Living with a narcissistic partner is hard but breaking free from a narcissistic relationship is even harder. The thing is, not all of the people who are stuck in an abusive relationship are aware of the severity of their situation.
In the beginning, you accept their ‘little’ flaws convincing yourself that it is just the way they are. You tell yourself that every person has its own dark sides and that if you really love them you would accept them for who they are.
After a while, you get used to their behavior, but the sad truth is… you feel like you cannot do anything about it. You are already trapped in a maze and you cannot find the light that will guide you home.
However, it is really important to realize that there is a way out of that dark scenario. Regardless of the pain, the traumas and the struggle, there are people who somehow find the courage to break free from the chains of the abusive relationship and start all over again.
And, I am lucky to be one of them. I met someone who completely changed my life.
So, here are 6 things that you will experience once you meet a kind, loving person after ending a toxic, narcissistic relationship:
1. YOU WILL BE LOVED THE WAY YOU DESERVE TO BE LOVED
For the first time in your life, you will feel what it is like to be loved. You will feel those tingly, colorful butterflies in your stomach, and you will know. This is the person you’ve been waiting for your entire life.
They will treat you the way you deserve to be treated. They will offer their loving embrace as a shelter for your broken soul. They will heal your wounds and carry your heavy emotional baggage. More importantly, they will give you time to come to your senses and overcome the trauma of your previous relationship.
2. THEY WILL DO EVERYTHING TO LET YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN TRUST THEM
Knowing that you’ve been through hell and back, they will do everything in their power to show you that all of that is in the past. They will be patient and careful with you.
It will take time and a lot of effort for them to get to you, but they won’t give up. Because this person will love you more than words can say.
3. THEY WILL PAY ATTENTION TO EVERYTHING YOU HAVE TO SAY
Your last relationship was a prison. It wasn’t enough that you were physically trapped, but you were also deprived of your right to freely express yourself. You had no voice. You had no strength to get up and defend yourself.
But that is over now. This new person that you’ve met will pay attention to everything. They will be interested in learning everything about you. They will help you pick up your broken pieces, get up on your feet and scream as loud as you can.
4. THEY WILL TREAT YOU WITH RESPECT
It is simple. They will give you everything you ever craved for. They will treat you with the respect that you deserve. They will help you appreciate your new-found freedom. They will do the simplest things that a person should do in a relationship, but to you, their actions will mean the world.
5. THEY WILL APOLOGIZE FOR THEIR MISTAKES
This will be new to you. And it will feel strange at the beginning. But, very soon you will understand that you’ve finally found the right person.
Your previous relationship forced you to apologize for things that were never your fault. Your previous partner abused you and always put the blame on you. But now everything is different. Now, you’ve finally found your freedom.
6. THEY WILL SHOW YOU WHAT TRUE LOVE REALLY IS
This person will give you everything that you needed. They will give you a home. They will share their life with you. They will give you their heart. They will show you what mutual understanding is. They will teach you what respect is. They will go out of their way to simply see you smile.
You will finally realize that true love is not possessing someone, but rather helping them open their wings and evolve on their own.
