I once fell in love. And he was a #narcissist.
For those who don’t know it, being in love with one of these people is equal to buy a one-way ticket to hell.
My life with him was always a roller coaster. One day he loved me, the next day he couldn’t stand me. And those days when he couldn’t, those were my troubles.
He would be aggressive, he would say and do things just to hurt me, he made me believe I was never enough.
He slightly pushed me away from my family and friends so that he could control me better. And he did it in such a sneaky way that I swear I didn’t realize what was going on.
I felt confused, trapped, alone. I totally lost my mind. None of my thoughts were making any sense. I wanted to escape but I couldn’t find the way out of it. We were living together, and I had no other place where to go as I was 17 hours flight from my own country.
One day, I told myself “girl, you are not this kind of person! You are not born to be a victim, so you must PLAY HARD!”.
That day, I made that statement last forever. I went to a tattoo store and I put it on my skin, in a position where I can always see it, on my right arm. And a month later, I finally found the strength to take my life back in my hands and I broke up.
2 years after that, I decided that I wanted to share my own experience to help others, and that tattoo became a t-shirt.
What I would like you to look at, it’s not the sad story behind it, but the positive outcome I got from quitting such a toxic relationship.
The smile I thought I lost forever, came back to me even stronger than before. And the happiness I feel now for anything that makes me feel good, it’s the sincerest happiness I’ve ever felt.
And today I’m here to tell you, as I did it, you can do it as well!
