I am in a program of recovery for those whose lives have been affected by someone else's drinking, drug use, mental illness. I am new to the experiences of faith and hope and courage, qualities absent for me in proximity to my family. No Contact has been the way to keep safe from diminishing words and actions directed at me. I think I have listened for the last time to how I deserve mistreatment. By holding out for something more wholesome and loving, I have been both banished and demanded to return. I prefer serenity to proximity. I will continue with my program and faith in the best possible outcome, so long as I do my part-- to stalk GOD as if my life depends on it.

  1. And then there are those like us: “It totally did too happen. It was awful and a very big deal, and 100% my fault. Whatever might I do to make things right and earn your good favor. My life, I shall spend trying!” Ha!

  2. I can totally identify with this. It was my own lesson, but I dated narcissists from the age of 15-48 or so. It took a lot of hard work to realize I had no self-esteem. I was very competent and smart, but it’s obviously not the same thing.

    To “loose” the narcissists I had to learn to love myself. I don’t miss the days on them blaming me very every darned thing while I scrambled to read their minds and make them happy

    1. Thank you for your courageous, humble, and fun(in that familiar way-head nodding and chucking the laugh of familiarity) comment “I don’t miss the days of them blaming me very every darned thing while I scrambled to read their minds and make them happy”
