I received this letter from one of my followers. She had dated a narcissist and fell into a depression after he broke up with her. The relationship was very damaging, and she was hurt by the abuse of a narcissistic relationship. She isolated herself but was beginning to want to reconnect with others. She didn’t know where to begin to rebuild her life, and she needed my advice.
I’ve been following your Instagram for months now, and it’s totally saving my life — thank you. Whenever I feel like I’m being sucked into a black hole, I scroll your feed until I feel better.
My #AskMorgan question for you is this: My narcissist ex-boyfriend dumped me last summer, trying to get me back a couple of times until he would ghost me again. Because I had no idea what a narcissist was or what it can do to your mind, I fell into a deep depression over it. I stopped going out, my work suffered, and I isolated myself, watching reality TV all day.
Luckily, things have begun changing the last few weeks. I’m starting to feel lonely and like I want to be around people. However, I have been alone for so long that being around people, even in short doses, can be too much. I don’t have many friends or the energy for small talk but have to do something. I don’t want to live like this anymore.
