If you’ve broken away from a spouse who could best be summed up as controlling, maniacal, deceitful and utterly deluded in the thought that they are fine, it’s the rest of the world that has a problem, well done you!
It takes a very brave soul to step away from somebody that has such a loose grip on reality.
Difficulties arise when you remove yourself from the frame and they find a replacement whipping post in your children. It’s disturbing to observe evidence of them drip-feeding poisonous verbal cocktails that paint them out as the victim, when the truth is quite another matter.
However, deep-tissue lies are very hard to sustain and eventually, they will be seen for who they are and they may have to face dire consequences from their actions.
If all you can do is send the child your love and as much reassurance that things aren’t as they seem, do it and do it as often and in as many ways as you can, be the light and send the love.
