Hello! My name is Rachel. I am 35 years old, mother of two lovely children, who are 6 and 3, and I have managed to sustain a marriage to a narcissist for the past 7 years. It has not been easy. I have moved six times in six years, because my husband couldn’t either get along with his co-workers or he felt that there was a better job to be had. Living in a volcanic state, packing and unpacking, nesting and ruffling my feathers, this mama bird became overwhelmed and exhausted. All the while, trying to maintain an attitude of hope and positivity that things would change. However, I faced nothing but disappointment and failure. I have endured a constant tangle of confusion, frustration, and anxiety at the hands of my narcissist husband. I have made a momentous decision and have left him and am pursuing a divorce. This is my journey. If my story can help just one person gain the courage to walk away from an abusive narcissistic relationship, then this whole blog was worth writing.
