An unresolved past never goes away until you find the courage to let go of all the pain and accept that there’s nothing you can do to change the past. What’s happened has happened and what’s done is done.
I'm not crazy, I was abused. I'm not shy, I'm protecting myself. I'm not bitter, I'm speaking the truth. I'm not hanging onto the past, I've been damaged. I'm not delusional, I lived a nightmare. I'm not weak, I was trusting. I'm not giving up, I'm healing. I'm not incapable of love, I'm giving. I'm not alone. I see you all here. I'm fighting this. (Rene Smith)
It looks to most people like the narcissist is a caring, even loving person; but those who have come to know the being, even just a little, realize that there is nothing there. That caring person is an imposter.
