THE QUESTION – A SPAN Member Asked: “HOW DO I GO FROM FEELING SCARED, ALONE AND SAD TO FINDING THE ANGER I NEED TO TAKE ACTION AND LEAVE OR GET OVER THE NARCISSIST?”
(Join SPAN: https://queenbeeing.com/SPAN)
A lot of people think that anger is all bad – but that’s not always the case. And while I’m sure someone will disagree with me, I think that, sometimes, for those of us who have been stuck in narcissistic relationships, we need something big to get us to take real action.
We spend so much time being afraid, sad, alone – and feeling not good enough – that being angry can wake us up and propel us into action.
In this video, I’ll give you the bottom line on anger, and I will explain what I mean by starting with a story from my own life.
And, I’ll share some techniques that can help push you past the scared, sad and desperate feelings we all experience at or near the end of a toxic relationship with a narcissist – this will help you to take the action necessary to move forward and start building a healthier, better life for yourself.
Your turn: after you watch the video – tell me what you think.
