A child of a narcissist parent may grow up with feelings of low self esteem, feelings of never being good enough. How did your narcissistic parent affect how you feel about yourself?

  1. My father was a horrible person. Growing up he made me feel like I was worthless, ugly, and never good enough. I spent a long part of my life believing these things about me. It wasn’t until I was nearly 30 that I decided to do something about it and started counseling. I have come so far from the angry person I was to who I am now, but I still have moments where the doubts planted by years of emotional abuse still haunt me. It wasn’t until recently that I realized my father was a narcissist. I have been reading so much about it and can relate so easily with people who grew up with a similar parent.

  2. I wanted to add to my last comment that because of my narcissist father I haven’t had a healthy relationship with a man in my life. Things are getting better, but I worry I might never have a truly genuine intimate relationship in this life time.

  3. I always liked to use the line from the Soprano’s when Tony’s mom died. Tony’s sister asked if anyone would like to say anything about “mom” at the wake. No one would even dare. Then she said this and I have always remembered it because it reminds me so much of my mother
    “My mother believed the wild flowers grew best among the rocks…..with very little water.”
    I am going to use that line at my own mother’s wake.
