Three tips on how to heal from a narcissist

Mental Health charity Turn2Me has published three tips on how to heal from a narcissist.

The charity stated that many people have dated, worked with or lived with narcissists and can feel wounded from the experience.

Turn2Me said not everyone can cut a narcissist out of their lives completely, especially if they’re a boss or relative, but putting boundaries in place can help.

Author Sandy Hotchkiss identified the “seven deadly sins of narcissists” as envy, arrogance, exploitation, magical thinking, shamelessness, self-entitlement and bad boundaries.

Turn2Me stated that Seeking Support is vital. This can be done by connecting with a therapist or a support group can help you process your experiences and trauma. Professional guidance can help you understand the impact of the narcissist’s behaviour and develop healthy coping strategies.

The third tip is to Focus on Self-Care: Prioritise activities that nurture your physical, emotional, and mental health. Engage in hobbies, exercise, and mindfulness practices to rebuild your self-esteem and regain a sense of normalcy.
