I want to save this, and share it for anyone who stumbles upon it. Narcissists who prey on others are evil and should not be allowed access to the best parts of you.
Consider this a public service to anyone who has a narcissist for a parent. They can run from benign to pure evil, but they can be identified and avoided. You can’t choose your parents but you don’t have to go on protecting them or letting them continue to make you feel like shit.
From my brain monkeys to yours.
