Q. Hi, I just read your Medium article about healing after a narcissist. We split 1 year ago. I thought I was doing well through the healing process — slowly gaining confidence etc. All was fine until a nice guy came along a few months ago. I was fine until he called me his girlfriend since then I have had a few meltdowns over tiny things (to him) and I just feel incredible rage out of the blue that I can’t seem to control (I wasn’t like this before). Is this normal? How can I control/stop it? (via Tumblr).
A. It sounds like you’re having a pretty confusing time, and having a hard time making sense of what you want or how you’re really feeling.
