Let’s face it. If you’ve read any of those great blogs which write about breaking up with a narcissist, you know that it’s always suggested that you go no contact for your own healing and well being. Because once the narcissist is mad, there’s no going back to a good place with him/her. At least, not for any length of time.
But if you’re trying to co-parent with an ex who happens to have narcissist tendencies, or rather, is a narcissist, it’s hard to ride that roller coaster ride safely. Buckle up baby because it’s a bumpy ride and you have to hold on tightly to your heart.
If you’re like me, even though you broke up, there’s that tiny piece of good memory in there about the time you spent together. And because in the past you always gave him the benefit of the doubt, you want to continue because you can’t believe he can be so disconnected. Or because you are afraid of making him mad and having him get even – because his get even is not just getting even, it’s burying you and decimating your soul. So how the heck do you survive co-parenting without losing your mind?
I’m looking for suggestions if you’ve experienced similar issues.
