“First you start to feel like maybe there never was anything wrong with you. That perhaps the people you called family were just horrible human beings that foisted their nefarious motives on you. They lied about you, about your worthlessness and your unlovableness and your hopeless loser life. Lies!”
I read somewhere (sorry, I can’t remember the source) that the “truth teller” who usually becomes the scapegoat of a narcissistic family, is actually the most mentally healthy family member, even if the family has everyone convinced that person is the craziest one.
