I think it might help to think of him as not being normal. He – like all abusers- don’t look at life is a normal way. They have a skewed version of reality. They aren’t kind, or honest, or selfless. They are chronically selfish, but try to pretend they aren’t!
Here’s to a normal life with normal people… X
(PS : My ex used to text me after I told him to only text about the kids- but the first line was some fake concern about the kids, the next lines were about wanting furniture, money etc…. He used my child as a lead-in. )
