To Survive Narcissistic Parent Documenting Insanity
#1 Calender & Sharpie Pen.
Each horrifying experience is written in full detail on the day, month and year. The offensive names called, What all was said,
Did I get Punched, shoved...Then she pealed out of my driveway flipped me off and screamed "$%X#&"-"#@#"! As my children looked on at grandma's tantrum about setting a boundary with her, went "terribly wrong". I drew a line in the sand and she jumped up and down on it, in a "protest of disrespect".
No amount of "Gaslighting", "Triangulation" or Psychological Manipulations can erase the entry in my calender last week or last year. I know what went on that day. Even with two, three or more witnesses the adult tantrum will be denied till death. No acknowledgement, accountability or responsibility for the actions of the covert narcissist mother.
I began writing down every nasty encounter and wish I had done this long ago. As each time I review the calender year of unpleasant protests, what I wrote tells the truth of my life and
gives me a valid platform to make decisions or trying to come to terms with the kind of child tantrum mentality I am constantly manipulated and blackmailed with. I have fifteen years of calenders with black sharpie documentations throughout. Writing down the crazy behavior makes me acknowledge exactly what occurred and when. I am safe and my calenders are hidden from view or theft. The calender is my personal insurance policy that I am not crazy.
