101 Coping Strategies After Emotional, Narcissistic, Verbal & Psychological Abuse
Self-care after psychological abuse is crucial. Taking care of ourselves is critical in the recovery and healing process. It is when we are at our worst that we have to push ourselves the hardest to take care of both our bodies and our minds. It’s when we are depressed and overwhelmed with panic and anxiety that we often let our self-care slip the most, but this is the opposite of what we need to do.
Narcissistic abuse masquerades as love but is a sinister, gradual, and deliberate erosion of a person’s sense of self-value. It is both emotional and psychological abuse intended to undermine a person’s identity for the singular goal of achieving dominance for personal gain.
It often involves patterns of manipulation, intimidation, emotional bullying, power and domination, deceit, egocentricity, stonewalling, guilt and shaming, rejection, gaslighting, financial abuse and jealousy.
Here are 101 Coping Strategies to help you in your recovery from emotional, narcissistic, verbal and psychological abuse.
