Anxiety after cutting off the narc
« on: July 26, 2021, 11:17:52 AM »
I know I did the right thing but cutting of this narcissist but why does it feel so crappy if itís the right thing to do? At the very least, he wasnít giving me what I want, and I was sick of being buddy girl. I mean, no guy will commit to someone willing to just take friendship. I know heís narcissistic, I just hate how I look like the crazy one. He pushes buttons, so I react and everyone thinks heís such a great guy so surely it must be me! I had to take a mental day today because I really didnít sleep that good. He was definitely emotionally abusive, and an alcoholic. People donít see how he acts most of the time, and his outbursts. But heís the one who is hurt, and when I am hurt he gets angry or resentful. I donít feel sorry for him. I said what I had to say, so if you canít handle the truth then oh well! I grew up with an alcoholic dad, and Iím not dealing with what my mom did. My dad was also narcissistic, so Iím gathering I feel this is normal behavior but I know itís not. Itís just what I witnessed.

I'm so sorry you're dealing with this. It's normal to feel crappy after ending any relationship...even a bad one. It's great that you realized the need for a mental health day, I hope that you did something extra nice for yourself!
