    An excellent analogy. A relationship with a narcissist is much like a forest fire (I wish I would have thought of that but I will give credit where credit is due ) leaving a path of destruction behind it, destroying everything that comes in it’s path; but as with a forest fire a rebirth or rejuvenation happens after the devastation. The scars of the fire remain forever but new plants grow, some of them only grow where there has been a forest fire. You could look at the charred remains of once majestic trees and forever morn the lost of the forest or you can appreciate the beauty and life that follows the destruction; it is a choice.

    I truly hope you’re right, because this is incredibly painful.

    • I know. Be patient with yourself. I went from feeling the pain to remembering the pain to now feeling almost like it happened to someone else. Because in one way it did; I am no longer the woman I was. There is hope.

    The seeds of our Giant Sequoias need fire to prepare them to grow…just as we humans are tempered by the fires of personal disaster. I am glad you are growing back strong and tall, Lisa. – Fawn

    I love this. I’m actually writing something now from the perspective of the fire starter. I am divorced, but was the one who initiated for various reasons. I’m glad you are able to look back with healing eyes and view it is the start of something positive.

  6. Truly an excellent comparison. I am watching my Lavender grow in the backyard after I cut it back last winter, the stubs looked dead. Now it is rich and will soon attract bees and butterflies as it blooms. Perhaps this is similar. I will think on this one for a while.

  7. Amazing post. You have transformed my day. Thank you.

    […] My divorce was a forest fire – everything was destroyed and the land was cleared for new growth. […]
