Being in a relationship with a narcissist is like losing yourself little by little. You want nothing more than for him to reciprocate your feelings, but this is difficult for him because of his personality disorder. Such a person is incapable of love. We know that the road to recovery from a narcissistic relationship is long, but it is worth the effort. And these signs will help you to see whether you are over it or not.
You don’t feel the need to look for
This is the hardest for victims of narcissistic abuse. It’s not easy to give up on someone you still love and think you can save. The only way to move on is to make up your mind and stick to your resolve.
You now know that he or she will not be able to give you the love you desire. It will be a difficult time, but as soon as the convulsive urge to look for him passes, stop for a moment and pat yourself on the back. Because it’s a sign that you’ll soon get over it.
You won’t be deterred by loneliness
In a narcissistic relationship you’re brainwashed. They make you believe you can’t do anything without them. So you start to fear being alone. You start to feel that you’re not good enough… But in time you can be your old self again!
When that happens, you’ll realise that you are the sole master of your destiny. Joy and happiness will finally come back into your life.
You don’t care about your social life
Have you seen him with another woman? Once you’re over her, you won’t care. You simply won’t feel bad about it anymore. However, you will definitely feel sorry for the people you date with. But luckily, you don’t want to be in their shoes anymore, because you know exactly what kind of man…
You became stronger after the relationship
Being in a relationship with a narcissist is physically and emotionally exhausting. It builds your self-esteem and your confidence. His behaviour is not only damaging to your physical health, but also your mental health.
After the relationship ends, however, you notice that you start to regain your strength and energy. You will be able to smile again, see the small joys and see each day as a blessing. You will rise from the ashes like a phoenix.
Your self-esteem will return
Victims of narcissistic abuse will always think of themselves as not good enough, not worthy, not deserving and that no one will love them. But this is a consequence of brainwashing, not reality.
Think about it! You’re out of the clutches of a narcissist. It takes courage, strength, perseverance and a lot of positive qualities. So, darling, you’ve had enough. And once you see it, you’ll realize you’re finally over your narcissistic ex.
