Truly weird. Can’t sugar coat it. lol
So, I took my father to the doctor. All went well & fast too. We were in the car, ready to go home before I knew it. Then he told me not to start his car. Uh oh.. well, long story short, he told me what an amazing woman I am. Wow!! I cried. It was very sweet.
Dealing with my mother was another story. I banged my knee on her car & she couldn’t have cared less. Although not surprising, it still hurt. She didn’t listen to a word I said all day either. Again, not surprising but it hurt.
Later, my parents’ skittish cat suddenly decided to trust me. After 5 years. It was awesome!!!! I love cats, & have always loved winning over feral ones or ones with trust issues. It’s so rewarding.
Amazing the huge ups & downs in a relationship with a narcissistic mother. Yet, I’m still glad I didn’t go no contact. A lot of very positive things are happening, amongst the bad.
I’m not preaching against no contact here by any means. I know it’s the only solution in many situations. I’m only sharing my experiences because I know many of you who read my work either are unable or unwilling to cut ties with your narcissistic mother. I want you to know I understand, & I hope my experiences can help you. ❤
