Behind every great man is his mother. Someone imagined the mothers of these well-known sons making the following comments:
I think one of the hardest things for me, having lived through a narcissist mother, golden younger brother Mothers kindness enabling father, is how to treat extended family gatherings.
My mother died two years ago after several years of serious illnesses. The final year included pancreatic cancer and a terrible death I was her caretaker, medical advocate… it took a tremendous toll on me but I was the only one Mothers kindness enough to help, and my father is also sick.
Without going into a long story, I think most of the scenes were predictable. My cousins and other extended family do not understand the distance between myself and my brother. I made the mistake of trying to explain the situation to two of my cousins. Since my brother is Mr. Personality and Sociability, they look at me sideways.
I love my cousins very much. They were fortunate to be raised without personality disordered parents and seem to me to be loving and balanced persons. Their families are intact and loving toward each other.
They feel sorry because they believe I am hurting my brother. This makes me feel a little nuts. But trying to get closer to my brother makes me feel even worse. I tend to arrive late and leave early. I am close to my fourth husband and my grown children.
I have about three close friends. At nearly 60 years old, will I get comfortable with myself the way I am, or will I always feel haunted by failed relationships? I wish I knew what kinds of heebie jeebies work themselves out with time and what kinds benefit from therapy.
I completed about three years of that three years ago. My father is not well, I look after him in his own home, and I want his last years to be happy.
He likes these occasional gatherings, and although he does not demand my attendance, he definitely enjoys everyone together. I wish I could be at peace with this. August 27, at I have had trouble my whole life dealing with my narcissist mother. Many of who have already written on here have described a lot of what I have gone through….
The mental abuse that was in my life has haunted me in my dreams today. Be one with yourself and keep your spirit high! Listen to yourself and your intuition, because they are telling you where to go to be safe.
It is better be a wolf for a day then a sheep all your life! I am with the spirit of the wolf and I run my own path….
I wish you all peace and peace with yourself cause it makes a difference to your children!
August 31, at 4: I could see other mothers loving their daughters, but I knew it was not what I had. I was definitely the scapegoat.
I was made to feel ugly, stupid, a sinner, etc. I lived wherever I could just to get by. I finally put myself through college and got decent jobs, but I never felt like I was any good.
I am terrible in relationships. August 31, at 5: I have a younger brother in and out of prison, divorced, with alienated children and violent engagement, and a youngest sister who, when it comes to me, demands, and takes, when I really need the time for self and family."When people see this Award on your site I want them to know that the site that has achieved this Award is a friendly place, a place where you will feel welcome as an equal; a place of quality, in honor, kindness, and sincerity, no matter what your standing in life.".

Narcissistic mothers may exploit their children to meet their own egoistic needs; entirely abandon their children in pursuit of attention and admiration from others; or envy their offspring for what they get out of . Mother’s Day Kindness.
May 6, Kindness is a choice. *** The next morning is actually Mother’s Day and as a treat to myself, I take to my bed with a cup of coffee and my laptop to write down some notes about kindness.
Naturally, both kids are drawn in by the relative quiet. Nature abhors a vacuum.
