Merry Christmas from Shrink4Men

I want thank everyone who reads and/or participates on Shrink4Men. This is a difficult time of year for many people, particularly if you’re separated from you children or are other painful circumstances.

Here’s a little video that always makes me smile just like it did the first time I saw it over 30 years ago. Maybe I’m sentimental, but I still love Rankin & Bass.

Happy Holidays!

    Merry Christmas to all here, but very especially to Dr T. This site has been of so much help to me over the past 4 months that I really don’t think that I would have made it without. And I mean that. Only regret is that I didn’t find it earlier. I haven’t posted my story yet but believe that I am getting to a point where I’m ready to take that step.
    Dr T, I don’t know where you find the time to run this site, while consistently and frequently posting such insightful, helpful and contemporarily brave articles. Please keep up the great work.

    Just like to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all. First time poster here and I have to take my hat off to you Dr Tara for an excellent website. Very easy on the eye and your writing style is very clear and easy to follow.

    My brief story is my first GF I believe was a full blown APD, and since she is now long gone I have happily recovered from that trauma and managed to clear up the carnage she left in her wake.

    The damage that hurt the most was that from my so called “best friend” who was Narcissist/Sociopath I believe. I tried everything to stop his destructive behaviour from firstly ignoring him, which didnt work…..trying to reason with him which also failed. Then mirroring his own behaviour……that didnt work either, he just got nasty! I finally realised that I had to dump this idiot to get him off my back.

    Its now 5 years into my no contact rule with him, but I kept in touch with some of those from that circle of friends. I soon realised that he was using those friends as a means of still getting at me as he had manipulated them into bullying on his behalf. I realised that the no contact rule had to be total and unfortunately I have now lost a hell of a lot of friends all because of one person!

    So can you tell me Dr Tara, why do I attract these idiots?????

    Thanks again for the great website

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you as well, Dr. P. Keep up the good and insightful writing. More folks need to see writing of this sort.

    Merry Christmas and assorted holidays to you, as well. Though I’m with family, I’m still dealing with the ghosts of Christmas-past. It was this time last year (literally) that the ex was removing the last of her things from the house. I’m taking it easy, and giving myself some “me” time in between the family events.

    You, your site, and my fellow brothers who have been posting here (as well as the occasional sister) have all been of enormous comfort and help to me over the last several months. I don’t recall exactly how I found the site (probably on one of my “info binges” trying to make sense of it all), but my time and experiences as a resident commenter here have been among those I will always treasure.

    My one-year anniversary of No Contact is fast approaching. Let us all continue to rebuild our lives in 2010, and remember who we are, and why we’re here on Earth.

    Thank you, Dr. Tara, and all of you. My gratitude extends far beyond the boundaries of what I can express.
