Now I'm recommending it

I'm about halfway through "Children of the Self-Absorbed" now, and I heartily recommend it. Even if you're not the child of someone with what the book calls a "destructive narcissistic pattern" of behavior, there's still a lot of good stuff in here. It's got a lot of good information about certain sorts of behavior patterns in those who've been invalidated, and had boundaries erased by others. You know, people like me...

I'm just now getting into protective strategies, and coping strategies. Empowerment strategies are in here, too. It's been valuable, although it doesn't fit me comfortably -- in fact, I'm going to pass it on to my mother, since a lot of it seems ot fit her pretty well. (She doesn't fit much of the DNP described in the book. But other members of her family sure do!)

So, that's an update, and a recommendation.
