I have joined this community today in a bid to share my experience of how it was living with a narcissistic partner for many years, until I finally got the strength to get out of this destructive relationship. However, he changed his ways and is trying to get back to me in all ways possible, he is always asking our five year old what am I doing, he is trying to set all these opportunities for me and being super super nice. I know it is all a game, but currently I cannot escape having regular meetings with him as we are home schooling our kid jointly.
I am sometimes really angry and I want him to leave me alone and for him to stop lying and feigning this interest in me, but knowing that he has NPD I understand how his mind works (a bit) . He values me now as I discarded him. If I were to make a mistake and go back to him again, as I did many times before, he would be exactly the same, even worse. It is just that I need to vent these things out, and I don’t want to bother my friends and family with it. Thank you very much for your time if you are reading this, and any comments are appreciated.
