Publisher's Summary

Narcissistic abuse is a form of abuse that ensures victims are left emotionally drained, mentally exhausted, and devoid of any self-worth or self-esteem. I was a victim of a malignant narcissist for seven years of my life, and I know just how crushing it is to live such an abusive and suppressed life. The helplessness and detachment from reality that comes with narcissistic abuse are enough to keep you in the tight grip of the abuser for as long as they choose. 

However, I eventually found the courage to leave my abuser, but it didn’t end there. As you may know, ending a relationship with a narcissist isn’t that easy - even if it was the narc who did the breaking up, they don't just "let you go" - they try to make sure you’ll go through hell before you get one over on them.

In this audiobook, I want to offer you some guidance on this rarely-talked about aspect of an abusive relationship: how to deal with a narcissist when they’re your ex.

The chapter list is as follows:

  • Why you shouldn’t go back and why you need to move on
  • Why you need to go "no contact" and ways you can do this
  • How to stop missing your abuser
  • Understanding and dealing with "hoovering’" after a break-up
  • Narcissistic stalking
  • How to deal with "flying monkeys"
  • Survivor stories from two former narcissistic abuse victims

Throughout the audiobook, I also offer some of my own story too, in the hopes that this offers you a sense of familiarity. You’ll likely find that thing things I went through are very similar to your own experiences, and the purpose of this audiobook is to get you to the point where I’m currently at: healed and thriving.

Logical and succinct

I enjoyed listening to this book. The writer presents logically and clearly. I would be happy to try other books by the same author if made available in audiobook.

Wish I read this instead of counseling

Listening to this one book shed more light than any friend or family or counselor ever has. If I would had this book 5 years ago my life would not be where it is today and I would be so much more ahead and would not have been staying in a toxic relationship and I would’ve known what a narcissist is and exactly everything they said is exactly everything my narcissist was doing to me. It made me want to say do you know my narcissist!!??? Listening over and over to this is what really set me free and made me stand my ground’s to get away!!

thank you so much!!

absolutely amazing. I'm going through this right now with my narcissistic EX. she is currently back in my life for the hundredth time in the last five months. it's almost like our souls are tied together with magnets. no matter how hard I try to get away and cut all ties of communication, I always get sucked back in. I was abandoned as a child so my biggest fear is being alone, and she uses that to her advantage. she also knows that my love language is physical touch. she knows I'm not being physically affectionate with anyone else, so the only way I can truly feel love is if I allow her back in my life. she actually began to call me a narcissist and started pulling up articles to make me believe that i was the one who was manipulating her. I read this book with an open mind. I wondered if I was the narcissist. I tried to put myself in the shoes of the narcissist, but the shoes didn't fit. it's been her the entire time. hopefully this will give me the strength to finally be at piece with walking away, for good this time.

Invest in your Future

I like the end story, the book it is spot on with the challenges I faced and continue to face to this day. I would recommend this book for both men/women. I’m sure it will take time for you but it does get better once the realization you lost yourself and getting that back is the greatest gift to you!

Empowering

I felt like this was wrote about me and the relationship I’m trying to escape.....zero contact is what I’m trying to get through right now as I am staying at hotels trying to make sure he doesn’t come to my house and lure me back in....every time I think I want to hear from him I just push play and listen some more.

Thank you!

I was struggling with the fact that my narcissistic Ex recently left me after almost 2 years of abuse and torment with no closure or explanation. I made the mistake of ignoring all the red flags and fell in love with a person that was only present about 25% of the time that we were together. After listening to this audiobook I felt the weight lifted off of my chest, heart and conscious. It was such a relief and what I had been praying to happen for a while now. I plan to listen to it again soon. It was so therapeutic. Thank you Lauren for sharing your story!! You have changed my life and freed me from the bondage! You are such a blessing.

I have suffered many bad narcissistic relationships.

I thought it was always me..... I was the one it was always my fault that I get my self in to theses messes. This book offered me a lot of insight. As I have been in therapy for a long time and have never gotten any real answers. By the time this book was over I was crying happy relieved tears. I am not alone, I am not the only one, thank god.
