There is nothing notably heroic or even virtuous about this story. I say this not to minimize the experience or its value. However, it’s a painfully familiar experience. Millions of people before me, tons after me, and even some of my peers have experienced a similar relationship. While the experience is common, “toxic relationships” deal… Continue reading Sweet Creatures V
This series was titled “Sweet Creatures” on behalf of everyone who has crossed my path; everyone. This story wouldn’t have been possible without these people: B – my husband. Thank you for allowing me space to still be an individual, thank you for being an ear, being endlessly supportive, and your faith in me. I… Continue reading BTS: Thank you!
Hey All! Ending the Narcissism series, that was never intended to be a series. I went where I was led. Examining and researching narcissism brought me back to an old reality of which I often peer back on with nostalgia. I romanticize the good times and forgive and forg- (chaos is a mode I understand… Continue reading Narcissism: What’s Next?
Good Morning All! This is the final post on Leaving a Narcissistic Relationship and it’s centered all around you and healing (which I will share more about next week). Being honest with yourself and having awareness surrounding the relationship is crucial. All the hope we’ve blinded ourselves with and the investment can make this very… Continue reading Narcissism: Should I Leave Part IV
Good Morning! Digging a bit deeper today on the topic of Leaving a Narcissistic Relationship. One thing I want to add to this post is that in no way should anyone feel pressured to leave a narcissistic relationship before you/they are ready. When it is ENOUGH you will know. When it becomes too painful to… Continue reading Narcissism: Should I Leave Part III
Today’s post is all about the ugliness that comes from leaving a narcissistic relationship. Jerry was the first one I left. There was no “easy way” for me to do it. I was still in love. Yet, I was exhausted. My tank had been empty for a looooooong time. No reciprocity. I was lonely, depressed,… Continue reading Narcissism: Should I Leave? Part II
Happy Friday, y’all! Today starts the final push into the end of talking about narcissism in relationships, and what better way to do that than to talk about leaving the narcissistic relationship?!?! I am breaking this down into a few posts because there is a lot that goes into leaving this type of… Continue reading Narcissism: Should I Leave?
This is the final post for this subtopic. If this topic resonates with you, I strongly encourage you to pick up Dr. Ramani’s book. She goes into waaaaaay more detail than I can possibly sum up on such a nuanced and personal topic. I have found myself staying with a narcissist before and it’s exhausting.… Continue reading Narcissism: If You Stay With A Narcissist Part II
If you stay. WOW! Good luck? It’s literally the worst. What I can say is to choose or have to stay in a relationship (children, financial reasons, religion, etc.) like this takes a lot of fucking balls. A lot. It’s not a “relationship” for the faint of heart. Quite frankly, it isn’t a real relationship.… Continue reading Narcissism: If You Stay With A Narcissist
I have vacillated back and forth on what to share about what it’s like to be in a relationship with a narcissist. I have shared a lot on my relational experiences (on my website) that encompass what it was like for me to be in such a relationship. It down right blows to be… Continue reading Narcissism – What It Feels Like To Be In A Relationship
