Slept well, woke up early, felt a need to find a me-specific message in the Bible, read a bit, found it, feeling strong today.
So, 8 days after I escaped, and 1 day after my birthday, I got this message from Narc. He has never celebrated Christmas with me, much less even remembered my birthday. The last gift I got was about 4 years ago (perfume that his mother wears) and a card that wasn’t even taken out the plastic wrapping, never mind with a message inside. He gave these to me in the morning, and then disappeared into his workshop all day to drink alone and probably speak to other people on his precious phone, which is attached to his hip like a permanent fixture.
So, after ignoring his calls (about 3 or 4 of them), this is the message I got (interesting to note “STILL help you with your credit card – ja right!)
I am grateful to be in a place of safety and strength, with the knowledge to understand that this is NOT REAL. He was probably just bored. He hates to be alone. If he decides to honour the debt, ie damages he has left me with, then great. If not, I am happy to walk away from it. I will certainly not mention this again to him, never mind answer his pathetic calls.
Me? I’m happy to be “alone”….away from this kind of manipulation. I am not under any false impression that my new journey will be easy, but I am 100% certain that it has begun, and will continue day by day.
Fare thee well, 2015. Bring on the new.
