Why You Shouldn't Go Back to a Hijackal® & How To Stay Away Dr. Rhoberta Shaler
You're out! You likely took a long time to make the decision to leave the narcissist, or in my terms, the #Hijackal. You also likely talked yourself out of it more than a few times, right?
Then, you make your move for all the right reasons. It's difficult AND you do it.
Uh-oh! Now, you're second-guessing your decision, and beating yourself up a bit. NO! Please don't!
Remind yourself that you left for all the right reasons.
Not so easy when you're feeling unsure, alone, and maybe even a little helpless...at least, once you're in your new place all along. Right?
That's when the doubts creep in, You wonder if you did the right thing. You start romanticizing the past and remembering only the good parts. Oh, I know, I've been there, and I left, too.
So today, I'm talking about understanding what may be driving you to think of going back to the abusive relationship. I give you SIX practical and immediate things to do to stay on the path of leaving, and keep yourself on an even keel while staying away. So important for your growth, self-esteem, and self-confidence!
Every client I have who has told me stories of leaving a #Hijackal and going back has said how much s/he regretted that decision. Some of them actually left a couple of times before they moved away for good.
It's not easy, because you're emotionally addicted. You may not like to think of yourself in those terms, but basically, that's what has been going on.
To break any addiction, you have to go through a rough patch. If you go back, you have to go through the rough patch again. Not so smart, right?
