“Unfortunately, lies spread faster than the truth; time and integrity are the right countermeasures.
To survive a narcissist, you must have a fierce determination and unbreakable persistence to reclaim your identity, reputation, and sanity. The narcissist is not bound to reality, morality, or decency and will paint you in a negative light to whoever they think will believe them.” Steven C.Knapp (used with permission)
The Grace Project
WHO WE ARE
The Grace Project is a collaborative effort to provide a safe space for survivors of Narcissistic Abuse (NA). It bears witness to those who have suffered this type of abuse and offers sanctuary and support to those who are frightened and confused. In this place you will learn what has happened or is happening, how it happens and why you are worth more than the way you are or were treated. NA is indiscriminate. It pervades every society and culture and varies little in its presentaiton. NA as a pattern of behaviour is a universal language and it’s ugly in all dialects.
WHAT WE DO
The Grace Project is a place to share experiences, ask for support, understand what is happening and establish a network that validates your experience. It also aims to restore you to yourself. One way in which we aim to do this is by informing you and our blog and resouces pages are there to enlighten and guide. Through education, dissemination and conversation, we can all become more aware of this form of abuse, explore how best to intervene and ways in which to heal.
The Grace Project is so named because narcissistic relationships can bring out the worst in those suffering this type of relentless assault. You may behave in ways that leave you feeling ashamed. guilty and diminished. The hope here is to provide insight, outreach, understanding and education about NA so that you can prepare for life without the narcissist.
As the confusion is lifted and awareness raised, decisions about how you wish to live your life will become clear. This is a restorative place where you can regain your sense of self and plan life away from the narcissist.
