So, the political made personal — this just sucks, Ré. At least it sounds like your ex understood at some level that he had issues above and beyond whatever was happening in your marriage. Sadly, I think our narcissistic sociopath of a Cheeto really thinks he is all that, and the problem is all with us. He’s gotten his way for so long that he just assumes that’s the way it should be. He cannot see what he cannot see.
We can only keep writing and speaking out, for as long as we have the energy and the fortitude, and hope it helps to affect some kind of influence. But I can’t say I’m not scared. And if you find that you don’t have the energy or fortitude at some point? I would certainly understand. Not every fight has to be yours. ❤ ❤ ❤
