Whether it’s joy or anger, we’re wired to catch and spread emotions. Here's how to inoculate ourselves against negative ones.

I'm so sorry you had to go through that mental torture, not only in the divorce process, but all those many years of being married to a narcissist! I finally had enough after almost 11 years with my ex-husband, and boy was he shocked when I had divorce papers unexpectedly served on him!
It was incredibly hard for me to continually stand up for myself during the almost 2 years of our divorce proceedings. Mind you, it should have been the simplest divorce ever, as we had no children, and we owned a condo together, which in the state of California each party has a right to 50% of. It should have been very cut and dried But no, he drug everything out as long, as as expensively, as possible. Whatever, I just kept holding onto my belief in myself, that I am worth getting my fair share out of the divorce.
Keep holding strong, you are worth it! You deserve to not have to live under a tyrant, and to take whatever is legally yours under the divorce. DON'T GIVE UP, NO MATTER WHAT!
