for your personal benefit.run,,,,,The tragic fallout of the narcissistic relationship (whether with man, woman or beast) is that it leaves a person doubting himself. Self-doubt is a psychological cancer that takes you over slowly and insidiously and creeps into all areas of your life—parenting, career, friendships, day-to-day decision making. When that self-doubt becomes your new normal, and when you are destroying yourself in the process of trying to please an unpleasable partner—it may be time to take stock.
Does the relationship feel like a one-way street?
Do I feel like an audience to the show called “her life”?
Does the relationship feel like a disconnected stage set?
If there is sex does it feel obligatory and disconnected (for either of you)?
Do you look forward to your future together?
