[REPOST] You cannot heal in the same toxic environment that broke you. I often tell the people who are healing from narcissistic abuse that healing starts with going no contact and continues when you don’t go back. The #1 step to healing is removing what is making you ill and then working on a cure. The truth is that narcissists cannot be changed and thinking that they can will be the biggest mistake of your life. You will waste your time and be drained and completely wiped out of all your resources. Narcissism is one of the few disorders in which everyone gets treated but the patient. Accepting who they are is step #2. Understand that no matter how much love, care and compassion you gave, it was never going to be enough for them. The mask fell off and who you are now seeing is who they always were, not who you first met at the beginning. #3 Is forgiveness. Forgive yourself for not knowing any better at the time. You did the best you could with what you knew at the time. Forgive them because they also need help and didn’t know any better. Step #4 Let go. Forgiving someone doesn’t mean they need to be in your life again. Forgiving them means letting go of the hate, guilt, blame, and pain that they deeply caused you. Letting go allows you to release old desires and make way for new ones.
