It is very difficult to be in a relationship with a narcissist. Their draining personality disorder makes them incredibly controlling and manipulative. You probably knew at some point that the relationship was going nowhere.
So, you made a choice. You stood up for yourself and decided to move on. Moreover, what is important to remember is that it wasn’t your fault. The relationship didn’t fail because of you. Their personality is what drove you to make the decision.
After all, there was no way for your partner to learn to be loving, caring, and supportive. You couldn’t fix their problems. However, a narcissist will never confess to their mistakes. Therefore, they can’t change without professional help.
The best thing you can do is move on. In time the wounds will heal. These are the signs that prove you are over your narcissistic ex. These signs will remind you that it was worth it.
1. You Pursue Your Own Goals
Now that your ex can’t control you, you have complete control over your actions and decisions. That is why you pursue your own goals and passions. Now that the cycle of mental abuse is over, it is time to accomplish something you wanted.
After all, your ex always doubted you would succeed. Well, it is time to be proud of yourself once again.
2. Their Love Life Doesn’t Bother You
You no longer care who your ex is dating. Seriously. You are past that. No more jealousy, no more drama, you are FREE. Well, you might even feel sorry for their next romantic partner, since they are going to become the newest victim.
Moreover, you know what he is capable of. That is why it doesn’t bother you that he has moved on. After all, there is no one who can satisfy your ex’s impossible standards.
3. Your Mental and Physical State Is Improved
While you were in that toxic relationship, you probably felt on edge at all time. Furthermore, when you were stressed, your body was out of control. You probably gained weight, couldn’t sleep well and developed terrible anxiety.
But, now that you are free, you have begun healing yourself. Many try yoga, meditation, massage therapy, or hobbies that might speed up the recovery. But, now that your mind is your own, you feel happier and gorgeous.
It is time to smile once again. After all, no one will degrade and humiliate you.
4. You Spot Empty Flattery
A narcissist often knows how to give empty compliments and sweet words of flattery. But, the truth is, they are never honest. Those words are nothing more than empty flattery. Now that you know how that feels like, you will never fall for someone so fake.
Once you have moved on from that narcissistic ex, you will be able to spot a genuine person from a mile away.
5. Their Attempts to Contact You Are Futile
Now that you have moved on, your ex’s attempt to contact you are meaningless. When you see their name on your screen, you ignore them because you don’t have the need to hear their voice. Therefore, they no longer have control over your emotions and thoughts.
