    Sandra Brown had an article ‘remembering our roots: joyce brown’s influence on the pathological love relationship recovery process’. joyce was in a 25 year relationship with a narcissist, 10 year with a spath. at 60 she decided to get a life. she went to college, became an artist. at 70 she became a hospital chaplain and fed the poor very week. she says if you aren’t living a big enough life, any psychopath will do.

    I just read this article. It was very good! My take away was to fill my life with things I love, “live as big as your heart, live as big as your personality.”
    So, I need to get up out of my mental and emotional fetal position. It’s been long enough! It still hurts, that for sure. I am still struggling with no-contact. I don’t contact him, he calls me from a masked number, but I listen to the voicemails he leaves. And I still think about him.

      jaybird-if you listen to his voicemail you are still in contact. best to only hear voicemail of people who are friends.

    Wow! I just read the article and it’s exactly what I needed to hear. It’s so true. If you fill your life with excitement and fun and do what makes you happy, you won’t look to the N/P/S for it. This is something I’ve been struggling with on this crazy journey but I have more good days than bad. 🙂 Thanks for posting this!
