I grew up in a family full of narcs and have had several narc relationships. Even though I'm separated from these people, the damage that they've done is still there. It's been very hard to heal. It's literally been a lifelong journey trying to heal from their abuse and mistreatment. I just feel like I'm tired of trying to make it better for myself.

Sorry. I also grew up in a family of narcs as well, so I can relate. My entire life I've attracted those types of relationships unfortunately. Things are much different now because I worked on my self-talk and realized I have value. Between the manipulation they did and the way they spoke to me, I had to undo what they did to me. It's been working and I feel much better. I've also been learning more about myself (doing self-reflection). We have to love and value ourselves in order to rise above the abuse. Hope that helps.

@psychology
Hi. I'm glad to hear that it has gotten better for you. I do a lot of self work too. Healing has been very slow.
May I ask how friendships and relationships are for you now?

@IAmHealing Thanks. Relationships are better now, as I'm making sure I tell others my boundaries. I have learned from past relationships so I know when someone is not a good fit for me whether it's a friendship or personal relationship. It is slow unfortunately, but things will get better. It's like we are undoing all the things that got us to this point. Have you heard of Joe Dispenza? He is on YouTube and has some good information on how to change our thoughts.
