Publisher's Summary

You are moments away from learning how to stop your mother’s narcissistic behavior from getting through to you, to protect yourself from emotional abuse, get your sanity back, move on, heal, and build new boundaries!

The bond between a parent and a child is supposed to be special; it is supposed to be formed on the basis of unconditional love and support. Anything aside from this is a toxic relationship. 

But if you dread any contact you have with your mother because a phone call from her is usually a roller coaster as she:

  • Always has to criticize you even when unnecessary
  • Manipulates you
  • Has to get her way all the time with complete lack of empathy
  • Never sees anything good you do
  • Is always humiliating you in front of people
  • Is passively aggressive towards you
  • Makes mean and negative comments about you
  • Has no respect for your personal boundaries
  • Never takes responsibility
  • And plays victim all the time even when she is wrong by turning things around to make them about her

It is clear that what you have with your mother is not a healthy relationship. She may play victim and paint a rosy image that you have with her but as an "insider", you can see right through her for who she is; a canning, manipulative and lying narcissist that cares less about anyone else. 

I know you are wondering....

  • But what do you do about it; after all, she’s your mother?
  • How can you stop her manipulative advances towards you?
  • How can you make her to see and understand herself for who she is, the way you see her?
  • How can you unchain yourself from her claws and control so that you can have independence of mind and thought and finally be happy?
  • How can you build boundaries that last in your relationship with your mother?
  • Do you have to abandon her and if yes, how do you develop the courage to cut ties if you have to?
  • How do you ‘put your foot down’ to stop all the manipulation, love bombing, gaslighting, neglect, isolation, verbal abuse, and exploitation by your own mother?

If you have these and other related questions, this book is specially for you so keep reading. It covers everything about dealing with narcissistic manners without losing your mind and sanity in the process!

More precisely, the book will teach you:

  • The basics of narcissistic tendencies in mothers, including how they manifest as well as how they affect children (the victims) with their narcissistic tendencies
  • How to spot narcissistic tendencies in your mother
  • Covert narcissistic mothers and teenagers
  • Whether or not your narcissist mother can recover from their narcissistic tendencies
  • The things narcissistic mothers say to their children for mental manipulation and to control them
  • The connection between narcissism and upbringing
  • How you can protect yourself from emotional abuse

Excellent audiobook !

For any girl who has inquired as to whether they will ever be adequate for their mom. I additionally prescribe it to any advisor or guide. Now and again what cuts down ladies like me is the steady update that something isn't exactly right, however it's insufficient to send up any warnings and we wind up feeling let somewhere around our moms, our locale, and ourselves. It's astonishing to discover a audiobook about narcissistic guardians, however explicitly about the mother/little girl relationship

Helpful information.

If you are looking for helpful information about the mother daughter relationship, this is the audiobook. However, if you are looking for even more, like working through old patterns and ways of thinking that are no longer serving you or any of your relationships, this is also the audiobook. Karen deftly writes about what she has gleaned from not only deep study, but her own personal work, creating a concise guide to help you begin to understand how to dig out of frustration and guilt. Highly recommend

She Wrote As If She Knew Me

I am just coming to the realization that my mother is a narcissist, finally putting a label to the pattern of behavior that has been so troubling all my life. While enough of what this author experienced is relatable, some is not so relevant to my situation. I found the outline to be a little disorganized and repetitive, but I did not find the writing to be full of typos as some others have noted, and I was a Creator and editor most of my career so I am always sensitive to inaccuracies. I believe the distraction was more due to the differences between American and British spellings. What is important is the recording. The more light shed on this topic the better.

Outstanding!

This material is Creator from her heart of darkness. I know because I have one very much like it. I applaud her courage and tenacity, her willingness to be vulnerable. Audiobook recording this for an honest assessment - clearly gained through experience. You will need to overlook grammar and clerical shortcomings. The material itself is accurate and encouraging. She makes recovery seem possible and I thank her for her desire to offer her hard-won victory as help and hope to others.

Very important insightful Audiobook -

I've 'known' all the points in this audiobook recording and have never been able to put it into words or discuss this concept. I have always felt like life is a complete uphill march and feel embarrassed at my inability to stop saying yes when i mean no, even when it puts me in danger.
