Congratulations, you’ve made great strides!
In this stage in your journey, you have no contact with the narcissist.  Physical and emotional distance makes setting boundaries possible. Your life has been restored to a more peaceful, less complicated state.  Thank goodness!
You’ve developed new, healthier kinds of relationships.  You’ve learned to more easily identify toxic people and understand they do not have to stay.  You’ve done a great job of freeing yourself from the narcissist.
Yet maybe you’re not quite where you want to be.  Maybe you find yourself still troubled at times by thoughts or feelings from the past or you feel like you’re burdened with some unresolved “stuff.”
Maybe you sometimes find yourself feeling:

  • Angry and resentful toward the one who abused you.
  • Embarrassed or shameful about having been victimized and used.
  • Bothered by little lingering fears, doubts or sense of unworthiness.
  • That there’s no way you’ll ever want to or be able to forgive your abuser.
  • That you’re not quite able to fully let go, move on and create your life the way you most want it to be.
  • A yearning for true freedom to express yourself fully and pursue your dreams passionately.

If so, it’s okay that’s happening – you don’t have to be perfect.  You’ve experienced a lot of trauma and distress in your life and you’re still in the process of healing.  Yet you want to live life fully again – no fear – adaptation – letting go – empowerment – moving forward – true self love.
