Narcissistic Abuse

* To reduce in importance or repute

Every encounter

casually claws,

little by little,

insidiously, into

particular places that felt

safe and sound. Now

eternally effaced.

    Intrigued. It seems to me that those who have not been exposed to life with a narcissistic loved one think we just stand up and say " no, this is unacceptable"...then walk away. I wish it were that simple. Thank you for sharing this genuine perspective.

    I like your take on the eclipse challenge. The idea of a lingering and growing threat is intriguing. It speaks to old, inherited fears from humanity’s deep past. The moon is more powerful than many of us realize.
