If you are unlucky enough to find yourself divorcing a narcissist, there’s bad news I have to break to you: The money is never coming back. Ditto that one-of-a-kind piece of blown glass he said he bought, and you finally gave up, because it was just too expensive to have lawyers exchange emails over that wonderful piece of the Aegean you purchased on the honeymoon with your own hard-earned cash. These are the property losses, some sentimental and others merely about dollars and cents — and it’s time you took a deep, cleansing breath and simply forgot about them.

Ditto the time you spent in the relationship — gone, gone, gone, unless you can get your hands on a flux capacitor and a used DeLorean. Maddening, to be sure, but the spilled milk adage applies here, and a sponge is what’s called for, not self-blame or even tears.

So what about the other stuff that got stolen? That’s the part I want to focus on, because I’ve yet to meet anyone recovering from a narcissist who doesn’t feel like the rifled and empty shelves of a robbed boutique.
