Healing from narcissistic abuse is a long and complex process, Grief can arise for the abuser.
There are many reasons to grieve after an abusive relationahip. There can be grief for the loss of the one you loved, even though they were portraying a false self to you.
There is grief for the future that you thought you were working towards. There is grief for the past memories which are now darkened by the reality that you were being used and manipulated.
Healing takes time and grief can turn into “complicated grief” which becomes a mental disorder . You can become depressed and lose the ability to function in life.
