I like that punishing narcissistic mothers isn't a theme in this book. If readers don't want to, or don't feel that they can have a relationship with their mother then that's their prerogative but that isn't the objective. It's to identify, come to terms with things and heal so you can live a better life and break the cycle.
Please read this book if you even suspect you have a diminishing, overly self-centered mother. It is such a taboo in our society. It is a very hard concept to accept, which Dr. McBride reiterates over and over. We have been trained to be "good girls" and we all want that ideal family in our heads. Outwardly, my parents are still married, their three daughters grew up and flew the coup and they got a dog. Behind the curtain is a nightmare. Now when people ask me if I'm close to my mom I say "nope". I'm done carrying on the torch of pain, delusion and BS. This doesn't mean I will stop talking to her or retaliate in any way, it just brings me out of a deluded, painful and ineffective way of living my life, which is not at all the real me. I wish the best for both of us.

It is the first book that has given practical advice and concrete guidance about how to manage the loss, projection of feelings and poisonous messages given from narcissistic mothers. It has allowed me to develop a strong sense of self that hasn’t managed to fully form up until now, and set boundaries with my mother to allow myself a safe space to stay well in, without cutting her out of my life entirely. I have accepted that she cannot change, but I can/have, and it’s the happiest i’ve been.
