Thank you for this, Jean. So many people were born to narcissistic parents, so they can't quite the behavior themselves. I think that without therapy and unlearning, they would carry this delusional attitude into their future relationships. More enlightenment on the narcissistic trait needs to be addressed, otherwise it continues to be an endless cycle. Like you, I have a strained relationship with my mom, and I don't know if that is going to change. My condolences for the result of your previous marriage.
