VIDEO: Do Narcissists Ever Hit Rock Bottom?

If you’re waiting for the narcissist to hit rock bottom in the hopes that she’ll change, stop waiting. Narcissists don’t have a rock bottom. They do, however, hit the Wall of Accountability and that’s a very different thing. Instead, determine what your rock bottom is. In other words, how bad does it need to get before you end the relationship? Furthermore, do you really want to wait for that?

    Well at 46 I had been single for 15 years raising my 3 sons, nephew & caring for my disabled mother.
    I met her. Beautiful brown eyes and she asked me to give her a chance.
    I had reservations. A good job a family and I needed nothing but a partner, a life time love.
    For 2 years she was wonderful. Her kids and mine rejected our union but she assured me we would stay strong.
    That was until the honeymoon. First time I saw her flip. Told me. She didn t love me, she was sorry she had ever met me or married me.. A few hours later I was told it was hormones, change of life, menopause.
    Oh that it had been true.
    At 4 years I filed for divorce it had been a roller coaster from hell. Mood swings. disappearances, belittlement, sleeping in a vehicle to avoid the anger and violence.
    She showed up at 4am asking for counciling and sucking me back in..
    I loved her with every fiber of my being. Did everything she asked.
    For 1 year it was pretty good. Her kids were not speaking to her because she was back with the white guy. Hispanic wife. She had no one but me I had no one but her.
    As soon as the kids were back in I was back out. Same routine and 0 to 100 mood swings. No talking . A visceral hate and contempt is all i recieved.
    I finally gave some back. Not the violence. Just hurtful words. Now I was the abuser. Constantly accusing of things I did not do. Everyday tearing me down.
    I filed for divorce in California. Now after working for 40 years in a dangerous job. I am enslaved to her for life after 9 years 11 months of hell.
    It does not matter her abuse or the scars on me or my familys lives. She tried to have my son and I killed by the sherriffs with lies..
    Does the court care. She said what she wanted. The judge cottled her. I could say nothing my attorney said nothing.
    It was an abomination of a trial, of justice.
    She a licensed professional. Me a blue collar with failing health.
    60% of base wage for life.
    Life is a joke. A bad one.
    Traded my life for a sociopath and the courts don t want to hear it.
    Storys of lies and hoovering, mood swings.
    Heavy debt , working 7 days a week. With no end in site. 58 not left with many choices.

    Very interesting post. I got my rock bottom when I started realising that he would never change. I got back with him briefly and he showed surprise” How can you be with me after what I did to you?” I am not sure myself. I guess I was looking for closure and I still had hope that he would eventually see the errors of his ways.

      “How can you be with me after what I did to you?” is a good question. Unfortunately, it’s easy to mistake for remorse. It isn’t remorse. Usually it means the narcissist understand they can behave even more deplorably and you’ll continue to accept it.
