Growing up with a Narcissist means it's all about the outer image of a perfect family/ perfect parent. What goes on behind closed doors is not that at all. Often fear tactics are used to "control" and keep the "truth" from being told.

You are allowed to terminate your relationship with toxic family members. You are allowed to walk away from people who hurt you. You are allowed to be angry & selfish & unforgiving & don't owe anyone an explanation for taking care of you.

Yes, YOU are the toxic ones. Willfully remaining ignorant and harping on trivial matters while ignoring facts is toxic. Memes and the phrase "fucking kids" is not.

Siblings Not Encouraged to Be Close: In healthy families, we encourage our children to be loving and close to each other. In narcissistic families, children are pitted against each other and taught competition. There is a constant comparison of who is doing better and who is not.

You can love them, forgive them, want good things for them... but still move on without them.
