siraj shaikSir @Ali Anani focusing on "Sugar Solution" giving a comparisons with the "Honey" both are sweet and are extracted nectars. These nectars can be from flowers or fruits, stem or seeds, roots or resources.. else from the mixture of oxy-hydrogenated carbons which can be natural or artificial or blend of both have reasons for the extraction process. But it's inhumane to overlook or allow something to skip thro' under the eyes..17/02/2017 #47 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMAWhile it helps to have your 'sugary mixture' to keep employees stabilized and moving forward as a group, I see no harm in injecting a small amount of salt into the mix to stimulate groups who may have a) become used to the status quo or b) whose activity has dropped off.

Comments13/02/2017 #10 debasish majumderlovely metaphor sir @Ali Anani! when one aspire to quench his thirst,the drops are insignificant, his consumption to satiate is fundamental. equally, adhere to flower is chiefly depending upon one, how long he wish to be satiated by the fragrance, flower won't determine it. and thirdly, forest provides canopy to sensible faculty who are craving for it to soothe himself. besides, from a single plant, we induced to assume forest, where our greed for resources trigger us to explore its floor, our greed to exploit it for our benefit. now, the question is how we are being moved and influenced by their apparent presentation. though nature honestly reflect to our faculty irrespective of the strata we belong, but, we cannot rule out the conglomeration we observe among human beings are primarily determined by the basis alignment if interest and economic platform, how long we will be associated to serve the common interests. whether single or the bunch of roses, i guess, hardly make any difference, as long we are focus on it we be satiated by our desired purposes. however, intriguing post indeed sir. enjoyed read. thank you for the share.

Comments17/02/2017 #70 Donna-Luisa EversleyHahaha yes @Ali Anani, though many may consider it pessimistic to look at the negative what ifs up front, I think 'the bubble' of positivity needs to always have a dose of reality close by. I recall thinking many years ago, I had a business idea that could not fail... when it did I was crushed. So yes, even in circumstances which seem highly positive we need to use a bit of caution. Love though makes us all fools, so yes we will always need to face reality when it comes.#6817/02/2017 #68 Ali Anani#66 This is a beautiful idea dear @Donna-Luisa Eversley. "While it is always preferential to seek the better, one must prepare for 'worse', because it will come"- this is an eloquent way to look into risk management. Even in business- when a business is thriving it should also consider the possibility of cold water poured on them.17/02/2017 #67 Donna-Luisa Eversley@Ali Anani... to continue... It will be hard for any relationship to work with a spouse if there is not mutual trust and support. We can't get away from the intrinsic make up of men and women and the way most men may feel emasculated if their wives earn more, or for a woman if a husband is the one who is more adept at handling the home and keeping it in order. That is a controversial statement I've just made, but it is from years of observations and discussions. Though we progress as people with all similar abilities and capabilities, relationships are even more challenging if they are to be enduring and long-lasting. Having some clear discussions upfront may create breaking points, but better than spending years with anger being built. Just my opinion.17/02/2017 #66 Donna-Luisa Eversley@Ali Anani Relationships change and people change. In the case presented, sometimes you get the flip side of the marriage promise - for better or worse! While it is always preferential to seek the better, one must prepare for 'worse', because it will come. I was giving advice to a friend in a relationship and asked if she was prepared to stick it out if 'worse came around' in the relationship, and she said no. Thus, maybe when getting into a permanent relationship we should discuss our 'worse' with potential mates, and get the cold water poured on us. #4613/02/2017 #64 Ali Anani#63 I am waiting for the response of @Javier 🐝 beBee. Estimations range between 60%-80% of our bodies is water. What we throw in rivers we tend to throw in our bodies. This is a new idea emerging.

Close13/02/2017 #58 Ali Anani#56 There is a big difference in adding sugar to water than adding fat to same water. Sugar dissolves in water and we have a homogeneous solution. Fats don't dissolve and always float on the surface of water. It is up t us what to add to the waters of marriage. This thinking is due to your superb comment @Harvey Lloyd. You wrote "We can't describe the points of each in terms of equal but rather how one fills the others weaknesses and compliments their strengths". This is our choice: sweetening strengths and reducing weaknesses or add immiscible 'thoughts and actions" and sour the relationship.
As you wrote "The need for solidarity of family commitment has never been greater". Unfortunately, the waters are becoming salty and we make water saltier. The salting out effect takes place and wife and husband separate like oil and water do.
I greatly appreciate your comment, Harvey. It is worthy of pondering on for long times.13/02/2017 #56 Harvey LloydA very divisive subject matter. It is difficult to discuss this topic without discussing the values that sustain a marriage. A vowed relationship is different than just being friends. IMHO marriage is not a vow of equals but rather of complimentary. We cant describe the points of each in terms of equal but rather how one fills the others weaknesses and compliments their strengths.
In your story i wonder what the answer would have been, if early in the relationship, the wife had been asked, Would you trade your husband for a million dollars?
Families today struggle to meet relationship requirements as they serve to many masters. Work, finance and social all pull at the family. The need for solidarity of family commitment has never been greater. Husbands cant be husbands without a wife, nor can a wife be a wife without a husband. Sounds simple but when we make so many promises outside the marriage then what is left for the family?
Long before the outcomes you described, each party made a decision they couldn't go with the other, emotionally. They became competitive. Each responded differently to this choice, mentally. Each chose their corner and began the journey of competitive separation. The real outcome is neither chose the family.
When i fear my boss/career more than my wife/family, then separation has started.13/02/2017 #55 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#54 That indeed is the problem of underwhelm in organizations that have the potential to be even greater, pure water CEO's get frozen out, sugar water CEO's do not.

