Grieving the Illusion: Unraveling the Persona from the Reality"


The journey through grief in the wake of emotional abuse often leads to mourning different facets of a complex relationship: the person you thought they were, the persona created for you, and then realising who they truly are.

Grieving the Past Present & Future

During the cycles of abuse, you might have glimpsed the reality behind the facade they presented. Yet, they would swiftly revert to the idealisation stage, further deepening the emotional bond in the relationship. Now, in the wake of this journey, you grieve the past that encompassed the intricately constructed persona.


The present, where you find yourself, isn't where you envisioned being. 


And the future, a falsified creation nurtured together, now feels like an empty space – perhaps observing someone else stepping into the life you had crafted together.


In my book and guided meditation, I've endeavoured to encapsulate the complexities of this journey. The aim is to gently guide you through the grieving process, from the persona you once believed into the reality that is now coming to light.
