Letter to a new friend:
Here is my narcissist resource:
Thank You Jerald
The major sting of loss for me, were things I thought, which weren’t true, that caused unhealthy negative emotions (depression, anxiety. embarrassment, shame, hurt, guilt…). Lately this information has helped me with the loss of and recovery of bodily functions due to brain injury by turning those feelings, those consequences, into healthy negative emotions: sadness, annoyance, concern, regret, disappointment…
The concept of what good can I make of this (such as build art with a disability income to back me up), tools like that, (and make wonderful new friends like you), are the rocket fuel for recovery. Then my loss becomes a bittersweet thing, and my inconveniences are hassles, no longer horrors.
