Emancipate Your Mind: 061: Roles in a Narcissistic Family System

Religious trauma is often tied to and perpetuated by dysfunctional family systems, particularly headed by one or more narcissists.

In today’s episode, we explore the roles in narcissistic family systems and how that affects each person’s sense of safety, belonging, and ability to care for their own needs.

    1. Ha ha! I KNOW that feeling! While all humans have narcissistic tendencies, not all of us qualify as narcissists. Being aware of our narcissistic tendencies and how they might affect others allows us to be accountable and NOT perpetuate abuse on others. This will be especially important for those of us raised in households with parents that had strong narcissistic tendencies because the dysfunction it causes will just seem “normal” to us without the work of deconstructing those family dynamics and healing the childhood trauma we may still be experiencing.
