This couldnt be more spot on for My Ex(well actually a few ex's of mine) when any person has to belittle there Ex in anyway they're just Cowards that have to hide behind their web of lies cause they dont want the world to find just what kind of person they really are!If you dont want people to think less of you then don't behave in a way that they would have a reason to!
my narcissistic mother said these exact one liners to me all. the. time. -but her favorite back stabbing comments were ....drum roll please... "she's my touchy one", "I can't believe that you are MY daughter" and "I wish you would just dry up and blow away!"-my narcissistic mother. no contact.
I miss who I thought he was prior to learning he was a narcissistic pathological liar... OMG, soo true... My first love, dated him 5 yrs and then 20 yrs later I realize what he really was and still is!
