Well, that about says all it ought to, with regard to how to proceed, would you not agree?
Clearly, the woman has a pathological tendency for lies and deception, and is indulging in that behaviour, with the effect of tarnishing your name
about town, in what can only be described in the most abominable fashion possible. Frankly speaking, that would rather seem to have placed the final
nail in the proverbial coffin. It certainly bloody well ought to.
You are probably more than aware of this, but I feel it necessary to state it none the less. The pathological lying, and the fact that the lies she
is telling are of a sort which could destroy your reputation, if taken up as truth by those who hear them, AND the fact that she seems to be saying
these things in order to justify her poor behaviour toward you before her co-workers would suggest that she has some sort of narcissistic personality
disorder. You see, a person who is free of such a psychological condition as the one I have outlined, would find it quite impossible to be so callous
in her behaviour toward you, as the woman with which you are concerned.
I know that there are circumstances outside of your personal relationship with the woman, which might understandably make you wary of merely upping
and leaving the situation. There are practicalities in this life which constrict us all to varying degrees, aside from any secondary attachments you
may have made as a result of your being allied to this woman for a length of time, and dealing with these things will be hard, as it always is.
However, this woman appears to be of the most toxic, and psychologically dangerous persuasion possible. You have not asked for my advice
specifically, but just in case you would benefit from it, here it is.
Leave. Do not say a word, do not confront her. Just leave. Down all other paths, madness lurks to take you into the abyss.
