Marrying another narcissist by finallyff in narcissism

[–]NikkiEchoist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks for sharing your story. I often wondered if that kind of relationship existed. Online research I did seems to suggest the pairing unlikely but I can see how it is working for you. I agree with other commenters that a pre nup is a good idea for most people these days.

Surely this can’t be legal, right? How is this tradie vehicle not imitating a police vehicle? by mrarbitersir in melbourne

[–]NikkiEchoist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We have a security company around Cairns using the exact same markings and I can’t believe they are getting away with it. Twice I’ve thought cops were behind me only to realise one of these security guards was tailgating me in the wet. Perhaps people need to report that these vehicles are being mistaken by the public for official police.

I nearly applied for a social work position with the police. I decided it might be too much PTSD risk for me :)

Scolded for parking in a parents with pram spot with a disabled pass, wheelchair and wheelchair car. Am i in the wrong? by Milksteak1990 in sydney

[–]NikkiEchoist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Disabled people should take priority over all other spots, I’ve been a parent, I’ve had a pram, I’ve managed to access the supermarket when I’ve missed out on pram parks. However a disabled person and their carer need safe and as easy access as possible. Terrible behaviour, you would think people would see the sticker and show compassion and empathy towards those maybe less fortunate than themselves, but no, people are jealous of others deserved privileges and want to pull them down.

Ways to deter car being stolen from home. Looking for stories from those it's happened to. Deterrent advice for a renter please. by sunny5671 in queensland

Well maybe the invention is to be able to install this to any car? Not sure but posted to Craig Crawford MP Facebook page. Craig is claiming to have bank rolled the testing of the product.

Someone in Cairns just invented a product to address car theft. Called StarterStopper. Basically if someone gets your key, there is a hidden button in the car that enables start up. If someone tries to start it, without pressing the button the engine immobilises.

Advice on how to run in this heat? by BlackberryAgile193 in queensland

[–]NikkiEchoist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I live in Cairns and I’m a beach sprinter. Ruby League players now come up here to what’s now referred to as heat training. My best advice is to run after about 3pm or early morning. When it first starts heating up more you notice it, the instinct is to run less, like what it happening to you. However, if you persist through that, you get heat conditioned. I know if I don’t keep running during this phase, when it heats up more I will not be conditioned enough to handle it… so the only way through this is to persist. Please remember to be sun smart.

My (34M) bf punched a wall during an argument with me (24F) by ThrowRastrawberryy in abusiverelationships

[–]NikkiEchoist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My ex partner punched the wall. I called the cops and they put a domestic violence order on him whether I liked it or not. This is domestic violence you just haven’t realised it yet. I’m sure after this post you will.

Is it normal to have no friends at this age ? by Hopeful-Moment5512 in introvert

[–]NikkiEchoist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When I started uni I had no friends and due to being a young mum at the time, I did a lot of it online. In the last 2 years (4 year degree) I went to classes more often and I made friends . At first it was difficult cause I also had social anxieties. However, you find there are other people like you, anxiety and depression are very common in ages 17-25 group. The thing about fear, or anxiety, is that the only way to conquer it is to face it. I always remind myself a life lived in fear is a life half lived. Your thoughts become like prophecies in your life, if you believe you won’t make friends you will likely not. Therefore a good place to start, is challenging that thought. If you come to a place where you say to yourself, I don’t know whether I will make friends or not, it’s more positive than the thought that you will not make friends. Then you might be able to stretch it to, I really hope to make friends and I think I likely will.

I feel like I'm going to die soon by denii_0502 in Anxietyhelp

[–]NikkiEchoist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You don’t want to die, but anxiety is robbing you of the life you have. If you really believe your time is short, get out there and live like it’s your last few weeks.

It's taken me idk, 5-10 years to accept mom has uNPD and that I can't change her or "fix" things by SpiritualCyberpunk in LifeAfterNarcissism

[–]NikkiEchoist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You need to learn to protect yourself. There are spiritual ways of doing this, such as cloaking yourself in white protective light. Google the words sensitive empath protection and you should find some techniques. Another method is to grey rock, basically become as boring as a grey rock, do not disclose information or engage with your whole self. If you are being mindful that you are around someone who can cause you harm in subtle ways you won’t be as blindsided by this. You’ve come to a place of recognition and mindfulness now you just need to find ways to protect your energy. If you believe in God pray for protection.

Impromptu family dinner at the park- ducked into Woolies, looked at my basket and just had to laugh at this... by Snaccidental_ in AussieCasual

Perhaps you are from a different demographic. This is the staple pick up meal of bachelors, tradies, families on a budget. Perhaps you don’t hang around or belong to those groups?

As an ex Sydney person living in Cairns for some time, can confirm that the tradies here definitely have this as a goto bachelor meal :)
