The Narcissistic Abuse & Trauma Recovery Podcast

Dec 22, 2020

Today we talk about the three stages of our healing process when we are divorcing a narcissist. We go through our priorities in stage one, sorting out the legalities while starting to heal in stage two, and recognising that healing is a lifelong journey in stage three. 

What You Will Learn In This Episode:

  • Safety is the first priority when divorcing a narcissist
  • The triangle of divorcing - legalities, finances, and children
  • How to be gentle with ourselves when we start our healing process
  • The pitfalls of thinking of healing as a destination
  • Understanding post-traumatic growth and how it affects us

Divorcing a narcissist is tough, especially if you have children. However, if we focus on our safety, on our healing process, and avoid re-traumatising our mind, we can go through it. What we need to do is not beat ourselves up, and create a healthy ecosystem around us to help us heal.
