There is a pattern of psychological and emotional abuse that follows children from narcissistic parents to partnerships with narcissistic personalities.

Childhood trauma causes a series of severe intrapsychic wounds that are exceedingly painful and gut-wrenching. The life of a child who is continually abused from the child he or she is born is immeasurably horrific.

Those who have not experienced childhood trauma can approximate and imagine what these children suffer and endure.

These small children are at the mercy of cold, enraged narcissistic parents who make them into servants and treat them like slaves. No one pays attention to their cries, screams and pleas for mercy. Crying out in these situations causes more physical and psychological abuse. Crying children are often struck physically if they continue make loud noises. Everything must be kept quiet so that no one outside the family knows the ugly truth.

The narcissistic mother glares menacingly at her small child. The stare is very frightening. 

When a child grows up the victim of narcissistic abuse, he is conditioned to this experience and it deepens with the intrapsychic structure. 

the narcissistically abuse child doesn't develop a strong sense of self entitlement: to be treated with respect, empathy, understanding, having an appreciation of you as a unique individual.

After many year and decades of marriage to the narcissistic spouse, the non narcissist is the recipient of the psychopathology of their partner: silent treatments, projections of vituperative rage, constant lying, double dealing, threats, vile criticisms and humiliations.

Today's narcissistic society is impatient and dismissive of those who have suffered in these extreme ways. They become "bored" when the person doesn't get "cured" quickly. 

With research and insight you recognize that you have been trapped in a nightmare with the narcissistic partner and that you deserve to take a different track.

You are moving forward in the direction that belongs to yo, your pathway to freedom and deep inner peace.

Practice daily self care, sleep,  rest, nutrition, movement/exercise, meditation, prayer.
