The aging narcissistic parent and the role of the “chosen” child

The aging narcissist faces desolation in the twilight years. They’ve created a wasteland for themselves. They’ve pushed everyone close to them out of their lives. They’ve used everyone they know; those who have given (and given and given) of themselves to the narcissist realize that their work has no reward. This realization creates isolation for the narcissist. There is nobody that wants to continue to serve the narcissist’s needs with nothing in return. The narcissist is a black hole that will suck you dry. When you’re dry, you’re no longer of use to them, and you are tossed aside like trash. The chosen child of the narcissist has a complex role in the aging narcissist’s life; they’re the last string for the narcissist when his wife has left him and his friends have jumped ship.
