At times, I know it feels like the pain will never end, but believe me it will if you take the steps necessary to work through your feelings and find yourself again. In my opinion, until you work the 6 Steps and dig deep within to heal, you will remain stuck in a state of pain, confusion, self-doubt and obsessive thinking.
The Six Steps on The Path Forward include:
Step 1 – Understand It
We educate ourselves on the personality of a narcissist.
Step 2 – Get It Out
We find an outlet to share and express our emotions.
Step 3 – No Contact
We accept the only way to restore our sanity and regain control of our lives is through No Contact.
Step 4 – Get Real
We no longer deny reality and are ready to face our anger and fear.
Step 5 – Wake Up
We tap into the power of our mind to awaken our spirit and find ourselves again.
Step 6 – Heal
We have a newfound compassion for ourselves and commit to live in the moment.
Immediately after publishing The Path Forward in 2012, I ran a 6 week call where I facilitated a small group of women through working each of the 6 steps.
I’ve included a testimonial here from one of the amazing women who participated in this program and who is now our very own "Fearless" moderator on our forum and Private FB Page – Surviving the Narcissist:
”It was during THE darkest time of my life, just having been devalued and discarded from someone I believe to be a narcissist, that I discovered Lisa’s book, The Path Forward - Surviving the Narcissist, from her website of the same name. I consider myself a strong, independent woman, but knew I wasn’t going to be able to handle this situation alone. He was highly capricious, more so toward the end of our 7 year involvement and our toxic relationship nearly cost me my life. With Lisa’s extensive knowledge on the topic and her compassion during the sessions she offers, I was guided through the Six Steps outlined in her book, gaining a clear understanding of the narcissistic trauma abuse I had experienced. I began to cope again. I am forever grateful for her beautiful spirit and the tireless help she provided me – she is completely devoted to her mission of helping others.” - Fearless
Please join us to discover how you can learn not only how to SURVIVE, but THRIVE after narcissistic abuse.
Being in a relationship with a narcissist is life-altering. We lose ourselves in the narcissist. They brainwash and manipulate us to make us dependent on them and begin doubting ourselves in a way we’ve never experienced before. Until we work through our experience in a supportive, structured and caring environment, we will remain stuck in a state of horrible pain. Deprogramming from the narcissist is critical to our well-being.
You owe it to yourself to work the steps that will allow you to get real, wake up and heal.
