When recovering from narcissistic abuse it is time to redefine boundaries. Boundaries are what keep you safe in the future and lack of boundaries is what got you into this mess. In all fairness, you were probably never taught to have boundaries, because you were raised by a narcissist. So, the first step is realizing it is healthy to have solid boundaries.
As I have mentioned before, if you find yourself in a romantic relationship that results in narcissistic abuse it is a pretty safe bet one of your parents was narcissistic. Narcissists do not raise their children to have boundaries. They have children to secure constant narcissistic supply.
Mourn the loss of getting to be your emotional self in everyday life and move forward. Even though cluster b personality disordered people seek out to kill the emotional spectrum of others, they hate when you can turn off/tone down your emotions. They are addicted to the few emotions they have and seek to kill parts of others they cannot obtain in themselves.
“When dealing with insincere people, abandon sincere communication.”
Leave your humanity at home. Controlling who you share your emotional spectrum with is your right as a human being. Guard your humanity as the rare gift it is and keep it safe. Humanity is the only thing that can save our society as a whole, but there needs to be strategy before bringing it out publicly.
I am not saying to be heartless. As an intuitive empath with a large emotional spectrum myself, I believe in kindness. However, I do not believe in letting others feed off my emotions and declaring me their new source of supply. Cluster b personality disordered people do not have a connection to source energy. And people who have no connection to source energy are always one breath away from energetically drowning. Are you going to let them push you underwater?
