How narcissistic is it to think you improved someone's self-esteem, especially when you didn't treat them right?

My ex can't seem to stop posting about his "influence" over my self-worth. Yes, in a way he had SOME influence-- I learned that will not tolerate the a man that treats me the way that he did. And some of the disgusting hygienic things I learned by being in a relationship with him.

When I first came to GaG, I found a place where I could share some things about myself that I haven't been able to share in my real life, including my struggle with anxiety and depression.

Now I have to see him posting lies about me, claiming that I have other mental illnesses. In reality, he's angry that I rejected his horrid behavior and recognized him as a narcissist (also labeled by a professional that he claims doesn't know what she's talking about).

I recognize the uncomfortable place that this has put some of our mutual online friends in. I understand if you distance yourself from me or him, or whatever you need to do. I remember how convincing he was.

I've decided that that's enough. I've asked my last and final question about him. It's not going to ever change anything. It's disruptive to the enjoyment and positivity that I initially found when I came to GaG. And I no longer want anyone to feel caught in the middle of this futile war. While I will never apologize to him again, I'm sorry that my friends here and others have had to endure this!
