Bitchin’ About Trauma Bonds and The “Gray Rock” Method
Have you ever wondered why it was so super hard to end a relationship with a narcissist? Have you ever asked yourself “Why can’t I just walk away?” Or, had a friend in a relationship that looked AWFUL and said “why doesn’t he or she just leave him or her?” Find yourself checking their social media every 5 minutes? Only to feel worse?
The short answer to all of these questions is “Trauma Bonding.” We take a look at how they do it, what happens to us chemically, and how we can tell if we are in one of these relationships.
Plus, we look at what the “Gray Rock” method is (in dealing with unpleasant or manipulative people) and how to do it.
Each week Jill Maragos will dive into who these sneaky SOB’s really are, what they do, and why they do it. And, she will share some tips and tricks for becoming “narcissist proof” (spoiler alert – it’s loving yourself! And, it’s not as hard as it seems.).

Jill Maragos grew up in Buffalo, NY where she earned Bachelor’s Degrees in Broadcast Journalism and Mechanical Engineering. She developed her sense of humor while surviving her crazy family (an actual professional would probably call it a ‘coping mechanism’). Although she herself is not a professional therapist/counselor, she is very much a survivor of it. She is a nationally touring Stand-Up Comic working regularly with Greg Proops (Whose Line is it Anyway? – ABC) and Tom Papa (Co-Host of What a Joke with Papa and Fortune – SiriusXM). She lives in Memphis with her husband, Matt, and her two dogs, Oscar and Ernie.
