Some of the things he has done do sound a bit manipulative. I had to stay off social media for a while until I was strong enough to unfriend and block him and people connected to him.

It is really hard when you miss them even though the rational side of you knows that he was, as you say, a liar, a cheat and a controlling manipulator. On the forum people always mention trauma bonding, maybe you could look it up.

You are doing really well and this is a hard time so try to be kind on yourself.
