My intention is to make as much of what I do, such as videos, ebooks, courses, trainings, support groups, etc. donations-based so that cost is never a factor that hinders someone from getting the support and healing that they need.

And please know that any donations made are never expected, but always much appreciated. https://www.patreon.com/DanaMorningstar
Red Flag of a Narcissist #47: The Speed at Which They Move On
Narcissists and other types of emotional manipulators tend to move on at lightning fast speed--as though our relationship (or friendship) meant nothing to them...or even like we never existed.
Targets (aka former partners--or those close to them) of Narcissists often find themselves in a tremendous amount of emotional pain--and also in a tremendous amount of confusion as to how they are so "indifferent" to the hurt and heartache that they've left behind. ...Especially if all signs of their relationship/friendship with the Narcissist is wiped clean: pictures are taken off of Facebook and other social media, and often (within a few weeks) the former partner is replaced by the new partner.
To add insult to injury, the former partner may be seeing the Narcissist's friends and family (or even their own friends and family) congratulating the Narcissist on his (or her) new relationship. This is not only hurtful, but is often a whole other level of crazy making for the former partner as they try to piece together what happened, and try to figure out how to move on after the rug has been pulled out from underneath them.
Disclaimer: I am not a therapist, doctor, attorney, or expert in Narcissism...or anything at all really. If anything, I am a student of life, love, behavior and behavior change.
Professionally, I worked as an advocate for victims of domestic violence at a domestic violence shelter, and currently I am a psychiatric nurse. Personally, I have been through two relationships with Narcissists, and have been able to not only survive those, but have been able to move forward and thrive.
My goal with these videos is to share all of my lessons learned, as well as to start many important conversations about abuse, and recovery with the hopes that together we can provide the clarity, closure, and healing that we all deserve.
Remember: You are not crazy. You are not alone. And yes, you really can heal from this.
