Yes, old patterns come creeping right back, don't they? It's almost like I subconsciously re-created the exact same situation I was in with my first husband, all over again! He was/is a pathological liar, very, very sick and probably one of the few bona fide sociopaths I have ever known in my life (they only make up 4% of the population, according to a book I read recently). My psychologist met him once (we were already divorced; he came for one of our kids who was getting some counseling) and the doctor's advice to me regarding him after the session? "Never look evil in the eye."
Anyway, here I am, being lied to again, freaking out. You're right, I have to stop asking why and just deal with this like a big girl. I am trying to believe you guys are all giving me "tough love"! Although I must admit sometimes it feels like some have contempt.
I'm not perfect, I'm making lots of mistakes, but I'm not giving up. Please don't give up on me!
