He distorts truth. I suffer the consequences.

Grains of truth become elaborate lies

After 20 years I divorced him and lost all the "we friends". There were no "my friends." He was angry at being left. He made up stories, that's what he does. Tell stories. Grains of truth become elaborate lies that he then believes are the Truth. I pay the price for his lies. Lawyers got half of my settlement, he got the rest of my life. I do not know where to start to rebuild at 50.
