    Yet another great article Lenora! Oh how I can relate! I was 55 when my N mother died and I can honestly say that I was never able to live my own life and pursue my own goals until after she passed away. I immediately went no contact with my 3 N sisters and what I have accomplished in the last 7 years is mind boggling! For 55 years my life revolved around the N dramas of my mother and sisters, my mother’s chronic illnesses, etc. It was like being in a prison I couldn’t break out of. When she passed away I was finally free to live my own life! I started a business which is now flourishing and just finished writing a book. Yes, life is routine now — blessedly routine! Routine enough to finally fit in all the things I have always wanted to do with my life! Great article — so spot on! Keep up the great work! I admire you and love reading your articles.

    I left my husband 12 years ago because he was a jerk and I was sooooo unhappy. It literally took years before I realized that he was a narcissist and what kind of damage he had done to our family. I had to learn how to deal with him in an entirely different way… which was to disengage! I didn’t realize how he had manipulated me over the years. There were some hard habits to break, for sure. But I’m stronger now and I don’t put up with his crap or engage so he inserts himself into my life less and less.
