Reply To: Narcissistic Mother – the perfect training ground to marry a psychopath



Yes, and although I was dealing with parental influences before, I am finally standing up for myself more. I don’t want to ever relive what I went through with my ex, but in a way I learned a LOT about what I don’t want and things that have been influencing me nearly my entire life. I don’t feel that I have entirely worked through it yet, but I have made some incredible steps in that direction.
I spent a few years thinking that I should not focus on childhood issues, however, that really was the key to the whole thing. Now I am able to put some of those issues behind me. (I have a past full of yucky things outside of dealing with narcissists.) Whew.
