I am Maria Night and thank you for visiting my blog.
This is not my real name, by remaining anonymous I hope to be more open about my experience of physical abuse and what it is like to be the daughter of a narcissistic mother. I am not a professional psychologist, however have come to this conclusion through my own research and years of therapy. I am using this space as a way to share my experience in the hope that it will somehow be healing, and to reach out to people who were physically abused and/or raised by a narcissistic parent.
In this blog, I will share past events which have significantly impacted my sense of self, as well as what it is like in the present day to have a mother who is narcissistic. She is still very much a part of my life which is why anonymity is preferred.
A little background information is that I am married, in my 30’s and have two young children. I feel as though I owe it them to heal from this trauma so that I can be a better Mum and life partner.
In the process of healing I have recently found it helpful to distance myself from referring to my mother as “my”. Instead I refer to her as “the Mother” or “Mother”
