Hope in the Darkness – Life after Narcissistic Abuse

Hope in the Darkness

Being a blogger has opened up so many opportunities for me, including making acquaintance with other light-workers around the world. It’s such an amazing feeling to exchange emails with someone on another continent, knowing that if we lived in the same neighborhood, we’d likely be the best of friends.

This brings to light the fact that we are all one…and because of that, I want to share with you a delightful piece of prose that my long-distance friend, Ether, wrote for all of you:

Do you think that you are alone now? You are not.

Do you think that someone destroyed your self -esteem? They did not.

Do you feel that you were not heard, seen or appreciated? This simply isn’t true.

I can see you, I can hear you.  I am telling you that you are amazing.

I have seen your future and your unique and amazing power.

I know this because I am with you now.

I know this because I am you from the future…

And I am smiling

    Hello there, I have just finally figured out that my mother is a narcissist and that my sister is the golden child , with myself being “selected” by them as the scapegoat!! how can I talk with other people who have survived narcissistic abuse ?

    Kind regards

    I am finally getting out THIS WEEK from my sociopathic narcissistic ex and I am nothing but HAPPY!!!! He has been telling me to get the hell out of his life in no uncertain terms for months along with other choice things, but now that I am, the same sweet guy has appeared that he was when I first met him. This is normal behavior right? He told me today that when I find a house to let him know and he will be there anytime I need him to help with projects or whatever. I told him NO THANKS!!!!… I want no more to do with you and hung up the phone. It feels soooo good.

    What a sweet blog post. Yestereday I went to a David Ricoh workshop and am now reading hi The Power of Grace and it is wonderful.

    On other fronts I will have to email my ex for alimony. Happens every week. If I don’t ask he waits till I do. What can I do?

      Nancy, my Ex used to do that to me regarding child support. I had the agreement modified to explicitly state that he had to pay it by the first of each month. Then, my attorney wrote him a letter stating the same. I then let him know I’d be keeping strict records on when I received the support.

      By the way, your Ex does that with the very intention of forcing you to ask for it. I imagine it gives him a sense of power, as it did my Ex. Mine used to make hateful comments about my asking for “his” money. That mostly stopped when I showed his texts and emails to my attorney and informed him I’d done so. In fact, there for a while, every time he sent me a hateful email, I informed him I was forwarding to my lawyer. The hateful emails pretty much stopped after that.

      Best of luck!

      Thank you for sharing that, Anon! I’m glad this post came at a good time for you. Keep your chin up, try to stay positive, and you will get there…one step at a time (in those big girl boots). 🙂

  5. I’m so glad to hear it. I just met the most amazing man this week, and I can’t stop smiling,. I’m very happy to know that it is possible to be happy once again, For a very long time, I felt I was too damaged. Over the course of several months, I found healing and self love.

      I just met someone a couple of months ago, and I too can’t stop smiling. A good friend came up to me at church today and said, “it’s so great to see you smile again!” I never knew that I could be appreciated and treated so well. Thank you all for this blog–it got me through the worst time in my life and I will continue to read and share.

      1. Kim Saeed

        Thank you for sharing that, Jules. What a heart-warming story 🙂

    Thanks for sharing that. For some weird reason, I’ve been feeling very alone this weekend and my thoughts drifted to the past. I felt the pain (though not nearly as much) all over again. I needed to read this. Thanks!

    1. Kim Saeed

      So glad to know my post shed a little light on your day 😉
