Let your joy rise like bread in an oven – healing after narcissistic abuse

buttermilk-honey-bread

The only reason the nark
works so hard
to make you believe
you’re helpless
and choiceless

the only reason
they come on
so strong

is because
they are
lying.

And training you
to believe a lie
about yourself
is
not
easy.

They know
that if they back off
from their agenda
to make you feel small,
you will quickly
discover the truth:

that you are capable
and worthy
and that you have the power
to change your life.

They know
that you knowing the truth
about who you are
will set you free.

They are correct.

If you’ve left the narcissist
and you’re still healing from the effects
of narcissistic abuse,
give yourself these gifts:

  1. recognize that you are perpetuating their lies,
  2. remind yourself that you are safe now,
  3. know that you are normal for having believed them,
  4. and know that it wasn’t your fault.

Drop the idea that you are helpless, incapable or unworthy. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

It’s not your burden to carry any more.

It’s a hot potato.

Once you drop it,

the truth

itself

will

rise

and

will

set

you

free.

THEN,

use your super-powered

resilience

(which you developed

while surviving life with the nark)

use it

to enjoy your life

to the max.

You got this.
