[Stop Spinning, Start Breathing now includes a three-chapter excerpt from Zari Ballard's book When Love Is a Lie]

You never have to wait until your relationship with a narcissistic or toxic, emotionally abusive partner is over to begin working on your recovery. Spinning, Start Breathing, author Zari Ballard's workbook-style companion to her first book, When Love Is a Lie, will guide you towards recovery whether you're in the relationship or out of it, maintaining "No Contact" or struggling with it, suffering through a narcissist's silent treatment or fighting off the narcissist's inevitable hoover. At no time is it ever too early or too late to address the fragility of our own mental health. The time to mentally break free from a narcissistic or sociopathic partner is now!

This interactive workbook provides a variety of thought-provoking questions and exercises that will help you put your relationship with the narcissist in its proper perspective. Zari understands that the biggest obstacle to leaving an emotionally abusive relationship is the fact that our memories can keep us addicted to the nonsense. We develop a relationship amnesia that becomes an agonizing codependency that inadvertently causes us to become the narcissist's enabler. We cling to the impossible, hoping that the relationship will get better or that the narcissist can be fixed or that, realizing the error of his ways, the narcissist will change on his own. This is a false hope orchestrated by the narcissist himself and, if we allow it, he will instigate our suffering until the end of time. The truth is that a narcissist only returns to a relationship again and again to ensure that the loving partner never recovers from the pain he has caused and for this reason alone, recovery must - and can - start from any point in your journey today.

Whether you're in the relationship or out of it, this narcissist abuse recovery workbook paints a clear, no-holds-barred picture of the toxic relationship that develops whenever we love a narcissistic partner. This book will give you hope and empower you to take back your life! You can learn to make the right choices and to come to terms with your conflicting beliefs about the person that is hurting you. You can learn to manage the memories so that what you remember is the reality and not the fantasy. Once you do this, you will find yourself letting go with much less sadness....and your life will begin to make miraculous changes.
