CPTSD After the Breakup
Depression and self isolation is completely normal after escaping an abusive relationship. The feelings that you experience will be overwhelming and there are some things that have to take their course, before you heal. I've been there and now, I'm helping others cope. You may feel like you made the wrong decision or you may be miserable without the roller coaster ride that you've become so accustomed to. Those are normal feelings. But, the decision to leave abuse will always reign supreme.
All abuse victims want is closure.... Closure helps you heal and move on faster. However, closure with a narcissist is not what you would expect it to be. You are likely to end up with them blaming you for their abuse...or sometimes, no conversation at all. It's just over; they're gone and you're left wondering if you could've done more.
Sadly you've done everything in your power to please this monster, but they will never be satisfied. When it comes to getting closure with a narcissist, that's something that comes from within.
