Narcissism: I’m the Lost Child of my family

image

I think I was wrong about being a former golden child. I don’t think I ever was. I was/am the lost child. I was/am shy and introverted. I worshiped my narcissistic mother and narcissistic golden child sister so they would love me. When I began to speak up and call them on their bullshit, they began turning me into the scapegoat.

It makes even more sense now. I thought they were like best friends to me. I can see now that it was very one sided, with both of them.

The more I read about dysfunctional families with narcissistic mothers,  the more I learn about myself and my crazy family.  The more I put myself in the company of my mother,  the more I believe this is really true.

    The lost child is often and can be the true hero in a dysfunctional family system. Your introversion is a gift and your way out of the insanity with your family and the world. More power to you. You have a lot to contribute. Don’t give up before the miracle happens. I am wishing you much grace.
