Episode 092: Thoughts from Mom-nonymous
Episode 092: Narcissist Relationships Part 2 of 2 Healing After Abuse with special guest Susan Ball
Now I get it! Susan, this was the day you realized it was time to get help. In the heat of an argument, when he tried to strangle you, you ran out the front door and ran five blocks to the police station with your husband behind you. He got arrested and spent the night in jail.
However…Surprise! Surprise! His girlfriend bailed him out. Susan did not know about the girlfriend until now.
In conversations with her sister, Susan’s sister says, “Well I blame you. If you really want out, you need to move away and never see him again. You do not want your girls to see more of this.” Indeed, it was a time for smart decisions.
This left Susan with raw emotions, guilt, shame, and confusion. Healing was needed and she had much to deal with. Susan hired a life coach who encouraged her to start a success journal. She was encouraged to write about each achievement, celebrate, and keep moving on.
Have your rages and your weeping times. It helps to release your emotions. Susan has shared some of her healing with her daughters so they won’t encounter what she went through. Now a life coach herself, Susan certainly has the background to help others and is doing so. I have learned even more about narcissism from this podcast and I know it will help many others.
