Creating an Exit Strategy
If you are thinking of leaving your partner you need a plan. People are sometimes so anxious to get out they rush into exiting the relationship without an exit strategy. This is not the way to do it with a narcissist.
If married, a divorce without a plan could mean you end up losing custody or a home. Ask yourself, “What is my goal and how am I going to get there?” And then factor in that this is a narcissist and understand things are done differently with a narcissist.
TIP: You do not have to remain the victim of a narcissistic parent and you can choose to set boundaries to keep them from bothering you in your adult life.

How To Leave
If narcissistic personality disorder or other emotional abusers are ruining your life, take action. The narcissist does not get better, but you can. Many people are both afraid to leave and afraid to stay thinking they are alone and nothing can be done.
Often, upscale abusers are perceived as being able to buy their way out, leaving the abused feeling completely powerless. Learned helplessness means you think you have no power to change a situation. It leads to depression. IT IS NOT PERMANENT. You have the ability to change yourself, your beliefs and a bad situation. You can UNlearn the feeling of helplessness.
Action is the antidote to depression.
Life can be good again. In fact, the more you act positively, the more your brain changes.
