My fiance’s ex wife is a narcissist who treats their children poorly. She takes all the child support money and spends it only on herself. My fiance was so generous in his divorce agreement to his ex wife because he didnt want her to take it out on their children. As a result of his generosity, he is living paycheck to paycheck and under a lot of stress to make ends meet. His ex wife on the other hand has hundreds of thousands of dollars in the bank and just bought herself a new luxury car with child support money. The unfairness of the situation makes me so mad and so frustrated and helpless as there’s nothing I can do. How can I accept that she is flawed, my fiance made a mistake in being generous to her and move on so I dont feel all this resentment every day?

Dealing with a narcissistic ex-spouse can be difficult and it’s understandable that you would feel frustrated and resentful about the situation.

Here are some steps you can take to help manage these feelings:

  1. Practice self-care: Engage in activities that bring you joy and help you manage stress, such as exercise, mindfulness meditation, or spending time with friends and family.
  2. Limit exposure to your fiance’s ex-wife: Try to avoid contact with her as much as possible and limit your exposure to any negative stories or updates.
  3. Focus on what you can control: Instead of getting caught up in the actions of your fiance’s ex-wife, focus on what you can control in your own life. This can help you maintain a positive attitude and keep your energy focused on things that matter to you.
  4. Find support: Talk to friends or family members you trust, or consider seeking support from a therapist or support group. Talking about your feelings and receiving support from others can help you feel heard and validated.
  5. Reframe your perspective: Try to view the situation from a different perspective. Recognize that your fiance’s ex-wife’s behavior is a result of her own flaws and insecurities, and not a reflection of your worth or your fiance’s worth.
  6. Focus on the present moment: Try to live in the present moment and focus on the things you are grateful for in your life. This can help shift your focus away from negative feelings and towards a more positive outlook.
  7. Let go of resentment: Holding onto resentment only causes suffering and prevents you from living in the present moment. Practice forgiveness and letting go of the things that are outside of your control.

Remember, the situation with your fiance’s ex-wife is out of your control, and focusing on what you can control can help you manage feelings of frustration and resentment. It’s also important to support your fiance and be there for him during this difficult time.
