Healing from narcissistic abuse is by far the most painful experience of my life. Because like the gentleman said, it’s about someone with normal emotions trying to wrap their head around these unspeakable things someone without normal emotions has done.

It’s the pain of extreme and extensive cognitive dissonance, and it will only get better when you reach the place where you stop trying to figure it out.

Because you won’t.

You can’t.

There is no way to find reason or logic in it. They do because they can. To them, it seems normal. They are the center of the universe and their needs must be met.

If people are destroyed along the way, its acceptable, because they were just doing what they needed to do.

I’m sorry. ☹

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
