I am a survivor

I am starting this blog as a way to help myself and others who are victims of evil ex's. Mine was a classic narcissist. I was married for 10 years and together a total of 11. During that time, he took every opportunity to devalue, degrade, humiliate, abuse, and destroy me. I was lucky to survive.

His true colors surfaced about 1 year into our relationship. Shortly before our marriage, his venom started to show. Why then did I marry him? Because my self esteem was so low, I thought I was lucky to have him. He told me I was lucky to have him. I believed him.

I met Jason (not his real name) shortly after the death of my first husband. I was at a weak point in my life, lonely, confused, and vulnerable. Like most predators, I was a prime target.
He wined me, dined me, spoiled me, complemented me, and I thought loved me. I was wrong.
