Hi everyone ….. some of you may remember that I was married to a man with NPD for 40 years …. I divorced him 12 years ago after the kids were no longer at home. After getting passed that point where I felt “I hate you, I’d like to cut your mouth off,” and all those things we think about when we’re in the midst of a divorce, we do fine when in the company of our kids and their spouses. I moved this passed weekend and all my kids and the 2 that are married had their spouses with them all pitched in to help. While we were in the midst of the move, in walks my X husband. He came to help hook up all the electronic equipment. I was not really surprised because it made him look good and again placed him in the center of the family (or so he thought). Oh, he was soooooo very nice to everyone, including me. I don’t know how much the kids perceive this, but it’s as if you’re watching a shadow of a person going through his “nice” behavior ….. all to make everyone thing how wonderful he is.
As my therapist once told me, narcissists don’t change ….. it’s never their problem, always someone elses.
And, may I add …… never, ever, trust one ….. a wolf in sheeps clothing.
