Trauma Abuse Recovery–Coming Out of Denial For Our Own Sake
Narcissistic abuse, sexual abuse, as well as emotional abuse, are terribly difficult to heal from. Many of us are in denial about just how bad our abuse has been. Healing will require us to learn how to let go, but not many of us know how to do so.
I wanted to highlight a letter from a Youtube viewer who was struggling with accepting their life just the way it is now. They want things to change and are confused because they realize to move forward they must first accept exactly where they are today. Because they are unhappy where they are, they are afraid that accepting where they are, implies things won’t change.
The mind is very clever. If all you have known is abuse your entire life, your mind simply does not know how to seek anything outside the box the mind is. It would take an expansion of consciousness to be able to move beyond a current crappy life experience because the brain naturally associates pain with the unknown. Leaving an abusive relationship, for example, is terrifying because the brain has no data for what to expect once the relationship ends.
To move forward, surrendering to what is allows our limbic brain to relax and not fear so much seeing our reality for what it really is. Once our fear of seeing our reality for what it really is subsides it will be easier to consider other options.
Surrender is one of the first steps to letting go of our pain so we can raise our vibrations, integrate, and move forward in our lives without holding onto the past.
Children of narcissistic parents, who are now suffering from codependency symptoms, may be struggling to learn how to love themselves after narcissistic abuse. Narcissists tend to attract people pleasers, or codependent personalities. Because codependents are eager to please, because they seek outside validation, they are easy targets for narcissistic lovers, and friends.
It is not easy to learn how to love yourself after narcissistic abuse, but with the right codependency recovery tools it is possible. It is even possible to find love after codependency.

Our Secret Fantasies
There’s a lot constantly going in the fantasy part of our minds that sounds pretty strange and at times, frankly, shocking. But coming to terms with our fantasies – and realising they are not our reality – belongs to the art of knowing how to live more easily with ourselves.
