Quote on abuse: Survivors of any and all abuse become very good at anticipating moods of others, looks, actions, all of it in an effort to survive. Believing that if we can be agreeable, be compliant and loving, do things how they want, that we will be safe. This becomes our way of live." - Darlene Ouimet. www.HealthyPlace.com
Nothing is worse than being in a relationship with someone that is using you for their own gains, emotionally abusing you, and all the while professing their love for you to the world. Only to later leave you and paint you as the villain .. loving a narcissist sucks.
