Narcissistic Parent: Collateral Damage

Today I would like to speak a little about being the child of a narcissistic parent. Primarily I have gotten some letters from adult children of narcissistic parents. Narcissistic personality disorder is along the lines of borderline personality disorder. Essentially, in this disorder, the person is extremely superiority oriented, and has difficulty receiving any kind of criticism. They think of themselves as better than anyone else. Very self-centred, self-involved, in a very extreme way. We all have self-involved ways of being, but this is an extreme sort of way of being. It’s very volatile; it’s dramatic, emotional, you never know what’s coming at them; the person’s up, they’re down, they’re depressed, they’re screaming, they’re yelling; their problems are the centre; their emotions are the centre of the room, and nobody else’s emotions or feelings really matter to that person very much. They have a real difficult time in relationships.
