Hello, so sorry to hear what you’re going through since all those years. I had toxic parents too and I cut ties from them in jan or feb 1999. Abusing others is all some people will even know. It sounds like moving to your own accommodation would be a good first step. Your sanity is important and I believe you can regain it slowly and steady. Narcissistic behaviour is horrible, and I was just reading another article on ways narcissistic people abuse others. Sounds a bit like what you described in your posts. It’s horrible and leaves deep emotional wounds.Do you think it's coinidence that myself, my bro and my sister between us never had a friend? I could just off the top of my head from memory reel off 50 names of our childhood friends who my dad ensured we had nothing to do with. At 34 I'm not sure I'd know what to do. I suppose I was just hoping to find out if anyone else had this scenario or even if it was relatable at all to anyone. The more I learn the more I realise my dad is/was a narcissistic bully and my mum likely his ideal manipulated victim.
Baby steps, to a new improved life. It’s hard to shake off their toxic stink, but its possible.
I write when I feel the clouds coming into my mind (which is often), so maybe this could be something for you to try too? Diary or journal writing? Help you unravel the jumbled thoughts.
