Excellent post! and something all victims of narcissistic abuse need to do. Just breath, just be, just let go and just know you are where you are supposed to be right now, you have no idea what this experience is preparing you for. What is the point in worrying about tomorrow when we have no idea what it hold, or living in the past when we can do nothing to change it. All you have is right now, this minute, this breath and that is all you need right now. You are no longer a victim, you are a survivor of abuse, you are no longer a victim of abuse. You can feel pain, know that the pain you feel is you healing and it will pass and you will heal. For now just breath.

I think everyone at one time or another thinks, "If I only knew then what I know now." I share my life experiences in hopes a few less people have to look back and want a "do over". Through my Lady Witha Truck blog I have spent 8 years sharing my experiences while being in an abusive relationship with a man I consider to be a narcissist/psychopath and through my other blog, Reimer Reason I share lessons learned throughout the 60 years of my life. No experience is a waste as long as you learn from it and if I can save someone else making the same mistakes I made, then it makes it all worth while. I am an expert on my life, not yours, my opinions are my own, not yours, and I enjoy open respectful communication on most topics. If I don't have an answer I will research it until I do. I have a sweetheart of a dog named Stella, a 4 year old Pitbull, Mastiff cross. I am artistic, enjoy bringing new life to antiques, gardening, refurbishing and repurposing other people's "garbage", reading, writing and being outside in nature. I have a 34 year old son who I am extremely proud of and a 7 yr old granddaughter I don't see near enough. I live on welfare after a lifetime of working full time because I have heart failure. I have gone from being a home owner and landlord to being homeless and living in my car. I continually strive to be the best me that I can be and look at life as a learning experience and an opportunity to learn about other people and myself. Never a dull moment!
