You’ve been split from your narcissistic partner and are starting to feel like you just might survive this horrible experience. You have probably not had contact with him for a while but you still think about him, it still hurts but you don’t cry every day and you can feel your old self coming back.
He calls, or shows up out of the blue. He tells you every thing you longed to hear for so long. He is sorry, so sorry, he cries and looks so remorseful. Then he does something totally out of character; he takes full responsibility for his actions; he admits he was wrong to be unfaithful, to hit you or verbally assault you. He says he has realized you are the woman he wants for the rest of his life. He begs for another chance and looks you right in the eye with tears streaming down his face. He looks so vulnerable and you feel your resolve weakening and your love and compassion returning. You go to him and he holds you like you are his life line; like he’ll never let you go
Then the two of you are both crying and you hold each other for a long time and maybe you say, “You really hurt me”.
Him, “sshhhh Baby. I’m so sorry I’ll never hurt you again. I love you, please don’t cry.”
You’re crying harder, all the pain and loneliness seems to be spilling from your body, “I love you too.”
Him, “Can you ever forgive me?”
You, “Of course but it’s going to take time”
Him, “Take all the time you need, as long as you give me the chance to prove my love for you; as long as you are willing to give me a 2nd chance. I promise you won’t regret it”.
This is what you’ve dreamed of for months; your heart is pounding out of your chest, your knees feel weak, and your heart is full of love for this man. He loves YOU!!
He kisses you softly, kisses the tears from your cheeks, brushes the hair from your eyes and stares deep into your soul pleading with his eyes. He looks like a little boy, so innocent and he says he should have known better than to think he could ever be happy without you. And as his voice chokes with emotion again he admits, “He’s never loved anyone like he loves you, maybe it scared him at first but he’s realized how wrong he was to push you away.”.
He whispers in your ear, “Will you marry me?”
You hold him and both of you are crying and laughing at the same time.
He must be telling the truth; why would he bother to apologize and admit to everything he ever did wrong if he doesn’t have full intentions of changing?. People don’t admit they were wrong if they have no plans to change. He’s so humble, so remorseful, so contrite and he said he still LOVES YOU!!! YOU! Only you!
But that little voice in your gut is screaming Run!!! You tell it to “shut up!!”,you don’t want to hear it. It’s just nervous excitement because this so unexpected.
You never thought you’d hear him say all those wonderful things. You aren’t going to let anything put a damper on how wonderful and alive you feel.
The narcissist has just made his curtain call.
