Toxic narcissists have neither limits of decency nor respect for other human beings, including family members. One narcissist allowed to abuse, control and bully freely over decades can psychologically decimate many members of one family. One of he worst constellations is the mother/father narcissistic duos. Children of these unions have it very tough. It is all about their selfish, self absorbed, cold and often enraged narcissistic parents. Children from these families learn survival skills the hard way.
Many of the victims of growing up in a narcissistic family spend yeasrs in the healing process. They learn to recognize and appreciate their identities are separate from their narcissistic family members.
Begin with self care each day: Get the rest and sleep that you need and deserve; move and exercise your way; listen to music that is very meaningful to you; spontaneous writing with a pen and paper in an unedited way offers opportunities for open personal and creative expression. Spend time with Nature and its incredible variety and beauty. Give yourself tremendous credit for the journey of restoration and transformation that you are taking. Be very kind and patient with the little child inside of you.
