Understanding unconscious influences in the narcissistic home

I came across the following video from Athina at Courage Coaching last night while browsing You Tube, it addressed a lot of issues I have dealt with and also realised after listening to it had powerfully influenced my mother’s life.   The key insight for me lay in the fact that in these kind of homes the child has to grow up too fast, their needs are often neglected because the parent’s needs come first, there is an strong influence and expecation on looking good, getting things right and being perfect so there is a strong repressed shame element in these kinds of families which I am sure many of us will relate to.  I hope is helps some readers.  Athina has an excellent blog site and many other helpful You Tube videos for adult survivors.
