One of the most difficult thing is being in a relationship with a narcissist.
However, when you have decided you just can’t live with the mental torment of being in a relationship with a narcissist, leaving a narcissist is one of the toughest things you’ll ever do.
Here are some of the things you need to do after dumping a narcissist lover.

The reason is that narcissists will do one of two things on social media either they’ll post their new and fabulous life to show how happy they are without you.
However, there is a simple way to avoid this nightmare: unfriend, unfollow, block, delete.
Empower yourself through your own education.
One of the reasons so many victims of narcissistic abuse do not realize they are victims until much later or even after the relationship ends is due to a lack of knowledge of what constitutes abuse and what exactly a narcissist is.

Don’t block out the past.
This attempt will be four flat tires on your road to recovery. Though in all likelihood it will be the hardest thing you’ll ever do in your life, it’s imperative that you spend time reflecting on the past and examine how you got to where you are now.
This does not mean taking any blame for what happened to you by a narcissistic abuser because no one deserves to be abused.
