    Hello,
    Great article until you cited Wikipedia. I think if you want to make an impact, Wikipedia, a cite not recognized for credibility is not the place to reference from and it would have led me to read the rest of the article if the definition was used from another source.

    Topic is vital, though.

    Thanks,
    Pamela

    A little over a decade ago, my marriage counselor told me that she thought that my now ex husband was a narcissist and that most narcissists have addictions and she thought that he was addicted to me. That was the first time I realized that there was more to narcissim than someone obsessed with their own looks. I filed for divorce 3 years ago. My 19 year old daughter is no longer talking with her father and my 15 year old son alternates weeks living with me and his father. What is peculiar, is that my ex continues to harass me with frivolous lawsuits. He never calls this a divorce. He sent me this email which to me seems dilutional. At what point do I need to be concerned for my safety or the safety of my son? He is not making any physical threats, just a constant threat of litigious actions. (Been to court 5 times in the last 1 1/2 years post divorce)

    His email, “Today marks three years since you initiated the dissolution of our civil commitment to a lifelong partnership, and it was also the commencement of your legal suit against me.
    Although a civil contract was broken; for our children’s sake I have endured in order to continue to support the entire family on every level.

    From the beginning, despite my own hurting, I have maintained an intentional attitude of repentance, to restore kindness between us, and demonstrate loving forgiveness and grace to our children to restore goodwill, and allow space for you to heal your spirit, reconcile the hurt that seems to have settled in your heart. Are you also willing to repent, forgive and show grace? Can we restore the friendship which began in 1993, as you said in 2015 that you wished we could?

    I will continue to keep you in my prayers as I move forward, with love and a healing, healthy spirit.
    I hope that you will respond in-kind with an attitude of grace and civility, and also express your willingness to collaborate for the purpose of a healthier group of individuals that comprise the family.”

      That’s pretty scary, it sounds like he is saying he’s above the law. Divorce is a lawful and legal action. Set firm boundaries and don’t move from them.
