Narcissistic selective amnesia

There are so many occasions from my own personal experience, where I have witnessed this type of amnesia. In most of these occasions, it was with a parent.

Narcissistic selective amnesia is real and extremely damaging.

If you have not heard of this before, then my latest youtube video below, will hopefully help.

When you are in the depths of emotional despair, it can be extremely upsetting dealing with this sort of reaction from the narcissist in your life.

Before you are aware that you are being abused by a narcissist, you are usually blind to the narcissist’s ways of abusing you. You have no idea that you are a dealing with a very harmful individual.

When the narcissist practices selective amnesia in response to something you have pointed out, you feel completely at a loss. The frustration can be infuriating to not feel heard & and to not be understood.

The narcissist isn’t always conscious of their selective amnesia unfortunately, but this doesn’t make it any less harmful.

If you have had experience with a narcissist’s selective amnesia, please share it in the comment section below.

Feel free to share this blog post, if you think it will help others.

Thank you

  1. I’m dealing with this right now with the father of my daughter. I’m so tired right now but wide awake realising all the ways he’s been controlling and abusing me that I haven’t seen until now, just after I’ve done something about it.

  2. Oh my gosh, yes! So this is what that is! Thanks for this video, it really makes me feel less crazy, and like my perceptions are fatally flawed ALL the time regarding this specific individual.

  3. This has happened to me many times in the past. Not until I started meeting people outside of my family and local community did I realize it was happening. Therapy helped me cope with the aftermath. Thank you for these resources.
