5.0 out of 5 stars Read it and weep..then rise up like a Phoenix...its not you..its her., 29 July 2014
This review is from: Will I Ever Be Good Enough?: Healing the Daughters of Narcissistic Mothers (Paperback)
Im half way through reading this book and ive opened up like a chrysalis! Ive cried so hard and i feel so sad, yet so happy that FINALLY i know that im not...and never was..." a stupid,lazy,fat slut'.Im 56 and all my life ive searched for the possible mental illness my Mum might have,or was this normal? My siblings and i grew up with a Mother whos constant 'illnesses' meant that in stead of a bike or a doll, we prayed for her to be cured from her agony.We cooked and cleaned and suffered thrashings for every real or imagined crime.I used to ask my friends if their Mums were like this. I have never been cuddled or adored as only a Mother can do,my heart still yearns for what ive never had.My Mum sits in a nursing home and still behaves the same..but now ive read this..ITS OVER...im a nice person...im lovable.Read this it WILL help but it WILL open it all up again. I can cope now and maybe even forgive.
