reminder to children of narcissists

your feelings are valid.

no sane person wants to feel abused or neglected by their parents.

sane people want to love their parents and want to feel loved by them.

so if you feel like your parents have been neglecting you your whole life, ignoring your feelings, judging your hobbies and thoughts, treating you more as an extension of themselves than an individual with your own feelings and opinions and interests. if you feel like there’s something wrong with your family

you’re probably right. and you’re completely entitled to get help, or to get out of there.
