I'm not a professional, but was married for 30 years to a man with high narcissistic traits, perhaps NPD. I thought I was coping, but every day it was a struggle just to dig myself out of the confusion he created. So I know it's hard to live with it day by day.
I have two sons still living with me, one is 25 and the other 19. I actually want the older one to move out and get on with his life as I think he is postponing the last phase of growing up. He says it's financial but he has a job and earns a reasonable salary, so I'm not convinced. Maybe I should try reverse psychology and tell him I don't want him to leave me
Anyway, it sounds like you've got yourself on track to make an independent life, it's just the timing that's the problem.
It is not love that should be depicted as blind, but self-love.
