@Neekee20 I am dumbstruck that we can believe in and grieve for an ideal relationship completed fabricated by our imagination. Stockholm Syndrome. The abuser becomes the hero. Amazing what brains do to cope.

Yes. At least 12 people I've known, dated, befriended, worked for, etc I would consider malignant narcissists. Including my parents. My advice? Get out while you can. They never get better, and they will never care about you. Put simply, their brains are Not capable of feeling empathy.

@andine I want to share with you what my therapist shared with me. She told me not to be so hard on myself because my feelings will change from day to day. This I found couldn't be more true. There are moments when I remember the good times and I yearn for them back. Other times, I get super angry and want to tell him off....other times I feel I "dodged a bullet" by breaking off the engagement ....and on and please ....take it from me and show yourself grace. We are only human my friend. xo
