4 Brutally Honest Things Survivors Of Narcissistic Abuse Want To Say To Their Abusers
3. You Taught Me A Lesson I Needed To Learn
You may well believe that you had the last laugh in our relationship, that there is nothing that I could possibly take from the time I spent with you.
Let me tell you now that you are wrong.
You may have used me without a second thought to my wellbeing, and you may not care how I am now, but you should know that what you did to me has taught me huge amounts.
You and your spiteful behavior were life lessons that I am grateful for. I do not thank you for this; I thank myself for being able to see the meaning in your malevolent ways and to learn from them that which I needed to learn.
4. I Pity You
The only feeling I have left for you now is one of pity. It is sad to think that you will never know what it feels like to love, to feel compassion, or even to truly feel close to another living being.
I wish you were able to understand what it is you lack, but I doubt you ever will. It’s not simply the love for others, but that which you feel towards yourself too; I don’t think you even experience this.
I cannot imagine a world in which there is no love, but this is precisely what you must be living in. While others may show you love, you cannot feel its effects, nor bask in its warmth and beauty.
For all this, I can only have pity for you.
