Venus grew up in a cult of her mother’s narcissism, delusions, and rage. To Venus, this was normal. The brainwashing was winning. However, in her late twenties, Venus entered therapy, opening a floodgate of repressed memories that would change her family life forever.
It’s a story of generational trauma, plausible deniability, neglect, dissociation, people pleasing, hyper vigilance, parentification, weaponized poverty, mocking, threats, perfectionism, fear, hypocrites, mixed messages, guilt, rage, mother-daughter sexual abuse, animal abuse, physical abuse, enabling, programming, enmeshment, narcissistic fleas, scapegoats, the golden child, body issues, black & white thinking, and much more.
