My ex excitedly told my youngsters how much the price of my property had increased the other day. They of course naively could see no harm in what he has been doing. He is clearly the same relentless being he has always been.
If I know him, he has been sitting there night after night trying to work out, how to increase his retirement assets and he has calculated that somehow getting back with me, would double his retirement funds.
Especially now that our youngsters are virtually independent. I remember I used to dream of it just being the two of us again one day, but never again am I going on that particular rollercoaster.
He was always laying the groundwork to be able to claim that he had had some dreadful lapse and he wanted our life back. He has never stopped stalking me, deliberately pushing my son’s buttons, trying to isolate me from friends and family etc, etc,
There is one thing he has never understood about me. To be honest I never really understood it about myself, until I discovered I was an INFJ. When I am finally done with somebody, I have already ticked all the boxes,.When I am done with you, after years of agonizingly looking for the good, it is like a switch has been turned off in my brain and I become ice cold.
