Finding Courage In The Conflict (Paperback)
As a highly sought after advocate, Mirlo has authored articles for publications such as Spacing magazine, been interviewed by Metro Morning, contributed to podcasts detailing narcissistic abuse and intimate partner violence, was profiled in the Tyee series, participated in a Toronto Waterfront Panel focused on precarious housing and was part of an emergency COVID-19 design team that transformed a daycare in a low-income community.
Between the covers of this book, you will find chapters dedicated to red flags observed in a narcissistic relationship. This is not a complete list of every red flag, but it is enough for you to gain more clarity about your situation. Red flags like gaslighting, love-bombing, and controlling behaviours can be difficult to identify in your own personal life.
Whether you are in a relationship with someone with a diagnosed narcissistic personality disorder or not - the label (or diagnosis) does not matter. What matters is that you are able to seek support to help you make a more informed decision about your safety.
There is a page for reflection at the end of each chapter, along with a safety plan at the end of the book to help you carefully actualize your exit.
This is about helping you make sense of your situation and providing tools to uncover the courage you already have to make some tough decisions.
These cycles will not break themselves. This is just a start.
