Verbally Attacked, Struggling to Move On

<< < (3/3)

Tisane, welcome to SP. Hopefully your interactions with others are mainly positive experiences and this interaction is not your norm. I understand opposite points of views and beliefs can lead us to think about it for days/weeks/months/years but know this: Time will eventually release you from thinking about it all the time.

Dramatic events are like throwing a large rock into a pond. The initial explosion of the water is a violent and turbulent event, followed by waves of ups and downs. As time passes the ripples become less and less frequent and eventually you arrive back on the shore in a state of calm.

That is an ideal situation of course. Often people get stuck at one stage of this process and need help moving on to the next phase of getting through an ordeal or event.

Keep in mind others opinions of you and your life are simply that, opinions. No one knows you and your life better than you. You control who influences you and no one else. You are the captain of your ship, navigate yourself to calm and beautiful waters and the sailing will be more peaceful and uplifting experience. Don't let others steer you into a storm that could sink you!

All the best,

I'm not a Therapist or licensed mental health professional, I'm simply someone who understands!

I think the fact that he felt the need to attack someone for no reason at all, says more about him - than it does you. It is not his job or anyone else's job to police how we feel and how we identify.

As others mentioned if you have a therapist, I would bring this up and if you don't there are quite a few resources on youtube for dealing with narcissistic and toxic individuals.
