Your Wife Cheated – Here’s A Common But Deadly Mistake To Avoid…
Do you sleep in the same bed but feel light-years apart? Are you afraid of expressing these feelings to your partner because he might become angry or withdraw into isolation even more? If so, you could be in a relationship with a narcissist. In the beginning of the relationship he was charming, delightful, charismatic, attentive and complimentary.
He put you on a pedestal and treated you like a queen. You may have wondered why such a wonderful man would cut in front of the line or treated the waitress so poorly.
You are the prize.
I used to fixate on whether women liked me or not. Or one of the most painful scenarios: The bottom line is: Does He Like You? It was freshman year and we were in the same english class. I was already nervous about even being in high school, but seeing her almost instantly magnified my nerves. It was wonderful, and at the same time, it felt absolutely gut-wrenching.
I liked her, and I wanted to know if she liked me… but I kept telling myself there was absolutely no way she would go for me. She would either think I dress goofy… Or she would think I was dumb… Or she would not even want to talk to me. I came up with dozens of reasons why she could never possibly like me.

Curious as to what I was in for, and wanting some solid guidance, I went looking for advice on how to be a good Army girlfriend. Not sure how wise that was. What follows is some humble advice on how to cope with being the significant other of soldier. Dating a soldier is a commitment, and not one to be taken lightly. Read those web pages and top ten lists. Then do some soul-searching.
As soon as my guy used the g-word, I hit the keyboard and called my sister-in-law retired Army wife extraordinaire. Both gave me a wealth of knowledge I otherwise would not have had. Get used to being alone. Soldiers work long hours that they have absolutely no control over. They work weekends with little or no notice. Bases are often several towns or states away.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder of Abandonment: Following an abandonment experience in childhood or adulthood, some people develop a sequela of post traumatic symptoms which share sufficient features with post traumatic stress disorder to be considered a subtype of this diagnostic category. As with other types of post trauma, the symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder of abandonment range from mild to severe. PTSD of abandonment is a psychobiological condition in which earlier separation traumas interfere with current life.
An earmark of this interference is intrusive anxiety which often manifests as a pervasive feeling of insecurity — a primary source of self sabotage in our primary relationships and in achieving long range goals. Another earmark is a tendency to compulsively reenact our abandonment scenarios through repetitive patterns, i. Another factor of abandonment post trauma is for victims to be plagued with diminished self esteem and heightened vulnerability within social contexts including the workplace which intensifies their need to buttress their flagging ego strength with defense mechanisms which can be automatically discharged and whose intention is to protect the narcissistically injured self from further rejection, criticism, or abandonment.
These habituated defenses are often maladaptive to their purpose in that they can create emotional tension and jeopardize our emotional connections. Once our abandonment fear is triggered, it can lead to what Daniel Goleman calls emotional hijacking. During an emotional hijacking, the emotional brain has taken over, leaving its victims feeling a complete loss of control over their own lives, at least momentarily.
If emotional hijacking occurs frequently enough, its chronic emotional excesses can lead to self-depreciation and isolation within relationships, as well as give rise to secondary conditions such as chronic depression, anxiety, obsessive thinking, negative narcissism, and addiction. In PTSD, the amygdala is set on overdrive to keep us in a perpetual state of hyper-vigilance — action-ready to declare a state of emergency should it perceive any threat even vaguely reminiscent of the original trauma.
In the post trauma sequelae related specifically to abandonment, the amygdala scans the environment for potential threats to our attachments or to our sense of self worth. People with PTSD of abandonment can have heightened emotional responses to abandonment triggers that are often considered insignificant by others.

You feel like you are going crazy. They turn everything around. They will make you feel like you are the one that is going crazy instead of them. You might become paranoid. You might worry about what you wear and what you say and freak out if someone changes your plans or something unexpected happens that you will have to explain later.
This is true of any relationship, but it can mean so much more to a soldier.
Mark Webster Mark Webster is an old school Australian who is dismayed by political correctness, the state of the modern woman and the decline of his once beautiful country. He believes the collapse of the family unit is directly attributable to feminism and cultural Marxism. Sadly, the average man seems blissfully unaware of the negative impacts this has on his motivation, testosterone, and social skills.

Sadly, more often than not, many of us take the easy option — the online option — rather than taking the more challenging, meaningful and fulfilling path. Along with social media, internet dating is one of the prime time wasters in the world today.
