I’d prefer a reptile mother. I’d rather not have a mother. (I’d prefer not to exist…)
You are doomed if you have a narcissistic mother. You should have gotten away, but how could you?
I always felt at ease around dogs. Never been judged. I was never embarrassed. The woman I have feelings for is a she-wolf. Within wolf packs, true humanity and motherhood are defined. Nothing else is required in life but the loving eyes of a true mother.
The poison we received instead of the true mother is the narcissistic mother.
Narcissistic traits, such as a lack of empathy, an excessive need for attention and admiration, and a lack of concern for the feelings and needs of others, are defining characteristics of a narcissistic mother. A narcissistic mother may be overbearing in her demands and control, as well as use her children for her own gain in manipulative and abusive ways.
As a result of their distorted and exaggerated sense of self-importance, narcissistic mothers may fail to see their children for who they really are: unique individuals with their own wants and needs. As a result, the mother may neglect her child’s emotional and physical needs in favor of her own wants and desires, which can have negative effects on the child’s development.
Low self-esteem, feelings of inadequacy and worthlessness, and problems developing and maintaining healthy relationships are just some of the potential consequences that children of narcissistic mothers may face. It’s possible they have issues with self-doubt, anxiety, and having trouble establishing and maintaining boundaries.
Seeking professional help from a therapist or counselor can be beneficial if you think your mother is narcissistic. Putting up emotional barriers between you and your narcissistic mom can be helpful.
