Summary

A life-changing audiobook for anyone trapped in an unhealthy marriage or relationship

Divorce isn’t such a tragedy. A tragedy is staying in an unhappy marriage, teaching your children the wrong things about love. Nobody ever died of divorce.

Does any of this sound familiar?

  • Do you try to calmly talk with them about basic things, only for it to end up in an argument?
  • Were they once incredibly charming and said all the right things, but now they are mean, apathetic, or passive aggressive?
  • Have you tried to change yourself or your feelings, because you know they refuse to change, merely because they don’t think they have to?
  • Do you feel incredibly alone, like no one will understand, because to everyone else they are perfect?
  • Have you been cheated on yet somehow they make it your fault?
  • Or perhaps you have already broken up, yet you are constantly sucked back in by their begging, promises to change, or even threats?
  • Have you promised yourself that you will end the relationship, only to find yourself going back to them because you feel guilty, sorry for them, or afraid of being alone or good?

You are in a relationship with a narcissist, and if you haven’t figured it out already, they will never, ever change. It is difficult to get divorced or break up with a narcissist without someone who has been through the same experiences you have. Otherwise, you may make costly financial mistakes by hiring the wrong attorney or giving away your assets, all because you don’t know any better.

You can stay in the relationship and be unhappy, or you can choose to break free. But how do you actually break free? It is not easy, I know. Because I have been there. I was you.

What you need now:

  • Someone who has been through the same experiences you have and understands them from the inside.
  • Someone who has the knowledge, training, education, and experience working on himself and others to lead you through the emotional s--tstorm that breaking with a narcissist can create.

I can’t promise you that listening to this audiobook is going to be a "total cure", but I can promise that if you apply yourself dilligently, take notes, listen to the chapters, and follow all instructions to the letter with a tenacious resolve to get better, you will feel an instant decrease in anxiety within the first 24 hours and should see huge improvements within the first three days.

This is not hype, this is what my audience commonly report.

Lot of talk but no real examples and tips

I found this book little useful. A lot is said but it’s all superficial, terms as narcissist, codepend and the dance they do are not really explained. This also goes for real life examples of how the behaviour looks. There are no real tips on how to protect yourself and children against narcissistic rage in divorce. Being mindful and using mantras is not enough. The book is written bij a doctor but it’s still not clear what the expertise is. She uses no examples from own experience of clients

excellent book

It is an eye opener book full of truths and facts, how to survive in his or her toxic , self centred, tuberlent, soul destroying being, you'll come away feeling how hard doned by you were, and say " now it's my time " to give the the boot once and for all

Rambling Pointlessness

I'm a mental health therapist who's been in a relationship with a narcissist, but I couldn't even finish this book. The writer projects onto the reader the image of being the perfect, selfless empath, trapped in the web of a narcissist, a blameless and angelic victim of fate. She talks about karma, energies, and ancestral trauma that lives in our cells. She rambles around the points she's trying to make, as if she was just trying to find enough words to fill a book. and the reading is atrocious; several times the reader starts to say something, pauses, and then continues reading from the beginning of the sentence again, repeating what she just said so she made an error and didn't want to re-record over it. This book is a joke.

Ok

Didn’t really give examples of the different types of narcissists and the reader had many many mistakes in the reading.

Good but I didn’t hear anything about co-parenting??

I got a lot of great advice from this book that I can apply. But there was very little on co-parenting. Which is what I was looking for mainly.

Title slightly misleading

It is a good short listen with some pretty insightful looks into healing. There isn’t much about co-parenting with a narcissist though.

Good points, but horrible narration

There are many good and helpful points in the book, but horrible narration in many ways ruins the book.

Skips a tad.

Great message and narrator has a pleasant voice, but they didn’t edit out the retakes and it drives me a little crazy.

Everyone healing from narc divorce should read

I’ve read a few books and for court I recommend Splitting but for healing this book. Even her voice was calming but she lays it out bluntly. A malignant narccist like I split from is sociopathic and psychopathic evil. A must read if you’re embroiled in the constant gaslighting, triangulation and drama trying to escape them.

Just a long definition

This was a 3 hour definition and comparison of narcissist and empaths. No real substance. Just one type of narcissist after the another and their descriptions and behaviors..for 3hrs. Save yourself the time and just look it up. I couldn't dealt with it for 2hrs thinking it would eventually get to something valuable..it didn't so I stopped it.

Awful Narration, But SO Helpful

I wish the author had been the narrator. It sounded like Siri reading. Other than that, it was great. Hugely helpful and informative.
