He is the Lie…From Hello to Goodbye

He is the lie, from hello to good-bye.

I love you to I hate you. You’re beautiful to you’re ugly.

It was all a lie.

And I have no room in my life today for lies.

When friends or my family ask, but what about this, or what about that, I tell them. It was all a lie. There was no truth in him.

If I spend my time trying to figure out fact from fiction, all I am doing is trying to prove — I wasn’t so stupid. See, this was true. That’s why I fell in love with him.

Truth is. I fell in love with him because I believed his lie.

When I discovered the truth, I was so enmeshed in his lie that I couldn’t find the truth in me. And so I sank.

He did a lot of horrible, terrorizing things to ensure I stayed hooked into his lies.

In accepting the truth that what he did was based on lies, I am able to accept that the hooks are also lies — and in that truth comes the power to let them go.

Every so often he’ll sneak up into the back pockets of my mind and settle in for a little visit.

That’s when I have to turn up for me and say, go away. There is nothing in you I believe in. Everything in me I do.

And when the tears and fears and sorrow become too great, I simply breathe, look up into the sky and see once again the limitless possibilities of my life today.

This was my marriage to him. Nothing is real with someone who is false. These people promise a dream and deliver only nightmares, nightmares that last many years later.

That is all you can count on with a narcissist, is for them to lie. They believe their own lies so no use trying to point it out to them.
