from living in stigma
Are you a ‘truth teller’?
“First you start to feel like maybe there never was anything wrong with you. That perhaps the people you called family were just horrible human beings that foisted their nefarious motives on you. They lied about you, about your worthlessness and your unlovableness and your hopeless loser life. Lies!”
I read somewhere (sorry, I can’t remember the source) that the “truth teller” who usually becomes the scapegoat of a narcissistic family, is actually the most mentally healthy family member, even if the family has everyone convinced that person is the craziest one.
Speak your truth, be yourself and if people don’t accept you then it is their loss, not yours!
If people don’t value your reality, your kindness, your honesty then they don’t deserve your time or your love.
When speaking your truth, have you ever felt overwhelmed with emotion? What has the emotion been? Anger, frustration, sadness, loss, disappointment?
The worst of all these for me was always frustration and then deep sadness..
When talking to a narcissistic parent, you feel all of these times 10!
Continuing to speak your truth despite the pain, frustration, loss and anger is very important…Don’t ever let anyone keep you silent..
