This book explains that daughters of narcissistic mothers may be subject to projection, extreme jealousy, and envy because you are viewed as her extension (or shadow). It finally confirms what you may have sensed already or had been told by others whom you have a loving relationship with. This is a must read! Learn to move on and realize that it is not about you! As explained it is usually passed on from generation to generation. Break the cycle if you are now a Mother and want to show your own children what true unconditional love is. Once one has their own family they truly realize what genuine love is, and that placing your children's needs before your own is priority. This book is a true awakening for anyone who has dealt with this issue. There is no need to blame someone who is suffering from a mental illness as described in the DSM. There is no need for one to feel obligated to be a part of a passive-aggressive battleground, with a narcissistic mother as the ring-master. It gives a new perspective, and arms the reader with knowledge that gives the tools to become the authentic “me” as well as how to recognize destructive relationship behaviors due to growing up with a narcissistic mother - and to change its course when it rears its head. I actually have been in contact with the author, and have found her personal insight to be extremely enlightening. Read this book and move on with living a happy, liberating and emotionally healthy life!!
I was led to this book from a Facebook group that the author admins, which, unsurprisingly, is a support group for children of parents with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. The author spends the first couple chapters helping the reader to identify behavioral patterns that are indicative of NPD, while also relating some of her own experiences dealing with her mother. Later in the book she coaches the reader on how to move beyond past hurts, forgive, and how best to be at peace with the NPD parent.
This is a great resource. Tina knows what she is talking about, and communicates her knowledge & experience on the subject in a clear and well-organized manner. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who suspects that they are dealing with a parent with NPD.
It describes my mother perfectly, and has helped me no end.
The author seems to be a very kind and generous person, who has even messaged me privately to answer some questions I had.
If you are looking for the best book to read on narcissistic parents, then don't go past this book.
