Living Through and Recovering From a Relationship with a Narcissist

New Year, New Changes!

Share :

Here we are in 2019. What’s the statute of limitations for saying “Happy New Year?” 

I’m not sure I made the cut-off, but I wanted to take the time to say it anyway and wish you well in your continued recovery.  

New years can offer us hope for new beginnings. I’m trying to be cautiously optimistic myself, and take it one day at a time. I’ve learned that sometimes the largeness of a passing year can make me feel lost because I get overwhelmed by an event or pattern of events.  Sometimes it’s better for me to focus on the new days as the new beginnings. It’s even come down to “one hour at a time” when I was going through some of my worst moments.

So if that’s where you are, don’t feel bad if it being a new year doesn’t mean that much to you right now.  You’re not alone.

I know I had mentioned a while back that there would be some changes. In the spirit of progress, moving forward, and doing something new, some of them are finally coming together.

Here are some new things around Fairy Tale Shadows that I’d like to announce that have just happened or will be happening in the next few weeks: 

  • The website now has a new look and organization structure.
  • The Facebook page will soon have a private group for you to talk with each other there instead of in public in the comments section.
  • There will soon be an area on the website where you can submit and share your stories for publication on the website if you desire. 
  • I’m working on new and updated resources for download (free) that you can use to help recover.

Thank you for your patience as I roll these things out.  I’m working on them a piece at a time. I’d love to hear what you think about the website. 

Stay strong!

      You’re so welcome, Gwen. I’m glad to hear that you’ve found it so helpful. Also, glad to know you like the changes! Thank you for reading. -Kristen

  2. Happy New Year, Kristen, and I wish you the very best in 2019!

    You are such an astute and skilled writer of a very difficult and complex topic and I am most grateful for your workbook, “Taking Your Life Back After a Relationship with a Narcissist.” It’s an excellent resource and my therapist loved it when I showed it to her. Your name should be in lights and I do hope recognition comes your way.

    I look forward to joining the private Facebook group and participating as needed within your caring and safe group here. Sending gratitude.

      Hello Vicki! It’s great to see your name. I hope you are doing well, and I’m glad you’re here. I don’t know how to respond to all of what you wrote other than to say thank you. I am so humbled by your very kind words, and, more than that, so glad to know the toolkit has been helpful for you. It means so much to me to know that something positive can come out of my experiences. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. Happy 2019! -Kristen

  3. Thank you for all you do to support victims of narcissistic abuse, Kristen. Your writings have been invaluable to my healing. Kind regards, Sara

      Hello Sara: You are so welcome. I should be the one thanking you. I don’t think I can adequately explain how much it has meant for me to connect with you and others who have had similar experiences. It’s also healing to know that something positive can come from my negative experiences. Thank you for taking the time to comment. I hope you are doing well in your recovery. -Kristen
