Empathy vs codependcy A Recovery from Narcissistic sociopath relationship abuse. I seem to 'slip' into codependent mode in most relationships; then wonder why I get overwhelmed, used, hurt, misunderstood, etc.
I can smell bullshit a mile away today. I can also meet people, and feel like I'm shaking hands with the devil. It's an energy that most aren't willing to see, and they want to ignore all the red flags, along with their intuition.
