I had to write a post about this after listening to the beginning of Week 4s lecture.
It did not become apparent to me till very recently the psychological damage caused by Narcacistic parents. It is also very difficult for me to admit that both my parents perfectly fit the description of being Narcacistic. Behaviours like being over bearing, controlling, living vicariously and aloofness where all present for most of my life.
It is comforting to understand why parents behave and parent this way. It is much easier to forgive. It is even harder to see parents of my generation do it to their children now.
I want to end with sending all the love and light to all Narcacistic parents including mine. May that find the courage to love themselves enough so that need not to project their needs onto their children anymore. Bless them all 🙏
