Don’t Judge Me I’m Divorcing a Narcissist

Most people thought I was getting a divorce. That’s a thing where your life blows up and people have a lot to say about it. Not sure why.

And not in the sense, that this trendy word is being overly exercised. As if every selfish, arrogant, jerk (I’d really like to use another word) has a narcissistic personality disorder. Like in the sense my husband was actually diagnosed by a psychologist as having this serious empathy lacking affliction.

But the narcissist is a charming fantasy. For this reason, they exist in our minds only.

But you REALLY shouldn’t judge people who are leaving individuals who are financially and emotionally abusive. Not to mention the ones who end up being physically abusive.
