Online Therapy in Edmond, OK for
Narcissistic Abuse Recovery
You may be struggling with hidden emotional and psychological abuse if....
You are doing most of the emotional work in a current relationship while your needs and desires are ignored and as a result are exhausting all your resources (emotional, mental, or physical).
You feel like you are going crazy, and are second-guessing your memory and past interactions with a person.
You feel like you are being punished by a person in your life for any reason.
You have experienced someone suddenly ghosting from your life and you feel discarded.
Even if you have left a relationship with someone who you think may have been a narcissist or have limited contact with that person you may continue to second guess yourself, be hyper alert, particularly in your close relationships, and feel afraid of new friendships or relationships as a result of the painful relationship dynamics you have experienced. Living this way is exhausting. Relief from these overwhelming feelings is possible. Getting support is the first step towards an empowerment.
As a person challenged with narcissistic abuse you may be feeling:
- Confused about whether the hurt and pain you've experienced in a relationship is narcissistic abuse
- Overwhelmed as you replay in your head the various interactions you've had with the narcissist
- Anxious about what to do next or how to protect yourself in a current relationship or future relationships
- Scared to let go because of the power you feel that the narcissist has over your life and well-being
If you are a survivor of a toxic relationship you may continue to struggle to find your voice and feel confident. The journey of healing from the emotional or psychological abuse you experienced is not easy. The residual effects of this type of abuse can continue to impact your life in many different ways. You may find that you:
- continue to find yourself in relationships that are one-sided
- have difficulty saying no or setting boundaries as a result of your strong desire to please
- take responsibility for other people (their emotions and/or behavior)
Good therapy results in a collaborative working relationship with a therapist, where you can begin to experience more clarity about your life and better understand yourself and your relationships. Some of the possible benefits of this process can lead to you being able to do things that you struggled to do before, such as:
- Make sense of your past experiences
- Observe and honor your limits
- Say "no" to people and not feel guilty about it
- Have healthy relationships
- Feel comfortable and proud of who you are
- Genuinely love and care for yourself
These are just a few of the ways therapy can help.
If you continue to experience intense emotions and reactions as a result of your past experiences or are just unsure of how to rebuild your life after leaving someone you believe was a narcissist, then it may be time to get support.
