  1. and narcisstic women destroy their children. They’re better off without. Stay away. My mother is like this and everyone feels so sorry for my poor dad.

    • I have felt sorry for my dad as well but no longer should. I got out, no one saved me, no one helped me. I had to study the situation formally through years of therapy and workshops and books and suffer terribly through being targeted in many situations that replicated the one at home but I indeed separated from the demonic force of my mother, by free will. My father has free will. He WANTS the benefits of his life — to be seen as acceptable to his side of the family (her side is all alienated), to be seen by the public as being in an intact marriage (v. divorce stigma), to be comforted by lack of change (a.k.a., not to suffer the upheavals I have in excavating the poison she issued and which I had absorbed as her target). Additionally, his decision to choose this benefit plan made my mother worse, because it enabled her, and exposed me to worse, including attempted murder. It’s not true that he’s helpless. It’s true that he’s hapless.

  2. He got off lightly.
    Mine poisoned, beat, cheated, perverse triangulation’d, tortured via food, attempted murder.
    Watch “Married to Medusa”, he plans to out breed psycho’s. It’s possible.
    Good luck guys.

    • Interestingly identical pattern here, as an offspring, due to the demonic force of my mother. If I get through this life as if free of the programming and the haunting (including attempted murder), it will be a miracle and one that I deserve.

  3. Great insight and thank you for sharing. I think the incident of female narcissism is probably higher than we realize, possibly because men do not complain about it as much as they can or maybe should. Often men just assume women are being over-emotional and they tolerate abuse more than necessary.
