1. So wonderful you shared this.

    1. Thank you Kimberly. I thought the post was on-point about sibling rivalry created by narcissistic mothers. Many people have issues with their siblings, not understanding that a narcissistic mother may be at the root of their problems.

  2. Interesting article Lynette. I’m happy to report that my siblings and I went in the opposite direction. We stuck together because all we had was each other. 🙂

    1. Yes Debbie, it’s a very interesting article. Unfortunately, the post is in line with the family dynamics that I grew up with. There were only two of us but we were not allowed to bond. My sister is just beginning to see what was going on. I’m glad you and your brother are close. I’m willing to bet that you’re in the minority as to this matter.

      1. It’s quite possible I may be in the minority Lynette. But I can say with honesty that no matter our bonds, the damage done to all four of us is harbored differently in each one of us. 🙂

  3. Great article, it’s so nice to know that I’m not alone in this experience. Next step is moving on from it…

    1. Unfortunately, this phenomenon is more common than many people realize.

      1. to experience the after affects of being raised this way left me completely broken in so many ways, I struggle everyday to live what is normal, constantly using self-reflection as a way to change my own behaviours so that the same pattern isn’t repeated. It’s a daily challenge.

      2. Yes it is a daily challenge. So many people go through life never understanding why. We are the fortunate ones…
