I liken being raised by a narcissistic mother (and an absent father) to being raised by an alcoholic or a drug-addict. A lot of the negative effects from the emotional and psychological abuse, gaslighting and games, a complete lack of stability and security spawns many of the same common struggles you’ve listed here.

Thank you for sharing.
