It felt like I had taken a vow of indentured servitude. How had Prince Harming seduced me and kept me beholden to him for so long? He had Narcissistic Personality Disorder. I could now put a label on all of those cause-for-pause behaviors I had been observing in him for a long time, escape, heal and now help others.
