Happy Mother's Day to all. Hopefully this will encourage all of us to teach and train our young people or people of any age to KNOW THEIR WORTH. I am about to tell you all of a great - in this case - mothers and daughters movie called The Joy Luck Club. If you have not seen it, I suggest renting it. This is from a scene between Lena and her Mom. Lena is married to a narcissist so I do think this applies, as Lena is a sweetheart but terribly unhappy.

Dialogue:

Lena's Mom: Do you know what you want from him?

Lena: Respect, tenderness.

Lena's Mom: Then tell him now and leave this lopsided house. Do not come back until he gives you these things with both hands open.

Lena: I can't.

Lena's Mom: Losing him does not matter, It is you who will be found and cherished.

I will not give any more away. You will have to see the movie to know the outcome. But I do think we all need to be reminded of our worth. No matter if that reminder comes from a mother or a friend, or a fellow narc survivor such as myself. We ARE worth so much more.

Have a blessed Mother's Day to all the Moms out there. Enjoy the day no matter what.
