If you’ve been with someone who is highly narcissistic, it’s likely you’ll leave that relationship with some side effects.

Here’s what I mean:

Once you’ve experienced significant gaslighting, manipulation, and psychological abuse, you see things differently.

Sometimes even being in healthy relationships can feel “weird” or like you’re just waiting for the other shoe to drop.

We become used to feeling “on edge”, and like we have to protect ourselves.

This is a normal part of coming out of any toxic relationship and it’s important to give yourself time and space to heal.

Even though healing from this can be a difficult process, it’s also an opportunity –

An opportunity to start over and start listening to yourself in ways that maybe you didn’t before.

When you get a gut feeling about someone, listen.

When you continually feel anxious around someone, pay attention.


And when you become more confused after talking to someone or find yourself second-guessing or doubting yourself a lot, REALLY pay attention.

You can choose to use your experiences to help others and become an even wiser version of yourself –

And that’s how you take your power back!
