It has been 8 days since the narcissist tried to contact me. I have removed them from my social media and have no plans to answer any texts from them. I know that since they live close by and relatively associated thru family friends etc, I will run into them from time to time and I will just have to deal with it at that time.
But I feel good that I am slowly learning, thru study, the terms for the treatment I have received thru the years of knowing them and trying to befriend them.
They know no emotion such as remorse or empathy for anyone.
They are like an animal searching for prey. Well, no, that isnt true really because an animal instinct is just to eat for survival. A Narcissist instinct is to eat away at the soul and psyche of the supply until they have nothing left.
The thing they didnt take from me was the love and support of my real friends and my spouse who supports me thru all.
They didnt take away my sympathy and empathy and longing to be good to others.
And they didnt get from me any more fuel to keep them going.
I feel extremely sorry for anyone in this persons life, family, friends, etc who has to take it from me.
In better news, I FINALLY found a good pair of walking shoes.
After trying Brooks, Asics and a pair of New Balance fresh foam, I went back to the basic NB just like the last pair I bought.
I found good support and comfort, good spring and a good feel to these shoes and the only reason I needed to replace my last pair was because I stepped on some type of tar or cement that stuck to the shoe and when it was taken off it wore the tread off the toe of the shoe, not only wearing a hole thru the bottom but making it slick on surfaces.
But I am happy with my new pair and cant wait for the rain to finally leave Ky so that I can actually try them at the track.
