Narcissistic mothers teach their daughters that love is not unconditional, that it is given only when they behave in accordance with maternal expectations and whims. As adults, these daughters have difficulty overcoming feelings of inadequacy, disappointment, emotional emptiness, and sadness.
I feel so bad for the kids who are growing up in the middle of this. Years and years of therapy ahead. (No, I am not referring to my own mother, for people who enjoy stalking and drawing conclusions. I am a student of psychology.)
I will take everything negative about my mother and flip it in my life: I will create a welcoming and warm home life; I will express love and encourage others daily; I will extend myself to those in need and I will remember: a life well-lived is the best revenge.
