Stop Spinning, Start Breathing
A Codependency Workbook for Narcissist Abuse RecoveryeBook - 2013
The characteristics of a narcissistic personality and/or narcissistic partner are such that once we finally bridge a connection to our partner's behaviors, there's simply no denying that we've found the answer. In an instant, we recognize our story as identical to all the others and our partner as interchangeable with every narcissist and sociopath on the planet. But making the discovery that the person we love is a fake doesn't magically give us the ability to walk away or make the heartbreak any easier to handle. The problem remains in dealing with the aftermath - the emotional collateral damage - of what we've experienced or are still experiencing. And that will be your starting point for using this recovery workbook."Stop Spinning, Start Breathing", the follow-up/companion workbook to Zari Ballard's "When Love Is a Lie", presents a journal-style recovery process that you, as a victim, can begin at any time.....whether you're in the relationship or out of it, whether you're maintaining "no contact" or struggling with it, whether your being subjected to a narcissist's silent treatment... and even while the narcissist is hoovering to keep you in the loop. No one needs to be the wiser but you. You don't have to wait anymore for anything or anybody and you don't have to investigate a minute further because you already know the truth. Counteract the N's pathological agenda with an agenda of your own - to get better - and you can start right now from wherever you're at!The exercises in this 3-part workbook will show/teach you......how putting the relationship in its proper perspective - as simple as it sounds - really does end the suffering once and for all...how the mismanagement of our own memories (and resulting relationship amnesia) keeps us addicted long after the Discard and how to fix it...to use simple logic as a way to navigate the torment of cognitive dissonance...to understand why there is so much pain and why a relationship involving a narcissist is different than all the others...that truly facing your fears/anxieties about ending the relationship will help you to recognize what it is that you're really afraid of...look back in retrospect on life prior to the narcissist and decide who you want to be going forward...how to actually appreciate the silence of a silent treatment and use this time wisely to jump-start the healing...to recognize and protect your personal boundaries so that no one - and especially the narcissist - can ever cross them again...to accept the reality of the relationship so that breaking free occurs with much less sadness...and so much more...With this codependency recovery workbook, you will learn to make the right choices and to come to terms with your conflicting beliefs about the person that is hurting you. You can learn to manage the memories that include a narcissistic partner so that what you remember is the reality and not the fantasy.Once you allow yourself to get better, letting go of a toxic narcissistic partner happens with much less sadness and life begins to make miraculous changes!
