Many daughters of narcissisic mothers don't realize for years that this woman projected that she detested you daily. If you were scapegoated, your childhood was exceedingly harsh. You were aaat the mercy of a sadistic, cold mother.
On the outside there are acquaintances and friends of your narcississtic mother who believ that she is the best human being on the face of the earth. She is so devoted to her children despite her outside career. She worked constantly on this external person to make everyone believe what a fine mom she was.
Inside the home narcissistic mother is a completel nightmare. These non-mothers are cold and inexpressive. They don't have a moment to speak with their daughters who needs them. They are always busy, rushing to work, spending evenings completely out of touch with their children.
Some narcissistic mothers choose one daughter as a target for the worse abuse. I have known these daughters who weathered daily intmidations and humiliations, constantly undermining this child.
There are daughters of narcissistic mothers who leave the houshold early. They can no longer tolerate the level of maternal narcissistic abuse.
I congratulate your courage and fortitude. You know the truth. You are a fine human being. Your mother is a severe personality disorder.
Daughters of narcissistic mothers: I Hear You and See Your Tears, that lost, forlorn look on your face, the longing in your gut to be held and hugged, the deepest wish for a loving maternal gaze, a mother's words of praise and pride in her daughter.
Take time for yourself; listen to the internal voice telling you to: rest, sleep, find solitude, resdiscover your creativity, humor, your own pace, beautiful music, freedom to express yourself in te most authentic ways that are characteristic of you as a unique individual.
