Journal Entry: A New Beginning
Date: 1st June 2023

Today marks the start of my journey towards healing and self-discovery. I finally found the courage to free myself from the narcissistic relationship that had been holding me back.

Looking back, I can now see the signs I overlooked – the manipulation, the lack of empathy, the constant need for attention. I forgive myself for not recognising these sooner. It was a tough journey of self-awareness and learning, but I now understand that it wasn’t my fault.

Narcissism is complex and insidious. It’s easy to miss, especially when you’re in the thick of it. But I’ve learned so much about myself and my boundaries during this process. It’s never easy to stand up for oneself in the face of manipulation, but today, I stand tall.

Moving forward, I vow to keep my newfound knowledge at the forefront of my relationships. I deserve respect, kindness, and love, just like everyone else. I’m proud of myself for recognising this and for taking steps to ensure that my future relationships will be healthier.

I dream of a future where I am free to express my feelings without fear of judgement or reprisal. I envision a life where my needs and wants are valued and where I am respected and loved for who I am.

I am hopeful about making new connections, knowing that I am now equipped with the tools and knowledge to cultivate healthy relationships. I want to fill my life with people who respect me and care for my well-being, as I do for them.

As I close this chapter, I feel a sense of relief and freedom. There’s an eagerness in me to explore this new chapter of my life, one where I put myself first. I know there will be challenges, but I’m excited about what the future holds.

Today, I also extend forgiveness to myself for the times I doubted my worth in this process. It’s all a part of the journey, and it has led me to where I am now. And for that, I am grateful.

I move forward with resilience and optimism, carrying lessons from the past but not the weight. I will continue to grow, learn, and most importantly, heal. I look forward to the day when I can look back and see just how far I’ve come.

But for now, I take it one day at a time, reminding myself, “I am strong. I am worth it. And my future is bright.”
