I have gotten criticism from those who have accused me of trying to get back at him or just venting my bitterness when, in truth, I could care less about him or what he does.

It takes a long time to heal after you’ve been involved in a narcissistic relationship – don’t let anyone try to tell you anything else.

I feel sorry for her because, you see, whether she believes it or not I have been there, living with a cheater I couldn’t trust.

A lot of attention goes to the narcissist when it comes to research and writing. There are literally so many articles and books about narcissistic husbands (Roughly 75 percent of narcissists are men) that you could not read them all in a lifetime. More are being written every day. Why?

I’ve talked to more than one woman about her relationship with her narcissistic husband and heard her say, “There’s no way out. He will always win and I can’t overcome this so I might as well make the best of it.”

I was talking to some friends the other day, one who thinks she might be dealing with a narcissistic husband and is counseling with him, and the subject of forgiveness came up.“The counselor told me that I needed to forgive him for my own benefit.”

If you’ve been in a relationship with a narcissist for a while you already know that every single thing that happens is your fault. If there is absolutely no way that it can be your fault then it will be his employer’s fault, the pastor’s fault, or even one of the kids’ faults.
