A while back I was fuming because I found out that on top of everything else The Narcissist also screwed me out of a significant amount of money through our divorce. I sat on the information for a while and after the anger and frustration of it all subsided I decided that I was just going to walk away from that situation and not do anything about it.
I realized that feeling like I was relying on The Narcissist for something (even something that was rightfully mine) and even the thought of having to continue interacting with him through some period of time while it all got paid back to me… and especially allowing him to feel like he was taking care of in me in some way, shape or form….. was not worth any sum of money.
At the end of the day I will be okay without that money, and I will be damn happier with continuing to have nothing to do with him. So I’ve let it go.
And in the wise words of Queen Bey in her song “Hurt Yourself”
“And keep your money, I’ve got my own
Keep a bigger smile on my face, being alone
Bad motherfucker, God complex
Motivate your ass call me Malcolm X
Yo operator, or innovator
Fuck you hater, you can’t recreate her no
You’ll never recreate her no”
So while The Narcissist succeeded in screwing me out of some money… he’s the real loser in this situation.
He screwed himself out of the best thing that ever happened to him… and I know he will go on pretending that his life is perfect and whatever girl he ends up with next is perfect… but I know the truth, and that’s worth its weight in GOLD. ❤
