Publisher's Summary

Have you ever felt like you can’t seem to exceed your parent’s expectations?
Were there instances that made you question your importance in the family?
If so, read on. It is your time...to leave the past behind and shine again!

Being adults, we are on the verge of balancing our personal lives and our roles in the family. Often, we don’t feel it yet, but some of us are dealing with narcissistic parents.

Narcissism exists on a scale of self-enhancement. Individuals with extreme or unhealthy traits may have underlying self-esteem issues which promote the appeal of narcissistic supply, helping to propagate the addiction. However, this is not always the case. 

In the long run, narcissists are unhappy and make those around them unhappy. And the best option when dealing with a narcissist who is not undergoing a period of self-enlightenment or change (which is highly unlikely in this group) is to cut off or limit contact, depending on the nature of your relationship. As some narcissists are vulnerable to varying self-esteem and hyper-vigilant to the slightest insult or threat, they may be susceptible to narcissistic injury. In these cases, the narcissist may become abusive to the degree that even a distant relationship is impossible.

What will you find here, in this book:

  • Emotionally Immature Parents
  • Types of Toxic Parents
  • Traits of Narcissistic Fathers
  • Reclaiming Your Life
  • Self-Awareness Healing
  • Practical Exercises for Recovery
  • Accept and Trust Your Feelings
  • And much more!

Your priority is to manage the situation for the good of yourself and your dependents first and everyone involved. 

If the situation cannot be managed well, it may be best to walk away and disengage.

Are you ready to explore how to deal with your narcissistic parents effectively?

I will listen one more time

Very helpful in providing insight as to how to deal with gaslighting parents. Not an easy way out, but a path to build day by day.

Amazing listen

I appreciated the examples Aphrodite provided of how to emotionally separate from a difficult relationship. And she suggested the way to do it without experiencing shame and guilt.

This book changed my life.c

I finally found the courage to be honest with myself and my father about what life was like for me as a child, and how it impacted me as an adult. I can't tell you how empowering that feels. I know that I will face fallout from my dad and the rest of the family, but I also feel like I am free.

A perfect book about these topics

This audio book was referred to me by my therapist and I was sceptical at first but once I started listening to it I automatically saw myself in a lot of the things she was saying and I will say I am excited about the road ahead of me and the recovery process I will go through. definitely a must-listen!

This is such an informative audio-book

I like this audiobook because I learned from this audiobook about the basics of narcissistic tendencies in mothers, including how they manifest as well as how they affect children with their narcissistic tendencies. The ins and outs of effective parenting were very helpful for me, so I'm going with this audiobook.

Good audible and recommended

I listen to this when it first came out and really loved it. It explained so much to me. What I thought was normal based upon my upbringing was actually the cause of my heartache. I recently listened to it again. I recommend this audiobook along with a recovery group. This has helped change my life and those of others.
