Narcissist parents.. Perfect timing; I finally went 'no contact' with my NPD mother. Yep, I am "too sensitive"-"selfish"-"mean" & since she "owns me", how DARE I.
Don’t Be Selfish (open link for the rest of the comic strip)
Exactly. I want to have kids sometime, but I don't want to do it just because I want to feel like I have purpose in my life.
Justin FIND ME cuz I will never find you no matter how hard I try :(
And I don't mean to come off this cruel but don't ever fucking tell me no one cares. Never let yourself say that you're unloved. Open your eyes dear, people are here for you.
Being a parent means loving your child more than you've ever loved yourself. So don't be selfish.
John Steinbeck on Falling In Love
When I say 'I miss you', what I really mean is I miss the potential we had. I miss the 'place' we never fully arrived at. I miss what could've been.
Try to fix your flaws (compulsive lying, selfishness, meanness...). Embrace everything that you think are flaws but actually aren't.
