Recovery from a sociopath

Self-Love and Healing Journey Day 26: CREATE

When is the last time you have done something creative? Think about the film photography. If you remember looking at one of your old camera films, all you used to see on that strip was negatives. If you ever get curious how positives are developed from negatives, it’s a creative, but a complicated process – it involves removing chemicals by washing, bleaching, drying and other bizarre procedures. In the end we get beautiful quality pictures that receive everyone’s admiration.


Self-Love and Healing Journey Day 25: DETOX

Can you unfriend yourself on social media? Well, me neither. We are stuck with the relationship with ourselves no matter how toxic we get! Some of us need to detox our contact list and some of us need mind, body and soul detox, like a mental enema. See, if you are thirsty and I hand you a glass, telling you it’s clean water, you will probably drink it with no problems. If, however I tell you I just filled the glass from the sewer, there is no chance you will ever touch that glass. What if you drink it without me telling you it’s from the sewer and find out about it later? Well, I would throw up too…


Self-Love and Healing Journey Day 24: NOURISH

I never seem to get lucky with orchids. Maybe I water them too much or put them in a wrong place, but they don’t seem to have that long of a life with me. As I look at the beautiful blooms of yesterday here on my desk, I wonder what I could do to nourish them to make them last longer, live longer and serve longer.


Self-Love and Healing Journey Day 23: BELIEVE

How do we get to believe in anything? If I tell you the world is flat instead of being round shaped, would you believe me? Why not? You have not seen the world from a distance to prove to yourself that it’s round and we walk and live on a flat surface. Conditioning, this is what makes us believe in things or people. We have been conditioned to believe things are a certain way so we start believing in some theory, in people and things. Scientific research, media, parents, peers and anyone we may come in contact with are able to condition our thinking to believe in certain things or to think a certain way.


Self-Love and Healing Journey Day 22: EMBRACE


After being targeted by a sociopath, self-blame is natural, but misguided

My motivation for writing Husband, Liar, Sociopath: How He Lied, Why I Fell For It & The Painful Lessons Learned”  and Narcissists, SOCIOPATHS & Wolves: Lessons From Little Red Riding Hood was multifaceted, including to help myself and others understand and heal. Understanding and healing is an ongoing process, and I am always learning.

Self-blame and victim-blaming are common. Many involved with sociopaths experience self-blaming and are also the target of “victim-blaming.” It’s bad enough when someone we thought cared deeply for us gives us little sympathy and says things like, “How could you have been so naive?” “How did you cause this?” “How could a smart person be so stupid?” “I would have never let that happen to me.” Yet, many of us also do this to ourselves.

Self-Love and Healing Journey Day 21: TUNE IN

Self-Love and Healing Journey Day 20: SHIFT

Répondez, s’il vous plait. “Please reply”, goes the French phrase. I personally love receiving invitations and sending RSVPs, however, when somebody invites me to drama, there is no way I will RSVP! I am now inviting you to share this perspective and think before you sacrifice your class to get even with someone who has none. If you choose to call it “returning a favour” because the word “revenge” sounds so mean, I am afraid the outcome will be no different.


Self-Love and Healing Journey Day 19: GIVE

Let’s take a fresh new look at the word Message together. It seems to be made of two words – mess and age. I am sure you all know what mess is all about, we felt it through all of our five senses – we saw it, we heard it, we touched it, some of us smelled and tasted it. Using our sixth sense now, the voice of intuition, which is or our extrasensory perception, we are able to turn that mess into a mess-age.


Self-Love and Healing Journey Day 18: ACT

 

Acting when you are traumatised sounds like an arduous task, but it takes a special person like you to act on your life, so that it doesn’t act on you instead (again!). During this self-love and healing practice acting is about starting to take charge of your life in every way. Following the principles learned from the past 17 days of practice, once you put yourself first and start your day with yourself first, you will very much look forward to your morning 25-minute power routine suggested in this practice.
