An imagined conversation with my abusive, narcissistic father

I haven’t spoken to my father in over ten years, and I’ve often imagined how our next conversation may go, if it ever happens. I needed to vent this for a while, but I didn’t because it’s TMI. I’m doing it anyway, not to be emo or fish for sympathy. My hope is that, if anyone else raised by an abusive, narcissistic parent reads this, it might make them feel less alone and less crazy.

If you identified with this post, you may enjoy the Reddit forum, “Raised by Narcissists.”

    This tells me a lot of who you are and why you are as wise as you are. I’m sorry you had to go through this BS.

    Never mind TMI – don’t we live in the “information age”? At least we can exploit it for some good & BTW … a selfie is TMI for me … look at me, look at me … ARGHHHHHH. Anyway, so glad you posted this – it just may help someone somewhere AND you need to have this conversation … even if it’s only with yourself & a few others who might read it to the end. I sent it to my son (27) & hope he reads it & hope it helps him put some things into perspective in his own life. Thanks.
