No Contact is the most effective response to dealing with our kind. Whether it is a romantic, familial, work or social situation, apply no contact and you increase your chances massively of escaping our clutches and staying out of them.
No Contact is not easy and few manage it at the first attempt. As I have explained previously, the issue of No Contact has two sides to it – we are trying to break it through our hoovering and your emotional thinking is trying to make you break it to feed your addiction to our kind.
This poll is concerned with your own private battle and is NOT about our attempts to break your no contact. Accordingly, which part or parts of no contact have been the hardest? Perhaps the fact you worked with your narcissist meant that you say him or her every day and possibly had to have some interaction also? Maybe you felt a need to find out what the narcissist was doing so you took to waiting outside his house or following her car? Did you find blocking his or her number very hard to do or perhaps you just did not do it, keeping that conduit open? Were you taking repeated peeks over the narcissist’s social media, maybe even poring over it looking for clues as to what was happening in his or life? Perhaps you found yourself spending repeated occasions each day thinking about the narcissist. I do not mean the odd thought, but rather it was a case of the narcissist springing into your mind may times a day and occupying your thoughts as you mulled matters over, reminisced or obsessed? It might have been that you couldn’t bring yourself to throw out the gifts you had received so you had reminders of the narcissist in your home or was it the case that you lived near to the narcissist so you had to drive by her house or run the risk of bumping into him down the street?
You may choose as many as are applicable before casting your vote and of course if you have had repeated no contact regimes with the same or different narcissists, include those situations too. Provide your further observations in the comments and thank you for participating.
