Nina & Surviving The Status Driven Narcissistic Mother – Physical Abuse, Emotional Abuse, Sexual Abuse, CPTSD, Trauma, Narcissist Abuse

Play episode

Brandon talks with Nina about surviving abuse at the hands of her narcissistic mother and new abusive husband. It’s a story of kidnapping, conditional love, sexual abuse, physical abuse, sibling roles, trauma, guilt, shame, and healing. After being kidnapped by her mother, Nina took on the role of the golden child at an early age, as to not be vilified like her older sister. It’s a heartbreaking story of children just trying to survive the best way they know how. *** TRIGGER WARNING – This episode discusses physical and sexual abuse of a child. It is descriptive and is in more than one part. ***
