What do you do when people aren’t making time for you?
Do you personalize it by feeling hurt?
Or do you empower yourself by remembering that it isn’t about you?
If you’re personalizing it, then read on! In this article, I will help you to stop feeling hurt when people aren’t making time for you.
Nowadays, people are very busy. They are working–sometimes a couple of jobs–as well going to school and/or raising children. They are active on the social scene and participate in their hobbies. They volunteer, mentor, coach, and contribute to other activities. Their lives are hectic.
Kim Saeed is someone I’ve followed online for over a year. Her blog articles are amongst the top searches for all things related to healing from narcissistic abuse. She is unique in her approach because she focuses so much on the healing process which is considerable. Experts say it takes more time to recover from a breakup with a narcissist (be that a friendship, colleague, family member, partner, or spouse) because you have to grieve twice. You grieve first for the person the narcissist pretended to be (your most loyal friend, soulmate, perfect boss) and then you grieve yet again about the horror of who they actually are: your worst nightmare.
Exactly like drug addiction you are high from the intensity during the initial stages of the relationship. You spend the rest of the entire relationship wanting to get back to that initial high that never comes. Being in a relationship with a narcissist is akin to being addicted to heroin. It will slowly kill you. Every time you leave and are wooed back it is worse which is why the term “No Contact” is the crucial point of Kim’s practice.
I am honored to have her as a guest on Mental Health News Radio. We go in depth about what these relationships are like, why it is imperative to cut off all contact for good, and how important your healing process is so you can recover.
Life truly does begin after No Contact.
