I know the Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) very well: from my mother and my ex-husband. During my childhood I always felt it was me who was not alright. That was a difficult journey until I found myself. I assume my father had a narcissistic mother too, and that’s why he struggled with depression and tooked his own life when I was just two.
Later the father of my two younger children began showing signs of NPD, and first I thought the problem was with me again. It was a very hard time for me and my little babies. A divorce from a narcissist is like going trough hell. For six years I had to appear in court and I was always afraid of losing my children. Narcissists are great speakers and they want to gain the mastery absolutely. They fight their heart out! So I had a lot of emotional distress every day for all these years. I had to spend lot of money for lawyer and court fees. One can’t imagine that!
What a long and uncomfortable soul journey for each of us!
But now we are free and happy.
Me and my children learned a lot about ourselves, and so we got a huge treasure of experience. We are sure we are very tough and we do not need a lot of things to be a lucky, small family.
That makes us feel like getting a huge profit. ❤ ❤ ❤
