Unfortunately I found this out too late. I did not realize that my mother was a narcissist until I got into counseling a short time ago. Then I had an aha moment. My daughter is 33 years old and is very much a narcissist and now my grandchildren have a NM. What a mess!
That is so sad. Did she spend a lot of time with your mother in her childhood?
Yes she did. I traveled with my job 100-150 days a year. I had no idea what damage that I was doing to my daughter. I feel so very guilty. But now she is a full fledged narcissist. Trained by my NM.I pray daily that I can find a way to undo what I've done to her
Please don't blame yourself. It is not your fault. You were working and trying your best to provide for her. You cannot blame yourself for something you were unaware of.
