Healing as a mosaic: Working from the center and then outwards
Have you ever watched a mosaic be made, or made one yourself, you start at the center, and work your way out. The center of the design has to be established and then you can go out as far as you want. All forms of healing, and certainly healing from narcissistic abuse is the same. The challenge with healing from these relationships is that before you even knew this was a “thing” or considered healing, you were definitely starting from the outside in – how can I change them? Why are they the way they are? You have figured that part out. Healing is not about changing as much as it is about accepting, not just situations, but yourself, and then growing out from there.
