When you’re divorcing a narcissist, every absurdity becomes a reality since they are skillful liars and manipulators. Family and friends you thought would offer support turn against you due to lies from your narcissist spouse. You think you can handle all this – and protect your children too.
Do you assert your needs in your relationship, or do you always give in to your partner? Are you continually trying to please your partner? Do you only feel good about yourself when you make your partner feel good? If so, you may be in a co-dependent relationship.
Have you always felt out of place in your own family? Did you often feel it was your job to keep your parents happy – while your own needs were ignored? If this sounds familiar to you, call me for a consultation so that we can work together to resolve the issues that growing up with narcissistic parents can cause.
