  1. I agree with a lot of this….but! when the ‘mother’ is proven to be constant with the negative ‘energy’ the criticism, the humiliation, etc. over many years or decades…you have to realize that you are not up against something rational. Some Path. Narcissists are so twisted: their wiring is so twisted that you can’t do anything except realize that No Contact is the only way to save yourself…to thrive, to survive. My ‘mother’ is 97. How in Hell does a person of that age find the energy to be as she is? Because narcissism, especially when it is of such depth and length…is impossible to ‘work with’. The only way out is to leave. Permanently. Because Narcissists of such power don’t change. Ever. They have no reason to do so. I am successful, an author of 7 lovely books and this is ignored and denied by my entire family. Siblings and insane mother. I worked my way out of this behavior of my ‘family’ by working my ass off…to prove to myself that I was more than ok, but ok was good enough!
