There seems to be a whole industry which has grown up around the idea of co-dependancy and for a while I had tried to label myself as co-dependant. I realise now, I am nothing of the kind. In fact through everything that has happened, I have realised just how my narcissist had unknowingly bitten off more than he could chew. I had not been the easy “mark” he had anticipated. I had not understood what he was but I had recognised at least some of his techniques. Sadly I had had no real idea why he was behaving that way.
There was a small part of me which had always wanted an intense and complicated relationship. Unfortunately I had had no idea, just how destructive such relationships can be.
As I feel able I will be writing about the journey I have been on, in the hope it may spare others some of my mistakes.
