Step 2 includes Sharing Your Story and writing a Goodbye Letter to your ex-narc.
The purpose of this forum is to share our Goodbye Letters with one another. We must process and validate our feelings before we can move on. Repressing our feelings has been shown to negatively affect our physical and emotional health. It is absolutely critical to process our feelings if we want to improve our happiness and well-being.
A Narcissist will never give us closure, but we can give ourselves closure by processing our feelings and allowing ourselves to feel the emotions we need to feel.
The purpose of this forum is to write a Goodbye Letter to your narc. You can say anything you want in your letter. It is your letter to your narcissist to get your feelings out. You will never send this letter to him, of course. It is simply for your benefit only. It should come from your heart and has no specific requirements. You should tell your Narcissist how he hurt you. Tell him how you feel. Explain what you sacrificed and what he didn’t. Don’t hold back. Get it all out. This is the time to tell him everything you ever wanted to and more.
It is critical for you to confront the trauma you experienced and process the emotions that are a direct result of the pain you endured. We cannot repress our feelings and we must confront what happened to us. If we do not, we will remain stuck.
