Episode 66: How long is it going to take for me to get over my ex and move on?

Dana Morningstar

Everyone moves forward in their own time, but what really helps isn’t so much time–but what you do with that time. It helps to get crystal clear about the difference between love and a trauma bond as well as to create your “For When You Miss Him (or Her) List” (where you list out in bullet point format every hurtful thing they did) and re-read it when you are missing them. This will help snap you out of the nostalgia and cognitive dissonance, and remind you that this isn’t love. It also really helps to fill the void this person has left behind with positive and ideally enjoyable things. Joining as many groups as you can on meetup.com can be a great way to start getting back into life again.

I am a self-help junkie, former advocate for victims of domestic violence, current psychiatric RN, as well as being a recovering victim of Narcissistic abuse.

My goal is to educate, empower, and inspire other abuse victims in understanding more about what happened to them (and how to prevent it from happening again), as well as how to go on and rebuild an amazing life.

Even though I have had a lot of "in the trenches" experience with highly manipulative people of all kinds, I consider myself to be a student of Narcissism, mindset, motivation, healing, and life in general, and am by no means an expert on any of these topics.

It's for these reasons, that when you are reading my information that I encourage you to hold to what helps, and let the rest go.