Comments12/02/2017 #18 CityVP 🐝 ManjitBTW COSE (Chamber of Self-Expression) does form a part of the DNA of what I engage here "The Learning Journey") so I invite Sara Jacobovici and Ali Anani to look at the opening statement page at https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Self-expressed/info?yguid=74425450
Likewise Debasish, I invite you also to take a look at it. Ultimately your journey might be a learning journey, it might be a self-expression journey, it might be a brand journey - that I don't know. One of the most helpful things I came across that helped me differentiate between a learning journey and a self-expression journey is Carol Dweck's distinction between a Growth Mindset and a Fixed Mindset
Here is the most important thing of all in the present context. I am not selling my vision of the world to you. I am exploring my own and this is why I am and will continue to write a flood of expressions that are currently informed by the words "successful personal branding" - because that not only is a rather mediocre conception but it BRANDS us. What that is saying is that we are all selling something - it defines human beings as constantly selling our ideas to others. It is also why I will file this poem into my GOLD LEARNING and not BLACK LEARNING - which are MY learning journeys.
I am not saying to you unfollow people and certainly not to follow me. Dweck's idea of growth mindset is what transforms my own self-expression journey into a learning one. I am glad that through this new map, I can continue my own learning journey and explore both utopia and dystopia as just one of the YELLOW LEARNING items on my learning journey.12/02/2017 #17 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#16 Dear Liesbeth, I am taking the liberty of using your comment "Love is a precious gift" to address my answer to Debasish's question as to my Darth Vader reference. So this is to Debasish.
What Liesbeth wrote in her comment is a single poetic line "love is a precious gift" - and if she wrote a poem about an Ode to Love, that would most probably be the starting point for her poet. This is not about right or wrong, but what is. The what is or present state of a Liesbeth poem would most likely be utopian. The present state of what is of a Debasish poem would be more likely from the dystopian view. So here the Debasish poem about an Ode to Love begins with "Darkness of Night", whereas I would not expect a poem written by Liesbeth to begin from that point - and thus I treat her comment as the first line of her poetry.
Now, when I engage online I am not particularly interested in my own present state. Each of us if we choose to engage future state development can choose to change. My future state won't be known to me until I get to look backwards to this time in the year 2020. A journey of self-expression is very different from a learning journey. In my early years I wasn't on a learning journey but a self-expression journey.
When I felt that my journey of self-expression was being threatened by a new concept at the time called Brand You that Tom Peters had introduced at the back-end of the 20th Century - I eventually decided that my self-expression journey would be branded "Mark Zorro". That is a great example of a dystopian choice, because the utopian choice would be to just accept "Brand You" ideology. So it is my first major dedicated Mark Zorro page was at Yahoo called Zorroist and I insisted on creating a group where the aim of the group is to unfollow. In the end I had managed to keep it down to 2 followers. "Mark Zorro" and me :-)
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Self-expressed/info?yguid=7442545012/02/2017 #16 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.love is thé precious gift12/02/2017 #15 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#14 Debasish you do not engage in flowery, pretty, delusional poetry about utopia's and happiness abound, instead your poetry draws much more on dystopia and you don't shy away from the problems of the world. Your poetry is naturally drawn to the dark side. You may be Anakin Skywalker but the poetry like your comment itself, focus on the dark side where you say "which is almost waging war against nature". Immediately you are questioning what is wrong, instead of what is right.
Your poetry is not John Lennon "Imagine" (though John Lennon actual life was informed by the dark side and like all genius his songs and his life were a constant contradiction). The Beatles were seen as very utopian (and Brian Epstein crafted that image, even though Epstein himself did not live a utopian existence), but the Beatles had their dystopian too and that has to be dug out from the utopian image Epstein shaped for them see https://offtherecordglobe.areavoices.com/2015/08/03/5-beatles-songs-that-showed-they-could-be-dark/ This is present even in your reflection of love where you are not talking about agape love, but a more primal kind of love. https://www.gotquestions.org/agape-love.html12/02/2017 #14 debasish majumder#5 am i seem to be a villain or rogue in poetry, as you mention me as Darth Vader @CityVP 🐝 Manjit? i just wanted to draw a sharp contrast which we observe in nature apropos to love, where in nature males adorn, but, perhaps in human world, women adorn to attract males, which is almost waging war against nature! i just shared the reflection of love i observe.11/02/2017 #5 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWhen I saw the subject "love" that is not a subject I connect with Majumder poem and I was about to bequeath the honour upon you of being the Darth Vader of Poetry. That honour is still intact because as the poem advanced, it contained more themes to erotic love, the surprise would have been if the poem was about agape love - then I would reconsider your emerging status for the dark side :-)11/02/2017 #1 Ali AnaniNice poem dear @debasish majumder. I don't want to repeat my words in that you are a grand poet. You have just sent me into a thinking time by your writing "I never feel fatigued with love'. My daughter Sara said to me while she was very young "Dad, because I loved you so much I stopped loving you". When I asked her to explain her response was amazing. Because I loved you so much and you travel a lot you keep me worried for fear something wrong might happen to you. You keep me worried and I am fatigued". LOve in her eyes made her feel fatigued. Only yesterday, Sara left for one semester in Turkey. She won a scholarship because of her achievements. Sara left me fatigued. I miss her. Her love is the cause.

