If my parents had of believed me when I was eight years old, I wouldn’t have been in therapy for 20 years healing from the impact of their ignorance.   Thank you, Mom and Dad

    Oh my gosh yes if only my mom would have believed me! I was so young when she introduced me to an old couple, she wanted to be my fill in grandparents after mine died. My life was ruined by s narcissistic mom who never cared for me. I’m old now myself and it never has gone away, the feelings of not good enough and feeling alone.

      Those feelings, despite therapy, never really leave. It destroys your soul when you are a child, let down when you need the people you thought you could count on failed. The anger and cruelty from a narcissistic mother are so confusing, at least for me it was, as I used to question constantly…..”Why the heck does this woman hate me so much”. Now I know! You are a survivor and a warrior! Hugs xx
