Narcissists are very hard to recover from. Why? Because they do not care about anyone but themselves. So anything they did or said to hurt you, they will never apologize for, as normal people do, so the victim still hurts & there is no closure, so they are left with so many questions but will never have the answers. Therefore, the only way (if you are lucky enough to get out of it) is to MOVE ON, try your damnedest to realize everything I mentioned & have NO CONTACT.
