It’s the same cry – nothing I do is good enough. I’m always wrong. Picked on for my weight after throwing chocolate at me. When I’ve said repeatedly don’t bring it home. Stress/depressed eating is a real thing. At least my son wants to workout with me.
My kids look to me for leadership, not their father. They should be looking to us both.
The kids and I do a Bible study together. Never with my husband because not only will it turn into an argument, it will turn into him telling us how wrong we all are. I love studying with my kids because they are really opening up. It’s a sweet sweet time! I wouldn’t give it up for anything!
If I bring up a news article I like, he’ll be contrary. No matter topic of the article.
He judged a recent political situation – for all the wrong reasons. It didn’t matter that the people’s lives were in danger but he said he hoped these people learned their lesson.

Sometimes you can ignore the narcissist. Sometimes he leaves you in tears.
Sometimes you think you’ll never be good enough… for anyone.
