24 Characteristics of Narcissistic Mothers

24. As a last resort she goes pathetic.

When she’s confronted with unavoidable consequences for her own bad behavior, including your anger, she will melt into a soggy puddle of weepy helplessness. It’s all her fault. She can’t do anything right. She feels so bad. What she doesn’t do: own the responsibility for her bad conduct and make it right. Instead, as always, it’s all about her, and her helpless self-pitying weepiness dumps the responsibility for her consequences AND for her unhappiness about it on you. As so often with narcissists, it is also a manipulative behavior. If you fail to excuse her bad behavior and make her feel better, YOU are the bad person for being cold, heartless and unfeeling when your poor mother feels so awful.

  1. My mum did several things to me.
    Withheld love and emotional support.
    Always used the phrase OH well, as if to say you should have done better.
    Institutionalized me on several occasions.
    Played me off with my brothers.
    Always made me the butt of her jokes.
    Never encouraged me to be a good person.
    Finally when I was 14, “You’ll only ever be good enough to dig trenches and graves at the local cemetery.
    Sadly I never had any friends as per the article. Not did I have a childhood that I care to remember.
    I was often suicidal and attempted many times.
    I set myself up for marrying two women who played the narc game better than my mum.
    On the other hand, I became an INFJ and excellent at my current career. I care about people and actively promote men to empower themselves.
    I’ve now learned what it means to hold oneself in an integrity field, boundaries and respect of myself.