Comments11/02/2017 #11 David B. GrinbergVery creative and impressive buzz, Debasish. Time, for all practical purposes, is a manufactured and artificial creation to give order and structure to our lives. As you know, time is relative and moves at different speeds on Earth and in space. Scientists say the faster one travels in space, the more time slows down compared to Earth. Thus, by traveling near the speed of light for one year, a decade or more of time might have passed on Earth. Therefore, if one were to return to Earth after intergalactic travel near light speed, it would be similar to time travel to the future. Moreover, as Einstein theorized, space and time are one and form the fabric of the Universe (space-time). I hope the mysteries of time are solved during our time here on Earth. The wonder of the Universe awaits us.10/02/2017 #9 Joris PlaatstaalWhy do we seem to need capturing life in words and poems?
Time is relative, subjective and objective. That leaves time to obtain a freedom you can use or neglect.
Time (or life) is not something that is forced upon us. I see it as a gift.
Am I wrong in my perception that many of us experience that gift as a burden?
We are not obliged to endure life and time. It is a gift to us. Not a curse.
It only seems to be a curse, in our addiction to achieve wealth and power.
Please, don't let me be the only one that is able to be happy with the gift we received.

cc @CityVP 🐝 Manjit @David B. Grinberg @John White, MBA @Ali Anani @Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín @Gerald Hecht09/02/2017 #12 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#9 Dear @Ali Anani my views on mass personal branding are not a stand, they are a cry of pain, a cry of deep anguished pain, the kind of anguish citizens of the world are feeling right now because they are powerless in watching that marketer called Trump dumbing down America. I don't mind this kind of anguish or this kind of existential limitation because the net result is through it I am the one will get stronger. I will triumph from this pain, I am developing a smarter mind, spirit and body for encountering this.
When the very Presidency of the United States has been reduced to the level of a marketer, this is an excellent time for me to encounter this relationship with mass personal branding. Do you think that Nelson Mandela was weakened because he was put in jail. Once Mandela secured his baseline which was not to get killed by the Apartheid regime, then the years he spent in Ellis Island with the struggle, is what made him.
Once Mandela was released from a dumb political system, his captors had already negotiated their own survival with him and once they knew that Mandela would protect them, he walked out of his jail - thanking the people who imprisoned him. I likewise will thank those that imprison me - this is not a stand, just as Mandela was not making a stand, he was allowing the struggle to work on him, he embraced the struggle and when he was free, he thanked the struggle. As he said in his own words, it was the struggle that made ordinary men, extraordinary. By 2020 the dumb President of Marketing will be out and a new era begins in America - and the next three years are not definitely not a stand, it is merely an imprisonment - the best kind for a developing mind.09/02/2017 #10 Ali Anani#7 DEra @CityVP 🐝 Manjit- I know of your stand and I respect it fully.

Welcome Victoria!05/02/2017 #2 Victoria Toumit#1 @Pat 🐝 Bagano Thank you so much for sharing with me your own experience. These people make their spouse's confuse, then push them in to a deep depression, after all they make them believe that they lost their mind and they never end this sadistic actions until their spouse attempts to suicide. You have wonderful points, thank you again and again.05/02/2017 #1 Pat 🐝 BaganoI did fall for one. Everything was so good at the beginning, a fairy tale wedding, jewelries and other stuff so to speak. But I started to become confused, pain and my previous trauma began to shake me, caused me not only to be unstable but self-destruct.
I tried to make sense of everything, but I knew that ending the relationship will be the only way to save myself. It was difficult because I was trying to avoid the thoughts, I know I am dealing with a "case" but the idea of "love" and how I allowed myself to be trained to submit has taken control over my whole "self." At that point I was even questioning "self". It is difficult to detach from a narcissist, psychopath or sociopath, but it can be done, they may understand how to manipulate every facet of your personality by using your insecurities but, you can be wiser.
I love the points you expressed here @Victoria Toumit and how you are able to explain addictions and brain functions in relation to falling for a narc. Bravo!
