Wow Pam...that was a beautiful post. Made me think of my own experiences. I am in my 20s, so I guess that that doesn't make me an "older" person, but I no longer speak to my narcissist family and I can't believe how empowered I feel in comparison to me a few years ago. Heck, looking at past posts shocks me. It is a slow process to work through the emotions and sometimes, I still feel insecure and scared, but reading this helped believe in myself more.

I listened to my gut and it said "You could do with less of me."
