Always forgive your enemies –
nothing annoys them so much.
– Oscar Wilde
Moving on after leaving a narcissist is not always the easiest thing to do. For many of us who have had the unfortunate experience of being with them, the sheer idea of moving on after all the harm, chaos, and hurt they put us through seems like they are getting off scot-free.
The idea that they hurt us and get away with it can drive many of us INSANE.
And believe me, I know.
I wholly understand where some of you are coming from.
There is also the unfortunate truth that many of us also become, so trauma bonded to these parasites that moving on, EVEN WHEN IT IS GOOD FOR US, also seems unbearable.
We know with every fiber of our being that they are not the ones for us.
Our happiness, gone.
Our beauty, faded.
And ourselves, no longer in the picture.
Moving on, as so many people champion, is not that easy. But just because I say it is not easy does not mean it is impossible.
This trauma bond can be broken. The rage and anger you feel can be quenched.
And who you are can go back to who you were.
And you know what…you can become so much better BECAUSE of being with these parasites.
Quick Note: I call narcissist parasites because they are. I am not name-calling. I am not denigrating the. Check out my article, “Narcissists Are Parasites,” to get a better understanding of what I mean. They feed on people’s lives just so they can survive. If that is not a parasite, I don’t know what is.
