The first book specifically for daughters suffering from the emotional abuse of selfish, self-involved mothers, Will I Ever Be Good Enough? provides the expert assistance you need in order to overcome this debilitating history and reclaim your life for yourself. Drawing on over two decades of experience as a therapist specializing in women's psychology and health, psychotherapist Dr. Karyl McBride helps you recognize the widespread effects of this maternal emotional abuse and guides you as you create an individualized program for self-protection, resolution, and complete recovery.

As adults, these daughters have difficulty overcoming feelings of inadequacy, disappointment, emotional emptiness, and sadness. They may also have a fear of abandonment that leads them to form unhealthy romantic relationships, as well as a tendency to perfectionism and unrelenting self-criticism or to self-sabotage and frustration.

Finally! '' A book that explains my childhood! I never knew that there was a name for the brand of Hell raised by my mother. The concept of maternal narcissism was introduced to me fairly recently, and about 9 months after I had no contact with my own mother after realizing that she would never change. This book gave me insight into my own feelings, how I was raised, the pain I experienced, and helped me understand that I am not the crazy one, my mother.

   Great read
I am so happy to have found this book. The real help really helped me to heal and forgive. It helped me in my relationships with others to improve and be a better mother, noticing these properties in myself, being raised by a full blown narcissist. Examples in the book are sadly more extreme compared to my upbringing, which helped me realize that I didn 't have it so bad and find gratitude in my situation. It helped me realize that my mother became only what she was because of her sad upbringing and that I should have pity for her. I have changed my perspective and outlook and also helped me to process my emotions so much better, so that I can function more as a wife and mother in life.
