After you've worked on the first 3 pillars, it's time to formulate your non-negotiables and understand the process for change that your partner must go through in order to truly change. During this phase i's a good idea to start building your solid exit plan and start planning for this, just in case he doesn't make the necessary changes you have identified you need in order to remain in the relationship.

After being in a relationship with a narcissistic partner who uses emotional manipulation and control, you will have disowned and pushed away parts of who you really are to survive in the relationship. This is why calling back those parts and moving into wholeness is part of the transformation process within the relationship (or if you decide to leave).

Get instant access to the Own Your Power Bootcamp to dive deeper into this pillar of self-reclamation.

Many women I work with are not setting effective boundaries in their relationships. Not only that, they are trying to set them from a disempowered place, or are trying to control the external with their boundary setting. This doesn't work. 

We go in-depth into boundaries, how to know them, set them, and enforce them inside of my program End the Cycle.

In this episode, I'm breaking down what I mean when I say "take ownership of your life". When I post something about taking ownership of our own work (especially on Instagram!) I will always get some comments from women who want to accuse me of "victim-blaming" rather than reflect on the message I'm sharing.  I want to clarify what I mean when I say "take ownership" of your life, your side of the street, and focus on yourself.

In this episode, I felt compelled to riff about how I see the use of the label "narcissist" being thrown around too loosely. 

I am also challenging you about possible labels you've given yourself that may be limiting your growth and ability to move beyond the relationship dynamics you find yourself in.

You have likely read and hear about trauma bonding in your travels down the rabbit hole of understanding relationship abuse, and I want to offer a different perspective than the masses. 

I'm not trying to suggest it doesn't exist, but I want you to see this from a more empowering place, rather than stay in the victimization stage of your journey.

Register for the upcoming Own Your Power BootCamp in March. This is a common pattern of behaviour with narcissistic partners, the sudden switch of behaviour, trying to brainwash you out of remembering what they did by sweeping it under the rug, acting as if everything is 'normal'. I call it the "quick switch".

I decided to highlight the topic of stonewalling this week because there is always confusion about this. If you walk away, or refuse to engage in an interaction that is unhealthy for you, is this stonewalling?
