In this episode James asks how to “get over” his ex-finance who is a Narcissist. They’ve been broken up now for 8 months, and he still can’t seem to move forward. His friends are sick or hearing about her, but he can’t seem to stop talking about her. He knows it’s a problem, but he doesn’t know what to do.
I give James my response, and I hope that you’ll give yours too in the comments down below. Let’s see if we can help give him some idea on how to move forward. So please share any ideas, or what’s worked for you!
Disclaimer: I am not a therapist, doctor, attorney, or expert in Narcissism…or anything at all really.
I am, however, a former advocate of victims of domestic violence, a former victim of Narcissistic abuse, and am currently a psychiatric nurse.
I’m on a personal mission to share all my lessons learned from highly manipulative, dangerous, and destructive people in order to help YOU get all the clarity, closure, and healing YOU need in order to avoid, and recover from, these kinds of people.
I encourage you to trust your own judgment when taking any advice (not just ours), as only you your situation the best. Hold onto what you find helpful, and then leave the rest.
(((hugs))) to you.
* I am moving away from using the term “Narcissist” as I find it only seems to add a tremendous amount of confusion to things–not to mention there’s a very solid chance the word will be removed from the DSM here in the near future. Instead, I want people to focus on what matters, and that is the behaviors of people that I’m now referring to as “manipulative, dangerous and destructive people”.
Remember: You are not crazy. You are not alone. And yes, you really can heal from this.
Questions? Comments? Concerns? Frustrations? Ideas? Need some support? Just want to say hi? Let me know!
All manipulative people have about the same predictably unpredictable behavior. The good news is that they all come with the same set of red flags.
Learn the red flags and empower yourself with the knowledge you need to help you steer clear of toxic people: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLcjFWuvIFFzJr5eXvb4rG_F-68lw4TK4T
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.
