From reading this forum I realize many are attracted to Narc partners because of FOO issues. My mother is a Narc and from what I read I have all the traits of a daughter of a narcissistic mother.
I have signed up for Goldie's support group, which starts soon, so I imagine I will have the chance to examine how it had effected me - dependency issues, low self esteem, tolerance of abuse etc.
Right now, I am feeling the pain of allowing myself to be manipulated and controlled. Really over being codependent right now - just needed to share.
