How do you not lose your mind?

How do you not lose your mind?

Are most / is it normal for a narcissist to be a cheater?  How do you safely leave a narcissist who has bursts of rage?  What is the best way to protect children?  How do you not lose your mind in the process?  And how often do they get violent?  Thank you

One thought on “How do you not lose your mind?

  1. I don’t believe they’re all cheaters because mine has every narcissistic trait but he’s not at all the flirty/cheating type. (Not being naive here either)
    The bursts of rage are very much part of the storm and I believe that if I hadn’t had him thrown in jail after the first act of physical violence, continued violence would have been part of my life. That’s the only battle I’ve won so far but I’d take a hit over the verbal/emotional abuse any day.
    Following on how to get out, as for now I take the lashings for the kids and we have 1 left in the house that will graduate this year then freedom. Meanwhile, planning ahead financially as he’s made it very clear that he’ll take the house and leave me with nothing. Start talking to lawyers now.
    The only way I’ve held onto sanity is by always standing up for myself and reminding him (talking to a brick wall) that he cannot take his rage and insecurities out on me. Hold on to your relationships as he’ll go to great lengths to isolate you.
    Start planning now and as soon as you’re set – GET OUT.
