As we all know, I do a lot of blogging.  Sometimes I write and write because it’s therapeutic and then I will go back in and tighten things up and edit days later.  Sometimes three paragraphs can be summed up in one strong sentence.  Through my blogging, I have developed “blogger-ships” (my name for friends who I have yet to meet) with a handful of women whom I deeply respect.  As many of you know, its refreshing to connect with someone else who knows and understands.

A fellow blogger was able to sum up my entire plight in two paragraphs which I would like to share with you.  In technical terms, “Paula nailed it“.

Quote from Paula Reeves-Carrasquillo: I wish more people understood why women divorcing narcissists NEED to seek full custody. It’s hard to explain to individuals who have never experienced this type of person. Why would a mother deny a child their father? Because the father is only the father by name, not by action, deed, understanding or love. The courts don’t get it, either.

So it’s up to each of us with stories and experiences to increase the awareness of narcissism and other personality disorders of Cluster B that are detrimental to a child’s existence if one or both patents are afflicted. Narcissists are not interested in the well-being of their children. They are interested in gaining control over them and using them as tools and weapons. I wish the courts could see this. I wish there was a way to photograph someone with a special camera that highlighted the ones with this. But until then, we just need to keep battling for the children.
