Breaking up with a narcissistic pervert does not necessarily signal the end of a toxic relationship. Indeed, these manipulators are hard to leave and even more complicated to forget, that being said, we are here to help you through this challenging process.

Tips on how to move on from a narcissistic pervert? 4 steps to rebuilding your life

Breakups are tough, especially when you have been in a negative and harmful relationship for a long period of time. Although this is evidently the best solution for you, finding your freedom can be challenging and feelings of guilt and shame could arise. Not to mention doubts about whether you’ve made the right decision.

1. Becoming aware that you have been a victim

Accepting your status as a victim often coincides with the end of your guilt and the moment when you can finally forgive yourself.

2. Learn to listen and respect yourself once again

Listen to your desires, and fulfill them! You are finally in control and the times of being dictated to by your partner are well and truly over.

3. Admit that you are in pain

Your scars are probably still painful, but don't hide them. Be honest with yourself, accept your wounds, your flaws, and talk to a psychologist, who can help you get better. Talking to a professional could help you understand what pushed you into this type of relationship.

4. Start to consider the idea of dating again

This is one of the most difficult steps, because gestures and words of seduction can send you back into your negative spiral. You will surely have forged an armor throughout your toxic relationship, but little by little, you will have to turn the page. The solution here is to not be afraid to love anymore, and to open yourself to the beautiful things that love has to offer.
