What Do I Do So Wrong? is an in-depth introduction to the narcissistic mother.
Often the characteristics of a narcissistic mother can be brushed off as her being "difficult" or "overbearing". In reality, the narcissistic mother hides many damaging behaviors that are a very real form of childhood abuse. This can be difficult for adult children of narcissistic mothers to come to terms with and comprehend, especially with the term narcissistic being such a broad term for a complex type of emotional abuse.
Do you feel confused, frustrated, or empty after being around your mother? Are you riddled with self-doubt, unsure of how your mother really feels about you? Do you find her reactions to your achievements or accomplishments leave you feeling like a failure? Do you feel suppressed, controlled, and like rejection is a feeling you're constantly battling with?
If this resonates with you, then it sounds like you have a narcissistic mother - just like me.
In this audiobook I aim to help you understand just what a narcissistic mother is, drawing from my own damaging upbringing and traumatic relationship with my mother. I want to offer my own experiences as well go through some of the things I did to break free from the emotionally draining effects my childhood had on me.
By the end of this book, I hope to have given you an understanding of the following:
- What a narcissistic mother is
- Why some mothers are narcissists, even toward their own children
- The effects a narcissistic upbringing has on adult children
- Ways to combat those negative effects
I'll use my own narcissistic mother experience to explain the behaviors she exhibits and the impact it has and help give you an understanding of why she treats you this way.
