Covert narcississts are a rare breed whom most poeple believe are fine human beings. While they are showing their enhanced false personas, everyone is buying their story and heaping on praise, You are married to this impossible person. Very few outside of the family will ever find out how psychologically toxic the covert narcissist is.
Spouses are victims of narcissistic abuse---veiled threats to ruin your reputation, constant put downs and stunning humiliations, being told that you are at fault (when it is the narcissist who has made egregious mistakes), bout after bout of Vesuvian narcissistic rage. Some spouses feel that they deserve this horrendous treatment because they think little of themselves. They have been emotionally and psychologically pummeled all of their days and don't kow the difference.
Some know that the marriage is a trvesty, that they are suffering from serious symptoms of stress--They are maxed out with chronic headaches, free floating anxiety, hyper-vigilance, chronic insomnia, intestinal discomforts and obsessive self doublt and lack of confidence.
Those who recognize that they can no longer tolerate the emotional, psychological and physiological pain and stress chronically projected upon them, make the decision to sever the relationship through divorce or separation.
As you awaken start with self care each day: getting the sleep and rest you need and deserve, nourishing food, pure water, sleep and rest that you need and deserve.
Spend time with Nature for healing and restoration, expressive writing that expands your consciousness and restores your psycholgical grounding.
Now you move forward in hope, creativity, personal freedom and the full expression of yourself as a unique, precious, extraordinary individual.
