No matter how long you've been on the path of healing and recovery from Narcissistic Abuse, you will continually learn new things to propel you forward. I learned one such thing recently. The power of Meh.
That's right, readers. The power of Meh.
What exactly is "meh" and what does it have to do with Narcissistic Abuse recovery?
According to the Oxford Dictionaries, meh is defined as "expressing a lack of interest or enthusiasm."
So when applying it to your recovery, you can say "meh" about the Narcissist in your life.
But how can you do that after all the Narcissist has done?
It doesn't come easily, readers. As a friend recently pointed out, one aspect of recovery is when you can say "meh" to all the Narcissist's craziness. Saying meh gives you this odd sense of power. Okay, okay.....it sounds silly, I know. But hear me out.
How does it give you power?
When you look at or think of the Narcissist, you can say "meh." When you can show indifference towards the Narcissist or show no signs of interest, you are taking a step towards freedom.
It takes practice. I get that. Your love was real, so it's only natural to be torn between what you feel and what you see before you. The Narcissist shows no feeling or interest towards you, except for what use you provide to them. So why can't you begin down your path of recovery by saying "meh"?
Meh to the Narcissists. Meh to all they do to us. Meh to their antics - the projection, the gaslighting, the lying, the word salad, the manipulation. Meh to their abuse.
Making "meh" a part of your recovery will certainly feel silly at first. But the power of meh will supply you with an inner power. I've taken to saying meh quite often with regards to my NX's tactics. It has helped me get through many difficult nights.
Have you used meh in your recovery? What have been your results? Comment below. And as always, I appreciate you for sharing your stories with me.
