When we’re young, parents shape our entire world. We learn from them, look up to them, are loved by them and, at times, may feel hurt by them. As a child, it’s impossible to see parents for who they really are – normal people who have fears, anxieties and sometimes, mental health issues. They struggle to provide the best life they can for their children, but not all parents are emotionally able to provide the love and support children need for healthy development. This is true in the case of narcissistic parents.
