The Dance of the Narcissist; Delight, Devalue, Degrade, & Discard
Education, understanding, & acceptance is your POWER and FREEDOM
Once you get who and what they are; YOU then make a CHOICE.
Do I want someone in my life who is USING me and has no LOVE or VALUE for me OR do I want myself and my life back?
They do NOT change, they do NOT care about you and eventually they will destroy ALL that is real, good, and valuable in your life.
They are blood sucking vampires, vultures, maggots, parasites looking for a host.
Do you want to be a host?
This is a choice, either you cut your losses, call it a day, and go NC.
You go a few more rounds and let then take MORE.
They usually come back for more even years later. The HOOVER is NOT a compliement.
