let’s talk about seven things that narcissists do when you finally decide it’s time to go no contact. But before we dive into that, let’s talk a little bit about no contact first. First and foremost, there are a lot of really legitimate reasons why many of you can’t or won’t go no contact with the destructive narcissist in your life. And that’s fair enough. If that’s you, this article isn’t for you, right? We all have to do what we have to do in our own individual lives based on our circumstances and what we have going on at the time to best manage the place where we find ourselves.
So fair enough if you’re not able, willing, or ready to go no contact, no sweat. I totally honor and respect that. But for many of you, no contact is absolutely the best course of action. And you know it, whether you’ve established it or you’re preparing to go no contact, you know that this really is going to be a key game changer and difference maker for you in terms of your ability to heal and recover. And while no contact is certainly not easy, we’re often racked with irrational feelings of guilt, and shame, and taking on responsibility that isn’t our own. It can be very confusing. Oftentimes we’re actually fully addicted. We’re trauma bonded to these people.
when we do go no contact, there’s going to be a period of withdrawal that can be, I can tell you from my own experience, excruciatingly painful. And no different than when the smoker quits smoking, or the alcoholic quits drinking, or the drug addict quits whatever drug of choice is their particular form of self-medicating and sedating themselves. When you establish no contact with an individual that you are trauma bonded to, that you may be love addicted to, full-blown love addiction, right? The brain’s biochemistry causes literal physical withdrawals.
