Narcissistic Abuse Recovery: How to Write, Accept and Release Your Abuse Story

Written by Angela Atkinson

When you’ve experienced narcissistic abuse, it can follow you around in your life, even after you’ve left the situation – and that can seriously damage your quality of life, to say the least. In this video, I’ll offer you a quick overview on what you need to do to write, acknowledge and release your abuse story – plus, I’ll offer tips on how to start dreaming up your new one.

Here’s the 10-Sheets Method Mentioned in the Video:

  • Take 10 sheets of paper and on the first one, write “my abuse story” and add a byline.
  • Then number the second page 1 through 8.
  • In each spot, write down a major point in your abuse story.
    • For example, #1 might be the years leading to the abuse, if you think you’ve got some background that contributed to your current situation.
    • Or it might be meeting the narcissist. The next point might be the “honeymoon phase,” maybe, and then you might go forward with something like the first time you started to see a problem.
    • Maybe the red flags started early, but you didn’t notice – or maybe it just came on suddenly and shocked you. Either way, write down those points.
  • Then, on each of the following pages, number the top to correspond with the points in your “table of contents: page.
  • On each page, write down three questions or statements about the time in your life that you’re covering – and when you’re done, you’ll have a good outline for your abuse story.
  • Read it back to yourself and allow yourself to feel the feelings one last time – because after today, you’re going to move forward. So cry if you need to. Scream. Yell. Have regrets – go ahead. But LIMIT yourself – give yourself a specific amount of time to get through this part. I usually like to do 24 hours – but you might choose to go up to 7 days, if you need it. Don’t do more than seven days though – anything else is counterproductive for you.
