Re: Just gone NC the hard way...

Hi Steelerfan, Thanks for sharing your story. It's such a wonderful example of how, with a bit of help from a counselor who can present an outside view of the narcissistic world into which you were born into, can help you see the light. Congratulations, you have gone no contact to a point in which y...

Re: Mommy Dearest

Hi MD,
If you explain why your mother is going for custody of your daughter, it will be easier to understand the problem and to help you.
Hopefully this can be resolved.
Alternatively, contact me at enquiries@youronlinecounselor

Best wishes,

Beth

Re: Mommy Dearest

Hi Slam, Going no contact is not right for everybody. If you have decided that it is best for you to stay with your mother, then it is important that you learn how to set and maintain firm boundaries, otherwise you will continue to have your mother abusing you verbally and physically. It doesn't hav...

Re: Mommy Dearest

Hi Slam, Thanks for writing your story on the forum. Life sounds very difficult with your mother, and you are correct in saying that it will only get worse as she gets older. I have written several articles on the ageing narcissist which, if you haven't read already, you can find by clicking on the ...

Re: New here - not sure what to do...

Hi RacerWife, I agree it's a huge decision to go no contact with your mother. I have written some articles on this topic if you haven't already read them. These will explain the pros and cons and the process of going no contact. You can find them by clicking on the main website link above. I think t...

Re: Psychological serial killers

No problem, come back anytime. There are articles to read on narcissistic family members if you haven't already gone to the main site. The more you understand about narcissists, the easier it is to recognise the behavior for what it is, rather than it being directed at you, per se. Any sibling would...

Re: New to this site, my Narcissistic mother died two days ago, coming to talk

Hi Cathy,
It's great that you have the opportunity to attend the viewing and the funeral, and I think it's good to take it slowly with your father for the moment. Feel free to contact me if you feel you need counseling to get you through this transition time in your life.

Best wishes,

Beth

Re: New to this site, my Narcissistic mother died two days ago, coming to talk

Hi Cathy, You may be right in thinking that your family may be a source of ongoing pain for you, but you need to take care of yourself in the short-term. You are being excluding from the funeral planning aspects but it's important to decide how to say goodbye to your mother, no matter what your curr...
