I escaped the gravitational pull of his orbit.”

“In the initial stages, the love-bombing showered our relationship with promises and an intensity that seemed unparalleled. However, as the layers of our connection deepened, the initial warmth began to metamorphose into a chilling atmosphere of control. His constant need for validation cast a shadow over our once-vibrant connection, and the echoes of my independence grew faint.

Amidst the dimming constellations of self-esteem under his relentless critique, I summoned a reservoir of courage. It was time to break free from the gravitational pull of his orbit, a daunting yet necessary step into the cosmic unknown.

The journey to liberate myself from the narcissistic eclipse was an exploration of self-discovery, where I learned to appreciate the brilliance of my stars. In this process of healing and rediscovery, I realized that love, at its core, should be a reciprocal dance—an interstellar ballet free from the looming shadows of control. ” – Elena Bennett
