An adult child of divorce shares a PostSecret about his mother. A parent with narcissistic tendencies presents as the perfect parent. In reality, the child is forced into putting their own needs and wants aside. This shows how nurturance plays a key role in who we become. Sadly, this mother will never know the damage caused to her child. Worse yet, her child will forever try to cope with the ill-doings done because of parental behaviors with narcissistic tendencies. How unfortunate for this child.
