There are various entanglements with our kind and it is invariably the romantic one which has the most significant impact on the victim.
Many commentators fail to identify and breakdown the fact that there are different dynamics within the romantic arena, instead focussing solely on the idealisation-devaluation-‘discard’- hoover cycle. There are other dynamics besides this, which I have written about in numerous articles.
There are different stages within those varying dynamics and you are invited to choose between one and three of those stages which has had significant impact on you. No doubt all relevant stages have impacted on you, but do choose only the top one, two or three which have had the most significant effect on you.
Was it the realisation that the delicious golden period was just a manufactured illusion? Perhaps it was the sudden change from vibrant partner to unresponsive robot as you were taken into the Stranger Zone ? Was it the lack of explanation for why you were unceremoniously dumped or perhaps the sudden switch from idealisation to devaluation? Were you affected significantly by always being kept waiting, The Other Woman or The Other Man, as you waited patiently (or perhaps not so patiently) for the narcissist to leave their partner?
Choose upto three which are relevant and as always please do expand on your thoughts in the comments section.
