Summary

Do you think your father might be toxic?

Many people do and sadly there is very little information available to be found online or in the written research, or with counsellors and therapists that can help. Narcissistic Victim Syndrome is not officially recognised, nor is it widely even known.

Even when it is accepted, recognised, and known not many people seem to know what to do about it to heal it.

But first, a warning:

Before we go further, let me make something abundantly clear: This audiobook does not contain a "magic wand" that will bring you instant answers without having to do any work.

What I’m about to share with you takes both time and effort and has worked wonders for me and my private clients. And I believe it can help you too.

But this only works for those who are willing look deep inside themselves and are committed to finding true happiness.

So with that said, let me tell you:

As a child:

  • You felt like you were never good enough
  • Your father didn’t seem to care about your feelings
  • Your father was very controlling and manipulative
  • You were made to feel bad or wrong if you got upset
  • Your needs weren’t met

As an adult:

  • You still feel like you are not good enough
  • You feel confused, anxious, sad in your relationship with your father
  • Your father puts you down, and never celebrates your achievements
  • Your father is very critical, manipulative, controlling, and tells lies
  • They still don’t seem to care about your feelings or your needs
  • You feel like you are the one parenting them

This audioook is for you if you have been in a toxic relationship with your parent and you just want to make sense of it and make some changes.

This book explains so much about my childhood

This book explains so much about my childhood, especially the idea of the narcissistic father pitting his daughter against the mother. I've only began to properly rebuild my relationship with my mother since moving out. Since they've got divorced, me and my mum found out about narcissism and we're both helping each other heal from over 20 years of this bullshit. I idolised my dad as a kid and when him and my mum split for the first time I was about 10. He manipulated me, made out like the split was my mums fault and literally said things like "she doesn't want us to be a family anymore" when he left her. (I didn't know this until years later) I'm now having to deal with a lot of guilt and self resentment that it was my fault my mum took him back when she could have been free of him years ago. She said it wasn't, that she was the adult and chose it, but I can't help feeling that if I wasn't around, she wouldn't have suffered as much for so long. In the end he became violent. He doesn't speak to me much now, because I've refused to feed his ego. I've refused to be the person that deals with his emotional baggage. I'm no longer of value. jeez.

Realistic View

The author is genius in that she doesnt fluff the reader with pep talk. She uses empathy from her own childhood to parallel scenarios with your own. A great motovational source for me as I have had a horrible relationship with my father. I have learned from her to forgive myself and go for it!

My father was very verbally abusive

My father was very verbally abusive in private. And the ideal father when others were around. People thought I was lying. Unfortunately this created an opening for a family friend to molest me when I was a child. I am now in my 50's and able to deal with these emotions. And see my father for the flawed man that he was.

Highly recommended!!

My father was just angry and used his kids (primarily me and my brother) to vent stress,anger and frustration physically and verbally. In public, he was the "nicest man"....

I was subjected to a neglectful narc father. Reappear, disappear, etc. I was more like his cousin. Except for when I passed my bar exam. Then I was the daughter. Threw me an expensive party, then disappeared.
