Debra & The Betrayal of Her Bullying Narcissistic Family | Domestic Abuse

Play episode

In this episode of Narcissist Apocalypse, Debra tells her story of being the family scapegoat for 50 years. Following a horrific three-year period, in which Debra discovered that her teenage daughter had been sexually assaulted by her nephew (the only son of Debra’s golden child turned narcissist twin brother), Debra broke up with her family after enduring decades of emotional/psychological abuse, which in Debra’s childhood was also punctuated by physical abuse.

It’s a story of intergenerational trauma, scapegoats, gaslighting, the golden child, competition, physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual assault, bullying, control, cruelty, epiphanies, rationalizations, the need for approval, being good enough, resilience, courage, putdowns, and manipulation.

***Debra would like to recognize and acknowledge all the caregivers and support from police, child services, and support services involved in her story.***

*** CONTENT WARNING – This episode discusses physical abuse and child sexual assault.***
