In healthy families, we encourage our children to be loving and close to each other.
In narcissistic families, children are pitted against each other & taught competition.
Put your own emotional needs last – grew up with a verbally, physically abusive parent, or a manipulative one, your own emotional life will always come last in the hierarchy of household.
You find trusting relationships difficult – if parents, who are meant to be our main caregivers are deficient or can’t give us real support, we will find difficult to create supportive attachments when we grow up, or believe they are going last.
Parent asking the child to be their parent, and to fix and support them.
Parents placing unrealistic expectations on child’s role in their life.
People know who they can walk over and who they can’t.
If someone is walking all over you, it’s because they know you’ll put up with it.
Leave & thanks for all difficult people in your life, they show you exactly who you do not want to be.
This is exactly how I feel from time to time, their disgusting attitudes remind me strongly that I will never become this type of person.
