Going No Contact With Your Narcissistic Parent Is Only A Temporary Fix!

Going no contact with you narcissistic parent is only a temporary fix to the problem.  Yes, brings immediate relief to the situation, but it is short lived.  You must work on removing the damage!  Simply running away is not the answer.  Having no contact during the time of your healing however, is a good idea! 

By no means am I saying you have to have contact with them. Everyone's situation is different. Figuratively, if you were to have contact with the narcissistic parent, they would not affect you.  An example: some people have a relationship with the non-narcissistic parent and call to speak to them.  The narcissistic parent may answer the phone, and you are unaffected by them.

  1. Self-awareness is not self-centeredness, and spirituality is not narcissism. 'Know thyself' is not a narcissistic pursuit. See the link below for more info.

    1. Yes, I agree Lee. Narcissistic parents do not allow individuality, so many as an adult have to actually figure out who they are.

  2. Communicating again is not No Contact. No Contact is not meant to be temporary. Testing the waters to see if I can stomach them is not a measure of being healed.
    There is NO reason to ever go back to a narcissist parent any more than there is to remarry your abusive narcissist ex just to prove you're healed. Seeking love/validation elsewhere is the only forward step in recovery!

    1. I agree completely. If you go no contact, it means none at all. Some people hang on to the wish that things are going to change. A narcissist will never change. Everyone's situation is different. In some cases some people have a relationship with the non-narcissistic parent who is still married to the narcissistic parent. In other words, the narc. parent may answer the phone, or be there if you want to visit the non-narc. parent. (especially when they are still married and get older.) I will have to adjust this post.
