I was at a stand still in my life with having both my father and husband (both Narcs)

"I was at a stand still in my life with having both my father and husband (both Narcs) leaving my life at the same time. My husband a cerebral and my father a somatic. They both had their birthdays the same week then they just packed and left abandoning us both. Both separate from each other but giving the same excuse of still loving us but not being able to live with us. It was so strange! I thought it was just 1 midlife crisis triggering another leaving my mother and I floundering. We just were not mentally and emotionally equipped or ready to deal with such a thing happening. We have been stuck in a state of denial making excuses for our significant others life choices. By nature I am a researcher and that is how I found Dr. Sam Vaknin. His insights into every bit of Narcissistic behavior is so spot on that I am still in a bit of shock. With the clarity of his words my life and the people therein were laid out plainly before me so that I could understand what was going on. With every page I read and re-read a weight is lifted off of me that I did not realize was there. I am able to cope and rectify my situation and by extension help my mother as well. Now both my mother and I are still in denial and still holding out hope that these men in our lives are able to be fixed, but at least I know that in time we will be able to move past that point and salvage our lives and who know, have better ones! I think that part of dealing with the abandonment by a Narc is educating yourself. So I want to thank Sam Vaknin for opening our eyes so that we can at least see the path before us instead of floundering in the dark not knowing how to move on or why we have to. My heart goes out to everyone who knows this pain, because it is REAL pain. I wish everyone well and suggest this book to anyone who wishes to understand the Narcissist in their life."
