I don’t want to write this. You probably don’t want to read this but it is a reality that some people grow up in homes where lies populate and the child fears he will lose his sanity or he does. I feel I am betraying my family by writing this. I wonder if I am making it up. All that is common when you grow up with a malignant narcissist as a parent.
I think the hardest thing is swimming through the lies without letting them drown you and from the drowning, kill you. The malignant narcissist parent will not own any of her emotions. She projects them on you and then blames you for them. It is very, very hard for the child. It does take a great deal of fortitude and God’s grace not to lose one’s mind. There will be damage, though, as the child will have to warp to survive. The child will be like the bent tree. It did not die but it became some form of a mutant.
I will be back
