I congratulate you! It takes a whole lot of strength and courage to get through what these types of people will do to you. To rebuild life after a relationship like this is no small feat.

Relationships and break ups with Covert Narcissists are the absolute worst, because it makes you feel crazy, and question your ability to perceive yourself and everything, clearly. They use every imperfection you have against you, and expand upon them as being the reason they are abusing you, and why the relationship is so hard for you to take, with someone as “amazing” as they are. And, of course, these are the major con artists of communities, where everyone around you is susceptible to believing the Narcissist as well, which makes you look unstable, desperate, spoiled, over-sensitive, or worse, insane.

It is wonderful you had the community and self-preservation instinct to know what was up or down, get away, and refocus your energy and purpose on yourself and your path.
