Healing Comes in Stages – Time is On Our Side
In PTSD we’re in shock, scared to death, sad, confused, wanting to die, crying all the time. We feel alone, or want to isolate ourselves. There’s a heavy feeling in our bones and hearts; it’s overwhelming and the word “stress” doesn’t begin to describe it. We’re grief-stricken and wondering why this happened. Feelings that it’s our fault haunt us as we also wonder if we’ll ever smile again, or ever love again.
We wonder how to get from broken to normal. There’s no other way a person can feel after a collision and entanglement with a sociopath. This is the only possibility when we are ensnared by one of these people, a con a man, a sociopath and the profound clash with our emotional way of life.
The recovery of true love scam comes in phases stages. Patience and self-love are necessary. Spending time only with those who truly love us is a part of the cure. Establishing and maintaining no contact with the con artist who hijacked our lives is essential. There is without a doubt hope after a sociopath or a narcissist.
There’s Nothing Wrong with Us – There’s Everything Right with Us
Hearing the word “sociopath” is only the beginning. That’s when recovery can begin. After the trauma of a hijacking by a sociopath, our emotions and thinking are all over the place because the trauma deregulates our nervous system. If we take in the effective methods of re-regulating our nervous system and other specific insights, we can fully recover.
We can recover, we do heal when we find answers. One of the most important things we can do is find the way to gradually realize that, though this happened in our lives, to us, this wasn’t personal. Love, and affection, and then betrayal had nothing to do with it. It looked like love, but it wasn’t.
It was a raid, a home invasion, a breaking and entering through our hearts. This wasn’t a relationship, it was a crime. – And keep in mind: No one robs an empty house. We are awesome.
