Per my reading: narcissistic parents often have a golden child which is seen by the parent as an extension of self and a scape goat, who can do nothing right. I don't think that Mom's behavior was that pronounced, but her favoritism of sis and her anger and ignoring me left it's mark. I read that this is a set up for the child to become a target for abusers. No wonder I had such a hard time getting away from husband. I was prepped to take it, endure it, as if this was my show of strength. Becoming aware.
