PHASES OF NARCISSISTIC ABUSE RECOVERY
You are confused about what has happened and may not know that you were abused. You may experience the feelings of depression, shame, sadness, rejection, and anger.
You seek out all information about narcissistic abuse and begin to understand that your ex-partner’s behavior was a pattern.
You’re fully educated about your ex-partner and understand everything that happened during your relationship. You can put terminology to all your experiences as you put the pieces together. You feel like you don’t want to be a victim anymore.
Unless you have children together, you finally have full No Contact. Boundaries are being set and with less drama in your life, you can fully heal with the emotional and physical distance. During this phase, a tremendous amount of introspection and self growth can occur, thus, creating much healthier future relationships and propelling you to a more fulfilling life.
