My ex is a Narcissist, which is why I left him. One thing he is notorious for is making bad impulse decisions. From the beginning, he's always asked my input because he knows I think things through before making a decision. Every time I tell him what I think he should do, I also tell him why, and I tell him why other options are not right. That way he knows why I made that decision. But he always chooses the opposite...then later, crap hits the fan and he tells me how right I was and he should have chose what I said. And every time he made a bad decision, guess who had to fix everything? ME. Even as ex's, I'm still cleaning up his messes. If I don't, it could negatively effect our DD. If I don't clean up his messes, he doesn't clean them up either. I went almost a year not helping him and everything exploded, which means now he can only afford to pay less than half of his support payments.
