After the Discard: The Other Woman

This post has really helped me as I can relate to every single word. Every woman (or man) dealing with a narcissistic ex should follow Kim Saeed. Recovering from abuse seems to be a daily trial for me, and as I lapsed today – I turned to her blog for support. Be reassured that it’s not you, and the new supply he cheated on you with – will not last.

Being discarded by a Narcissist is one of the most painful experiences victims endure…well, after the heart-wrenching devalue phase.  It’s like icing on an insidious, poisonous cake for which only Narcissists hold the recipe.

The Discard

After being discarded, you believe it’s your fault.  You obsess over whether you could have done things differently.  You languish over your abuser, brooding over whether there’s a chance to win him back and prove your worth.

That’s precisely what he wants.

    Exactly. I am still struggling with the perspective – and hopefully I’ll be where you are someday in the outlook. Whether male or female we deserve to be treated with respect. The trouble is that no one is 100% evil, and I keep remembering the times when he was gentle and nice, my best friend. It makes betrayal hurt all the more. I am reading “Why does he do that” right now, and it’s really helping. It’s a great book looking into abusive men; why they do what they do and their personalities. It is giving me closure I haven’t been able to get through him. Hope you’re doing well in your own recovery.
