One Year Narc Free…

~Submitted by KarinKateriKei – The Eclectic Poet~

This time last year, I was out with my best friend.

My best friend and the one who essentially staged a one-woman intervention to get me away from the Narcissist Predator who had stolen my life and was on track to take it.

I was out without the phone that he’d given me and I was not answering his calls or texts on my phone. Out of the house for the first time in months.

The day was the most bizarre and complex amalgamation of the things I hold most dear and of throwing off the shackles that he’d managed to place on me after nearly two years.

She stayed with me even after he’d been abusive with her, thinking that he’d come around. She stepped in after seeing that I was exhibiting all the classic signs of Battered Wife Syndrome. She literally put herself and reality between him, his abuse and lies and saved my life.

I know more now about Narcissist Predator Abuse than I wanted to but I also know the unwavering love and honour of true friendship.

This shit’s real. Get help. Trust your gut. Trust your friends. Je te remercie, ma sœur d’un autre monsieur.

One year Narc free last weekend…

Dear Grace & Glory,

You’ll get there, bit by bit, day by day. I’ve been 11 months out of my relationship. This week begins my one year anniversary when the discard came in, and he was committed to another woman within 5 weeks. I’v written a few blogs about my experience, and the best thing you can do is focus on yourself and heal your wounds so that you don’t end up going back (disastrous) or attracting the same guy to you. It isn’t easy, and I still have days where I feel hurt by his absolute lack of regard for me or my life, but the reality is, this man is not capable of true intimacy. Once you understand this, it is easier to let go. It’s our attachment to the fantasy that gets in the way. Stay strong and keep on moving forward , putting one foot in front of the other, and read material that inspires you to find strength in the aftermath.

Thank you for this segment about survivors. I am 10 months out of the relationship that nearly destroyed me…although I have healed, I still have a long long way to go…still cry most days…it is the hardest thing Ive ever had to try to recover from…reading these stories gives me hope that one day I will feel “well” again…and want hurt with every breath I take. I still miss him, still love him….and he was the most toxic thing to ever come into my world…the discard was the best gift life could have given me as I couldn’t have gone on much longer. But I am now recovering from my drug the narc. Thank you for these stories of healing and survival.
