The stages of healing-Victim, Survivor, Thriver

For those of you healing from child abuse (narcissistic abuse), this video includes the differences between each healing stage, as listed by Barbara Harris & Charles Whitfield. I found this very useful in my own healing. I am luckily mostly thriving now, with the exception of a few hiccups, here and there. Where do you see yourself on your journey of recovery?

If you find this video useful in any way, then please share on social media ♥

Love Athina ♥

    1. You are very welcome! Be optimistic..It took me 8 years to get to where I am today..and I was lucky in meeting my husband..If I hadn’t met him, things might have been a lot tougher in my recovery..Sometimes it takes being around a healthy person a lot, to realise that you are acting a certain way. Hugs ❤
