A beautiful IRONY…preparing statements for the first court appearance in your divorce from a covert narcissist while the term gaslighting is being plastered and defined all over prime time news.
Gaslighting: the attempt of one person to overwrite another person’s reality.
Life has been so hard on me…
I don’t have the heart to be hard on myself anymore.
DEVASTATION AND BROKEN HEARTS ARE YOUR FUEL...
Fuckboys and Narcs feed on your suffering. If you find yourself crying on the bathroom floor while the Shithead who claims to love you sleeps peacefully in his bed, that’s your clue. Stand up and get the fuck out. You are so much stronger than you think and you will never find that out until you dare to believe it.
I have made a habit of losing myself in caring for others. If there are no needy people around I will either make myself the needy one or lose myself in my dog. And I don’t mean in a good way; I will work so hard to understand and fulfill the needs of those around me that I utterly lose my independent identity, while I busy myself being what they need.
Just because I came out of your womb, or married you, or gave birth to you, does not mean I lost the right to be ME.
