Counselling Directory featured in Bustle
Narcissists, although sometimes seen as just an annoyance, can actually do real damage to the people around them, according to an article in Bustle. Bustle gave its readers the following strategies: recognise the competitiveness; understand that she is unlikely to change; trace how her behaviour has influenced yours; don't feed the inner voice; distinguish between conditional and unconditional love; do not allow other narcissists to come along for the ride and to consider cutting her off. Quoting a Counselling Directory article, the Bustle article stated: "The Counselling Directory recommends that one of the main ways that daughters can heal from a narcissistic mother is to "[recognize] the internalized messages of conditional love and the effects in your life and relationships, both with others and yourself."" To read more on the topic, take a look at Bustle's article.
