One thing which will most likely happen after you’ve been discarded by the narc is your narcissistic ex may post photos or quotes about how happy they are now that they’ve left the relationship. You’re there nursing your wounds but they’ve already captured their next victim or they’re trying so hard to prove how they are happy without you. It’s sad but that is the reality of the situation and it will leave you feeling even more betrayed.

You feel betrayed that someone who once claimed to be your knight in shining armor isn’t bothered by the end of that relationship. It may make you think they’ve fully moved on but that’s not always the case.

They just want to prove they’re happy because of a number of reasons and one of them is it may be another devaluation strategy. They want to show you that they’re thriving in life and you were the problem. The moment you see them smiling and happy with their new supply, you will feel another hot dagger down your throat. You will feel bad about yourself and you will even think that you’ve made a mistake for leaving that relationship.


They may also showcase their happiness as a way to gain admiration and attention from others. It’s just an ego boost when they show others their happiness even when deep inside they’re being ‘dishonest’ with their feelings.

In conclusion, don’t let them or just anyone deceive you or stop you from looking at yourself. The best thing to do is to always cut off contact with your ex-partner so that you can have all the time and energy to focus on your healing journey. Don’t let their actions define you as they have in the past.
