Any Others With Narcissistic Parents Here?

I don't usually join "I hate" groups, but I really do have a problem with this. My problem I know, but I can't help it. I hate feeling invisible, when I speak loudly and clearly but people don't respond in the slightest to what I say.

I know I'm overly ridiculously sensitive to this, and I wonder if it's to do with having been raised with a narcissist for a mother. Anyone else have this experience?

It is so hard to feel like no one sees you. No matter who it is.

True, and feeling no-one hears you and that you have no voice.

when I was forced to report to police threats made repeatedly against my life (from mums friends son) i told my mother what had happen and was understandably a hysterical scared blubbering mess.
She shock her head in disgust and said "oh god this is such an embarrassment. I'm having dinner with his mother tomorrow night"

Total lack of empathy, no wonder they are misdiagnosed as psychopaths!

My mother was always concerned about how others would see us. I heard many times over that if I could just be like this smart girl or that athletic girl, all so she could brag. I was and am never good enough for her.

It's like talking muffled or a foreign language to people. My voice is low with no volume.
