5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for all daughters of NPD mothers!, 1 Nov. 2012

This review is from: Will I Ever Be Good Enough?: Healing the Daughters of Narcissistic Mothers (Paperback)
This is my first review ever but had to write it. After leaving an abusive relationship almost a year ago and soul searching why at 30 years old I never feel good enough or why i can't seem to love myself and after hoping that just once my mum would maybe say I hear/feel/understand your pain and I'm here. I realised that I needed to take a serious look at the whole me going back to my childhood, after researching for hours, days, months about abusive relationships and people I came across the term Narcissistic Personality Disorder often, not only did it describe my ex partner to a T but also it described my mum exactly too!
First I found out all I could about what NPD was. The signs and symptoms etc then I came across people recommending this book as a way to help heal the painbeing raised by a Narcissists brings.

This book is nothing short of a life line and saviour, not only is it helping me realise that it is not my fault that my mother is the way she is, it also showed me the family dynamics and how my mum uses me as the scapegoat and my sister as the golden child.

I LOVE THIS BOOK, THANK KARYL McBRIDE

There is so much information and examples of situations, I can relate to a lot of them sadly. The book also teaches you to spot if you are showing N traits and how you can stop the cycle.
I read it through twice first and have only just started the healing and it will be a long process but this book takes you step by step.
I hope you buy it if you think you or some one you know and love night be experiencing this, I will be getting a copy for my sister as she is just starting to realise our mother is so hurtful and damaging and can hopefully use it uniform heal her pain too.
Be prepared to feel a whole heap of emotions but it is so nice to know that you are not wrong and yes your mother could be Narcissistic. I have just started to distance myself and my children from my mum and now its time to focus on healing.
