I began blogging exactly one year ago today.
This was my very first post that appears below.
The monumental event that I needed for me to start sharing my experiences with a Narcissist, had happened.
The N was removed from my surroundings…or as my British friends would say, “he was made redundant!” Oh happy day. I marked my calendar with the words….”The VERY best thing in the whole world has happened.!!”
Indeed it had…because I realized that one of my interests that I had put aside while I ‘entertained the N’ was writing.
I don’t know if I’m that good at it, but I enjoy it. At least I am able to share with people who have been in similar relatioNships.
That’s very rewarding. My thanks to all who read and comment on my blog re: Narcissism and the normal stuff too.
These days the normal stuff is much more fun to write about.
I never dreamed when I wrote my posts on the subject of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, especially “Gaslighting: A Narcissist’s Game” and “Narcissistic Curtain Calls” that they would attract so many readers.
That’s been a boost to my sagging self-esteem. (Sagging…that’s a dreadful word isn’t it?!)
It was/is my prayer that these posts are a comfort to all who read them.
Enjoy this trip down ‘memory lane’ with a view of my first post, once again.
(If you check out the cartoon closely, you’ll see that it matches the post perfectly.)
“Word salad” is something you have to weed your way through in talking with a narcissist. Correction, you never really talk with or to a narcissist; they talk…or lie, and you do all the listening. (Pity you, if you try to interject a thought that doesn’t have anything to do with them.) As their monologue continues, you wish that you had gotten your “word salad” with extra dressing…because it’s going to take more to get through the lies he’s dishing out on your plate. “Waiter! More dressing and while you’re at it…some croutons please!”
