Poison Control: Why You Should Take The “My” Out of “My Ex-Narcissist”

Yes! Before I even knew what I was doing I stopped calling him “mine”. He certainly wasn’t “mine” during the relationshit, why on earth would I want to claim him after the completely horrible (and criminal) things he did? I usually keep it pretty simple, “the ex narcopath, the ex, douchecanoe, Crazy Asshole.” Definitely not MINE.

“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”. What a huge lie we all grew up with on the playground at school. Actions may speak louder than words, but words DO hurt us, even our own. They also have the power to influence or destroy, liberate or enslave, encourage or shatter and attach or disconnect.

Perhaps, that’s why I  just cringe every time I hear someone or myself say, “MY ex narcissist”. I recognize that many people might think I am making a big to-do about these 3 little words but every word we say matters. Words are so important. Even more than we realize. They literally shape our perceptions and our inner reality. The words we choose not only have a gigantic impact on our listeners but on ourselves as well.
