Believe in yourself and don’t fall in any trap.

A. Take Support From Friends And Family

If you have pushed away your family members and friends; while being with a narcissist, get back to them at the earliest. You are going to need them.

Your support team of friends and family members will be able to see things clearly and will care for you whenever it will be required.
