Narcissistic Parents and the Damaging Effects on Your Adult Relationships: Toxic Family Legacy

Can being raised by a narcissist cause you to marry a narcissist?

If you’re married to a narcissist or in a long-term relationship with one, you may have also been raised by a toxic parent. This seems to be the case more often than not. Of course, there are other reasons you can end up with a narcissist, such as other types of childhood trauma and low-self esteem. But most of the time, people who were raised by healthy parents and who have reasonable self-esteem will not tolerate the abuse that comes with being involved with a narcissist.

So, let me ask you a few questions.

  • If you were raised by a toxic parent who may have been a narcissist, did you also end up marrying one?
  • And did you ever wonder exactly why you chose to get into a toxic relationship – and why you couldn’t see it in the first place?
  • Do you ever as, yourself why you married the wrong person?

In this video, I’ll explain why narcissistic parents and the damaging effects of being raised by them can lead you to find yourself married to a narcissist, or at least continuing in toxic relationships long after you leave your family of origin.
