NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER, RECOVERY FROM NARCISSTIC ABUSE
It begins with a feeling that something just isn’t right in your life. You may suspect your mate or significant other, but you can’t be sure!
Your own research or visit to a professional therapist may bring you to the conclusion that you have suffered narcissistic abuse.
Narcissism effects the victim on a very deep soul level. It is a type of "soul rape" that leaves the victim feeling very violated on many levels.
Not only might you be feeling a deep sense of violation but you might also be feeling as if something has been taken from you. That is because something has been taken!
Over a period of time you have unconsciously been giving away pieces of your soul until you feel there is not much left. You are left feeling empty, used, and discarded like a worn out shoe.
Recovery from Narcissistic Abuse is a process and it takes time, however recovery can happen much quicker if you understand what has happened and know what you can do to take back your power.
Psychology focuses on healing the wounded inner child, increasing your feelings of self-worth and other modalities to help you with the mental and emotional aspects of abuse and recovery.
Recovery from Narcissistic abuse must happen on a spiritual level. I’m not referring to any kind of religious belief system. It is not religious healing I am talking about!
Spiritual Healing is "of the spirit!" It is the process of working with the life-force energy within you; the part of you that feels passion, excitement, hope, promise and all those things you likely felt at the beginning of your relationship with a narcissist!
The goal is to get yourself back! Your Life-force doesn’t and never did belong to the narcissist in your life!
We can spend our energy delving into our past, talking about our parents, our inner wounded child, our past relationships, issues of self-esteem and self-worth and all of it will mean nothing if you are still psychically attached to the narcissist. This could be your problem.
I have gone through two long-term relationships with two different men whom I believe had Narcissistic Personality Disorder. I have been to the bottom of the barrel, feeling completely depleted of my life-force energy and my desire to live. I have suffered Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Long-Term Depression.
I tried a lot of things to get over my symptoms and take back my power but realize the normal methods for releasing a relationship didn’t work.
When I was in my early twenties I was in a physically abusive relationship and when I finally found my strength to leave I was so glad to be out of there. I didn’t question myself or doubt myself because the evidence was right in front of my face. He was obviously abusive.
But with the narcissistic relationship I was filled with self-doubt and uncertainty. Although I eventually left each relationship I still struggled with the self-doubt and under lying feelings of low self-worth.
I went from taking three years to recover from a three year narcissistic relationship to less than six months to recover from a four year narcisstic relationship.
By the time I left the second relationship I had the tools and I knew what to do to heal and get myself back. I was able to recover in record time and move on to have a successful healthy relationship right away.
