Publisher's Summary

Here's what to do when you suspect your mother ruined your personality. Do you find it hard to say "no" because you're afraid of rejection? Do you often feel empty and unworthy of love? It's time to talk about your mother.

Ideally, the bond between a mother and her daughter is a bond of unconditional love. Your mother's job was to teach you how to love and to be loved. However, quite a few women fail at this job - usually due to narcissistic personality disorder.

A narcissist is unable to respect other people's feelings and cares only about control. Being raised by a narcissistic mother feels like a curse cast by an evil witch. She took away your self-esteem and made sure you never feel "good enough". But you are not doomed. This audiobook is specifically aimed at women like you who want to recover from their mother's narcissistic abuse.

This audiobook will help you:

  • Make sense of your mother's behaviors
  • See through your mother's manipulation strategies
  • Defend yourself against emotional abuse
  • Confront your narcissistic mother and break her evil spell
  • Recover from the effects of narcissistic parenting

Recovering from narcissistic abuse can take many years and require some very difficult decisions. However, remember that you're not a bad daughter - you're literally defending yourself from an abuser. This audiobook will give you all the information and all the courage you need to make good decisions.

Excellent book

Excellent book for identifying and understanding the effects of being raised by a narcissistic mother. So many people do not even begin to understand the crushing devastation this kind of abuse causes, but Cecilia Overt obviously does. I have struggled for decades with my dysfunctional family/narcissistic mother and this book helped validate and encourage me.

Content is great

What I like about the book is how concise it is. It just goes straight to the stuff - no beating around the bush or long stories in between. I wish the person reading is a bit less robotic but since it’s a short listen and I like the content a lot, it wasn’t such a big problem. The book helped me understand a lot of things. Will definitely follow the suggestions said on this book to help me heal.

Gave me a lot of insight

I'm also the emotionally immature one! It gave me a lot of insight to understanding myself and seeing someone call me out in a way that I couldn't take offensively, but does force me to rationalize my behaviors and how I think.

This is an amazing listen for anyone who has lived through the experience and survived narcissistic abuse from narcissistic mother. Fantastic and therapeutic.

eye-opening audio book

This was a really eye-opening audio book. Unfortunately I know someone that is in an emotionally abusive relationship, so I started researching ways to help her and came across this book. It detailed many of the common characteristics of these types of relationships between mother and daughter. I do like that it covered leaving the relationship as well as staying, and went over aspects of both decisions. I am going to send this book to my friend and hope that it gives her the courage she needs to face this decision.

audio book

This audio book helped me realize that I need to grow up and not allow someone else's behavior to destroy me any longer. If these remarkable women can do what is necessary to find away to deal with their personal narcissist, I can find a way also.

Useful

It additionally took me by the hand and demonstrated to me a way out of the individual damnation that such a relationship makes. I have been progressively present, liberal and gainful from that point forward.

The book is natural

The fact is being a daughter of a narcissistic mother has long-lasting traumatic effects that can be extremely catastrophic to the person suffering them. The book is natural and connecting with, and each word turns out to be separated from your recuperating.
