The Day I Learned What a Narcissist Was Changed My Life by Laurie Balles Simpson
I was 35, sitting on Stacey's couch. Stacey was my therapist.
I was an empty shell of a woman, getting a divorce and there to find out how and why. What I did know was this was not the first time I felt this way – and the common denominator was me.
Through our sessions I learned about codependency, selflessness vs. self-worth and how selfish wasn't a bad word after all. That day, Stacey introduced me to narcissism, as if she knew all along that it was a common denominator that I hadn't considered.
I had been a narcissist's perfect catch. I learned about a narcissist's:
- inability to empathize
- gas lighting
- ambient abuse
- narcissistic supply
My understanding became tangible.
It's been six years since I've seen Stacey. She changed my life that day and so did I.
