Narcissistic Mothers Being Nice
Part of the head-wreckingness of being the Daughter of a Narcissistic Mother is that these women are quite often
nice to us. It's not unremittingly awful.
It can be very confusing though. And of course, if you try to tell them you don't like the way they treat you,
they can validly point to these nice things.
The thing is that there's always an underlying tension. You're only ever one wrong word away from it all going
wrong. You can never relax. If you don't give her her due respect or adoration, or if you disagree with her, or
whatever tiny trigger sets her off, then you get at best a cooling-off, and at worst, a bout of Narcissistic Rage.
You need to play by the rules, and then all is well.
Just never, ever EVER protest any treatment you get. The nice things are a favour doled out to you
by her grace and favour. You actually have no rights. And if you try to assert rights - well, the fun is over and
you're put back in your box.
Another aspect to Narcissistic Mothers being nice is that it's often a control thing, with an agenda - there is
often big strings attached.
