All proceeds from the sale of the Love Royalty Collection go to help strengthen the efforts to raise awareness about this very unrecognized, but legitimate form of abuse and to support World Narcissistic Abuse Awareness Day (WNAAD), an international event that is recognized worldwide, which occurs on June 1st every year. Established in 2016, WNAAD is a growing global movement dedicated to raising the profile of narcissistic and psychopathic abuse, providing public pathology education, resources for survivors, and effecting policy change.
WHY NARCISSISTIC & PSYCHOPATHIC ABUSE AWARENESS IS NEEDED?
It’s a huge, yet mostly invisible problem. There is no campaign, funding, or education specifically focused on the effects of narcissistic abuse or public pathology education. Many of the people who suffer from narcissistic and psychopathic abuse (a form of psychological and emotional abuse) aren’t even aware that what they are experiencing is a legitimate form of abuse, and when they become aware they are being abused, they have a difficult time describing it, because it’s so hard to put the finger on. Unlike physical abuse where a single strike or blow, often leaves marks or bruises and qualifies an act of domestic violence, narcissistic abuse is invisible. Narcissistic and psychopathic abuse is the sum of many unseen injuries. It’s an indiscernible assault on the spirit, identity, and the psyche of the victim. The impact is cumulative, and its full effect isn't felt until the damage is extensive. Although bruises and broken bones heal much faster than a broken spirit, narcissistic and psychopathic abuse tends to go unnoticed because there aren’t any laws prohibiting mind games, bullying, manipulation, & emotional abuse.
The more people who are aware of narcissistic and psychopathic abuse, the more they can spot the warning signs and save themselves or those they love from the serious and debilitating effects of being in relationship with pathological individuals. The problems for victims are made worse because too little is known and understood about narcissistic and psychopathic abuse at an institutional level. This means legislation, support services, law enforcement and court systems the world over struggle to recognize perpetrators and fall woefully short in their ability to protect the victims. It’s simply too big an issue to keep ignoring. We need to act now to stem the tide, to help provide victims with the knowledge to escape their abusers, and hopefully prevent more victims falling prey to narcissists and psychopaths.
