Going “no contact” can be difficult. It helps to prepare yourself as much as possible.
1. Familiarize yourself with the seven different types of abuse and several examples of each, as well as the different terminology surrounding abuse such as “gaslighting,” “projection,” “future faking,” “cognitive dissonance,” “hoovering,” “narcissism,” “Stockholm Syndrome,” “trauma bonds,” and “love bombing” to name a few.
2. Create your “For When You Miss Him/Her” List to help cut through the cognitive dissonance and to see them clearly.
3.Support Groups to get 24/7 support, clarity, and validation.

Looking for daily motivation, inspiration, or more information about narcissism in general? You can find me (Dana Morningstar) at:
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.
