Characteristics of Narcissistic Mothers by Chris..........That's why I choose not to have children, being a child of a narcissistic mother , then a husband and mother-in-law, I didn't know what to call it then but I do now!.. It as taken me years to heal...............
my habit. this is my survival. this is how i became the best possible mother i could be to my own children. everything that i witnessed through out my entire life from my great grandmother, grandmother, and mother was twisted, evil, controlling, pure nastiness. each and every one of these women treated their own daughters with horrible hate. narcissistic mothers destroy their own families. i walked away. i am the black sheep. i am recovering. no contact. love those who love you.
