"I've Been In A Relationship With A Narcissist For Four Years"

Love, Heartbreak

My boyfriend abuses, manipulates and cheats on me. How can I get over this experience?

I have been in a relationship with a narcissist for over four years. I didn't realize he was a narcissist until I began to feel as if I was losing my mind about two years ago and sought out therapy. My therapist happened to specialize in narcissism abuse and told me this was what I was suffering from. The relationship, or lack thereof, began good, then got very bad and the cycle continued to get progressively worse and littered with emotional abuse.

My therapist moved about six months ago and my life seems like it has been in shambles since then. I have been on a new conquest for a new therapist, but to no avail. Instead, I have searched the internet for tips and surprisingly haven't found much.

A couple of weeks ago I suspected him of cheating. For example, he only wanted to have sex outside of his home, and if I did go to his home I noticed things were tidier than usual, he had an extra toothbrush, changed his mind about us being exclusive every other day, and gave me silent treatments if I gave any opinion on our situation.
