Learning How to Leave: A Practical Guide To Stepping Away From Toxic & Narcissistic Relationships by Michael Padraig-Acton is a powerful and thought-provoking read.
Narcissists thrive on isolating their ‘victim’, cutting them off from the life they could be living, and
making them so dependent that they feel unable to survive outside of the toxic relationship. This book
challenges the reader to refuse to accept the toxic life any longer. To choose a worthier existence.
Because we all live the lives we accept for ourselves.
“A narcissist is only done with you when they’re done. For those in a relationship with a
narcissist, the most powerful step you can take now is to learn how to leave.”
– Michael Padraig Acton.
