The narcissist makes a divorce a battleground and you are the enemy.
Male or female, partner, spouse or parent, being the victim of a dysfunctional person is one of life’s most difficult tasks. You are not to blame and there is help. You are not alone. Narcissism is a personality disorder but there is also acquired situational narcissism. A victim can be from an upscale life or not. Abuse strikes everyone.
Divorcing a narcissist
Divorcing a narcissist with a narcissistic personality disorder is probably not more pervasive than before but milder forms of narcissism are more common. The people who exhibit narcissistic traits can be your Facebook poster friend or your spouse and anyone in between. It may be impossible to completely avoid narcissism but you should not subject yourself to the pain of being the continual victim of an abuser.
