My favorite aspect of this book are some of the myths she dispels quickly that plenty of others in self-help and psychology fields tend to pass too much false optimism about: not everybody truly wants to move past the first or second thresholds and so some voluntarily languish there, even while knowing there is a further ways to go (and access to the resources to move beyond); not everybody you hold dear in your life wants you to be shine bright or be the best version of you; there is no utopian arrival where you will no longer encounter toxic people or that you become entirely immune to them. Thus, the idea is that ultimately you learn to hold your own self-approval and integrity so high that everybody else's opinions fade by comparison, even while desiring healthy community, teachers, allies, friends, partners, and such to enhance the experience of living for all.
The steps to healing are laid out clearly in this book, and it's written in a way that's easy to understand. If you've been through this type of abuse, you'll feel like your being guided by someone who gets it and who is on the other side of it. If you haven't, it might help you get a glimpse into the hero's journey of surviving this insanity. It takes a tremendous amount of courage to get out of such a relationship, and even more courage to develop an authentic sense of self afterwards. If you want to thrive and not just survive after Narc abuse, check out this excellent book.
I'd like to include part of the Prologue as a testament to her dedication and commitment.
I believe we all have the right and responsibility to feel empowered, worthy, and free.
My story of self-healing after narcissistic abuse began the day I realized that I'd been programmed to accept the Legacy of Abuse passed down my lineage for who knows how many generations. Where did it start? It's hard to know
The Legacy of Abuse gets passed on trans-generationally without question as something normal and acceptable. When it's modeled by parents, it teaches children that's what love is. Kids then grow up to accept more abuse from others as adults or worse yet they become abuses themselves. Eventually the problem becomes pandemic..
Abuse is deeply woven through society from the macro to the micro level. I believe THE problem in our world is that many families, corporations, workplaces, governments, media, entertainment, and even spiritual and religious organizations are functioning according to abusive values and promoting the normalization of this behavior.
One of the things I’ve found so frustrating in my own recovery, which has been definitely two steps forward and one step back (and sometimes vice versa), is being so unsure if I’m making real progress. This book has clarified that so well for me.
