One of the main reasons people stay in toxic narcissistic relationships for so long is that many people have no way of going out into the world alone.
Financial abuse is one of the major ways that narcissist keeps their partners close to them.
When a narcissist can control their partner's wallet, it can make it difficult for them to find a safe place.
Financial Abuse & The Narcissist
Narcissists are scum. This may not be the best way to start an article, as it may seem like there is hatred or anger…
This is not too dissimilar to imprisonment but in a more subtle way.
Many people want to leave their partner, but they don’t have a place to stay.
They may not have family, they may not have a community, and they may have NO ONE to really rely on.
Fortunately, because I am a backpacker and have lived a very rugged, vagrant, and vagabond life, I have learned of ways that one can get away and survive when you have NO MONEY.
This is no hyperbole…you can find a way out even if you have no money.
Allow me to explain.
Work Exchange Can Help You Leave Your Narcissist
There are two ways to find a place to stay and get away from your narcissist ASAP.
The first way will be hostels, and the second way will be through something called work exchange.
#1 — Hostels
Hostels are a great place to find FREE accommodation, breakfast, and even dinner.
Many hostels operate by offering free accommodation and food to those who work in their hostel.
