Willing To Lose It All To Get It All!
Today’s Thriver, Sheri, has a story with a different twist. Her narcissistic abuse experience is about self-recovery – which Sheri has done such a beautiful job of achieving, and it is also about how we CAN lay boundaries and ultimatums and be ‘willing to lose it all to get it all’ in order to have people step up in our lives.
My name is Sheri and I am a Thriver.
I have attracted narcissistic relationships for most of my life, in part because I am an empath.
My codependent behaviours helped me navigate my life as a child, teenager and adult. Two people who are my closest family relationships reenacted their own narcissistic abuse with me.
The closest relationship I have in my life became narcissistically abusive long ago and after 30 years of crazy-making behaviour, it took its toll on my body, mind and spirit.
I was sick with myofascial pain syndrome, anxiety, panic attacks, agoraphobia and depression. I used alcohol, prescription pain meds, food addiction and religious serving to numb my emotional pain.
In December 2015 I was having a nervous breakdown. Something had to change and that had to be me.
I devoured Melanie’s videos and with the Quanta Freedom Healing webinar I had my first release of trauma from my body.
It was such a physical and emotional relief that I became a Narcissistic Abuse Recovery Program (NARP) Gold Member.
NARP gave me the tools to set clear boundaries for myself, to confront the narcissistic relationships in my life and request a change in behaviour.
My closest relationship has healed so much that this person is now aware of the narcissistic abuse they themselves experienced growing up.
By healing myself, I became my own soulmate and best friend and am able to give myself the life I’ve always wanted. I have forgiven the narcissistic people in my life and I am no longer a target for their toxicity – it just doesn’t work on me anymore and they know it.
Now, I am the healthiest I’ve ever been physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually!!
YOU are WORTH the healing that you so desire! Make the investment in your future self.
