If you are in a toxic relationship, R.U.N

R: Reach out and get help. Reconnect with friends, family, and people who can support your recovery. Remember why you left; we easily forget the pain; keeping the memory alive helps us move forward instead of backward. Healing takes time; give yourself the time you need to process, feel, grieve, heal, and integrate; reach out and get help from safe people for your recovery; you cannot do this alone.

U: Understanding is vital to your healing process. Without knowing why you allow abusive people to keep abusing you, you will continue in the cycle of abuse even after you leave a mean person; you will continue attracting the same kind of people into your life.

N: Narcissistic abuse is psychological manipulation; it is real and dangerous to your mental, physical, and spiritual health. Narcissists don’t change because you are loving, kind, compassionate, merciful, and giving. Understanding narcissism helps you set boundaries and keep your sanity.
