Symptoms of Daughters of Narcissistic Mothers

Narcissistic parents can have short-term and long-term influences on their daughters. 

1. You believe you can belong only if you abide by the rules.

To some, belonging to a group can be a source of comfort. It can provide a sense of community and support. However, if you believe that you can’t belong to a group unless you adhere to the group’s rules, then you may have a problem. This type of thinking may lead to isolation and dissatisfaction. If you rely on rules to determine who you are and what you can and can’t do, you may find that you’re not able to grow and develop as a person.

2. You consider love as conditional.

“The love grows out of something. It might be respect, admiration, sexual attraction, or intimacy. But it grows out of something.”

If you are not dating such a person then you are lucky. As important as it is to find someone to love and to fall in love with, it is not as important to find your soul mate. Soul mates are special in that they are made for each other. They complete each other. You don’t have to make a soul mate out of someone. You are not a magician. But it is often a lot harder to watch love pass you by than to try and make a relationship work.

If you grew up around narcissistic parents it would be natural for you to crave validation and attention from others.

– You have learned that loving and being loved is a two way street. Usually when someone loves us it makes us happy and when someone loves us it makes them feel good too.

– You have learned that love is a reciprocal relationship. You don’t expect people to love you just because you are you.

– You have learned that love is a two way street. You don’t expect people to love you just because you are you.

– You have learned not to set your expectations too high.

3. You give more importance to appearances.

If you grew up with a narcissistic mother, you may have developed a tendency to value appearances and disdain others. You may have developed a fear of being rejected because you felt your mother never accepted you. Or perhaps you developed an adolescent fear of being thought of as “fat” or “ugly” because your mother always put you down.

If your mother was narcissistic, you may have a tendency to put yourself down too because you are afraid of being criticized or rejected. You may wonder if other people are judging you all the time. You put on a good front, but you constantly feel like you are not good enough.

This is particularly difficult to deal with when you have children of your own. Perhaps you tried to pass along your mother’s obsessions with your own children, telling them that they were beautiful when they just weren’t. Perhaps you criticized them when they didn’t look good enough. Or perhaps you became very critical when your own children messed up their hair or had too much makeup on.

If you are afraid that people will always judge you harshly, you may develop body dysmorphia. Body dysmorphia is an eating disorder where a person feels too fat or too ugly. He or she considers himself or herself to be ugly and unhealthy, even though he or she isn’t.

4. You accept narcissistic abuse and manipulation as normal.

_The reality is that narcissists are masters at manipulation, deceit, and lies. They are experts at gaslighting and making your trust difficult to break. There is a reason why they hide behind their computer screens instead of coming right out and telling you how horrible you are. They know how destructive their words can be._
