2. No Contact Sets a Healthy Boundary. It’s NOT the Silent Treatment.

3. Remove tracking from your devices. Block your toxic parents’ email, phone, and social media. CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS.

4. Prepare simple statements for encountering enablers, flying monkeys, and your abuser.

5. TRAUMA BOND confuses abuse for love-causing GUILT, SHAME, & LONGING. It’s chemical, NOT FAILURE.

7. Get Support. Trauma-informed therapists & medication can make your transition more manageable.

“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone.”

8. It Gets Better. Taking brave, positive action is HARD and WORTH IT.
