Am I narcissistic?

Answered 2 years ago

I wrote a letter to my daughter aged 21
I wrote I feel like I can’t talk to you and I feel you don’t like my advice but you like your friends advice and it hurts.

You told your friends you were applying for a job and you didn’t tell me until you got the job. It hurt me.

I feel the gap between us is getting bigger and I don’t want it to get bigger.

I do worry about your finances and not sure how much you have saved hope you spend it wisely
Hope you are saving and if you need money feel free to talk to me about it
Love your mother

My daughter and I are very close but I think she’d roll her eyes if I wrote a letter like that. It sounds like you really care about your daughter but you also sound a little needy. Give her space to grow. She’ll come to you when she really needs to.

Is this your only child? Maybe seek counselling as it seems you are feeling a sense of loss with her independence

I can see how heartfelt your letter is. I can also
See your daughter rolling her eyes as she reads it. 20 year olds are more likely to open up to their friends than their parents. It isn’t a reflection of you as a parent. But just how 20yo are. I also feel that you need to let your daughter make her own mistakes. It’s the only way we learn and grow. All you can do is tell your daughter you love her and be there for her when she needs you.

Of this is legit, 20 year olds don't care about their parents opinions, of course they listen to their friends!
