Hello, Love

A Narcissist Left Me With Illusionary Grief

He existed but the person I loved was extinct.

I’m out with the girls and a friend dismisses another friend’s pain.

“What’s the big deal?” she asks. “She’s the one who left him.”

“Just because someone chooses to leave,” I say. “Doesn’t mean there isn’t grief.”



Love changes us. Love makes us human.
