Daughters of Janus Faced Narcissistic Mothers


Quoting from psychoanalyst Alice Miller about the dilemma of a child of a narcissistic mother: “The art of not experiencing feelings – A child can experience her feelings only when there is somebody there who accepts her fully, understands her and supports her. If that person is missing, if the child must risk losing the mother’s love of her substitute in order to feel, then she will repess emotions.”

From her earliest days and months the daughter of the narcissistic mother experiences a cool dismissiveness. The little daughter feels the disdain, aloof distancing, disregard, disrespect emanating from this mother…In her presence she felt edgy, scared, humiliated, emotionally small and insignificant. 

Different kinds of narcissistic mothers:

Narcissistic Mother most accomplished

Narcissistic Mother Most Regal

Narcissistic Mother Most Holy

This child cannot be her true self since this is forbidden and signaled by the narcissistic mother as a negative vulnerability, a weakness, a lack of character. As a result this child cannot be authentic and must put on the facade that mother demands of her. 

There is a time of awakening. With your insights, research, intuitions and revelations of your narcissistic mother’s true nature, you move forward as a grounded, true self individual, fully entitled to yur unique individuality, integrity and your creative gifts.
