Summary

Love satisfies a basic human need for us to be close to and supported by a significant other. We are happier, healthier, and even live longer when we have strong, intimate bonds with other people. Relationships with romantic partners are a primary source of the close bonds we need to thrive. Being part of a healthy love relationship has been shown to increase longevity and improve mental well-being.

On the other hand, being at the receiving end of emotional abuse has the opposite effect. The long-term effects from being in a constant fight-or-flight state subtracts years from one's life, and often leads to complete dysfunction and, sadly, suicidal tendencies.

Anyone who is trying to leave an abusive relationship needs to impose very specific tactics in order to break away, heal, and move on towards a better life. Narcissists and emotional manipulators will do anything to get back in. While their unethical behavior should serve as a reminder of why one is enforcing No Contact in the first place, it's often hard to do when one is constantly bombarded with calls, emails, texts, social media notifications, and even in-person visits.

How to Do No Contact like a Boss explains the reasons for going No Contact and takes the listener through the initial planning stages, exit strategies, the moment of No Contact, what to expect in the days that follow, and how to deal with a persistent and/or abusive ex who refuses to respect one's request for No Contact. Also included are alternative healing methods that address what traditional therapy often overlooks.

Surprised how Positive this book is ♡

Full of day to day help I needed and also gave me the strenght and knowledge to do what I needed to do. I will be forever grateful for this book. I would highly recommend this book. It was full of empathy and loving advice from someone who I can tell has been through exactly what I have. I no longer feel so alone and am supplied with a plan of action at last. Namaste

Very helpful. I dont feel so alone anymore.<br />

The information in this audiobook was absolutely invaluable to my situation. Just knowing there are others experiencing this same thing, makes me feel less pathetic. :) (Although my narc would insist that Im still just as pathetic...oh and unworthy of him...bleh!! Enough!!!)

Thankyou Kim thankyou Audible/Amazon

This book has helped me to come through the darkest point in my 39 years so far. I never felt a book could help me so much. I can't believe ghow shocking it is toitoi hear stories just exactly Like my own experience. I felt so alone and helpless until this book .This book is written in such a organized fashion that it is as if the writer is next to you knowing the order in which your experience left you feeling from moment to moment. It basso many valuable resources and so much guiudznce on how to rebuild from tghe pain and hurt you suffered. This is book is wriiten so it is easy to understand, without comp!icated theories. This book is the vest I've read on toxic relationships and I've read a dozen. It is written and meant to use throughout your recovery,so you can go back to chapters and use as a tool. Also I must add the narrator is great and is not boring or annoying. The narrator is a perfect match for the material. Thankyou for this book Kim!!!

helpful, informative, comprehensive

Who was your favorite character and why?

n/a

Any additional comments?

When I got this book I had already gone no contact. I was having trouble with understanding the whys of what happened in my life and trouble with my decision to walk away. This really did a good job explaining why and how not everyone is capable of having the same kind of relationship that you are and how and why it's important to let go. I loved how many facts she put in and ways to cope.

Spot On

I couldn't put what I have been through in words because it has been so difficult to articulate.... but she did. Just hearing it began the healing process. I am not alone.

This book if Phenomenal

Please read this book in order to understand why you had gone through... under the spell of a narcissistic partner... why it hurt so much when you stop or wants to break away from...and the more important for me...understanding where the narcissistic abuser does things (by this I understood was nothing to do with me) and how the narcissistic abuser can never have a healthy relationship with anyone in this planet and will never recuperate either...a

Useful although limited BPD coverage

Really good guide and information. As a survivor or a few relationships with Women with Borderline personality disorder I can say that a lot of the descriptions of why I stayed too long were really spot on. Early on the author mentions that Narcissist would be used as a single term for other personality disorders including BPD. I felt this was an over generalization and the book could have been 5 stars and more applicable to borderline encounters by calling out the differences more often.
