He did not ever request me as a friend but I can still see his social media page. I sat in silanece listening on the other end of the phone as the words haled my way, “don’t you have a life? He always wanted me to listen to him, value and appreciate when I felt he did neither of them for me.
I tried to block him before but unblocked him shortly thereafter, telling myself that I am stronger than that. He was slowly making me resent him and I felt it was one sided.
Kim Reply Moving on from a narcissistic partner is possible but moving on from a narcissistic mother is not so easy, personally I am not sure if it’s at all possible due to the life long emotional black mail the “when I am gone” “you will regret it” mentality.
They speak lies and twist your every single word and action.
Thanks Rick, Reply Very true informative advice given here. I need to stop focusing on the narc and focus on healing and stop obsessing about narcissism on the internet. I have blocked him from my phone, it has been 1 one week since phone contact and two weeks since physical contact. I just want to get strong enough delete him from social media and not even care… i can’t seem to pull the energy together to believe any thoughts beyond nothing, can’t move, don’t care. but no energy to pick myself up and do something different. So now i have to learn how to live again and pick up the pieces from where i left off. I feel like after this debut reading of the high points I will pursue this path to a recovery where I was falling deeper and deeper into a pit. He threatens to distort my children’s lives or Detroit something I love to get what he wants. I felt like I never met his expectations and he always had these boxes that needed to be ticked for him to move in with me and be a family with my daughter from another relationship.
Since I don’t know anything about your background, the best first step would be to consider enrollment in the Break Free Bootcamp. Time and hard work on your part will begin to put things into perspective.By making work for me and telling me how i am doing it wrong or acting like a child or my methods are like a crazy person. I just was amazed when i found out there was a name for this behavior!Reply Hi Shelley, I’m sorry to learn of your struggles.You have raw, bloody emotional wounds and need to handle yourself with care, as you would for any other wounded person.Reply He always argues that my self esteem is soooo low and that he is always trying to raise it. I too have endured the wild ride of being with a narcissistic partner(s) in life.Only it took me many many years and relationships to see this for what it really was.My dad had a degree in Psychology and controlled everyone in my family with his narcissistic traits.I now have a girlfriend in jail that seems such a beautiful heart loving person but!!!!! In the beginning of the relationship everything was perfect because he was everything that i wanted in a man (or so i thought) i am far from perfect this i know, But he was the kind of person that wanted me all to himself including away from my kids and accused me of sleeping around and entertaining men when i knew that wasn’t true.It just seems I can never get away from it and everyone thinks this man is such a good one, even my own family doesn’t realize the detriment and pain it has caused us.I will continue to get support and figure out why I allow such people into my circle.
