Part of the reason I haven’t posted so long is the very reason for this blog. I was just emotionally exhausted from dealing with the narcissistic father of my child, and occupied with trying to make the most of those windows of relative peace. I didn’t want to write about narcissism then!
But I do need to write. I really need it for my sanity.
It’s so depressing to me that even after the divorce, even after all these years, this man can still be an energy drainer on me. And it’s amazing just how many ways he can find to “get” to me. Just normal situations that most people would never see as an opportunity for control or pot shots are just such opportunities for a narcissist bent on getting a reaction out of you.
And even though I’ve gotten much better at giving him no reaction, I still have to deal with the impact within me.
You think he’d be happy now. He’s got a girlfriend. That makes me happy, because he is more occupied now. But he still plays his game.
And our daughter, unfortunately, still pays for it.
