Purpose of "Share Your Story" Forum

The key to Step 2 is to Get It Out! We must find an outlet in which we can express our feelings and share our story. For some, this may include talking to family members or friends, sharing here on our forum, journaling or creating art or music.

Whatever it is, it is critical that you find an outlet to express yourself in a way that helps you release your emotions and put things in perspective. In my opinion, it is the only way to put it to rest in your mind so you can move forward.

Please use this forum to SHARE YOUR STORY. Write about your relationship with your Narcissist. Do not worry about grammar or punctuation. Focus instead on documenting the series of events in your relationship and most importantly, the feelings you experienced.

You will be amazed at what you learn about your relationship with your Narcissist and more importantly, your relationship with yourself as a result of putting your experience into words.

Please use your forum name when you post your story:

i.e. "Username's Story"

This will make it easier for others to find in the future.

Please put all information about your story UNDER THE SAME THREAD.

Be careful not to mention real names, places, phone numbers or any other identifying information about yourself or your narcissist.

Sharing Your Story is a critical step in your recovery. It will not be easy, but it is essential. Taking steps to take care of yourself is a positive response to pain and anger. If you repress your feelings, you will remain stuck.

A Narcissist will never give us closure, but we can help ourselves get closure by making sure we process our feelings.

When you share your story, you no longer feel alone or isolated. You feel connected and understood. It’s comforting to know you are not alone and that others can relate to your confusion and pain.

Please do NOT add your story to this thread, no one will see it. Go to the top of share your story and begin a new post AND this forum is for Share Your Story Only, please post all other topics in the other forums.

Thanks,
Goldie
