This lady begins telling us that she grew up in a very loving home. That they were "good parents". Then proceeds to describe two dysfunctional adults who offloaded their emotional trauma on their daughter and always expected her to be the best at what she did. 🤔 That's not being a good nor loving parent.

The lady telling this story sounds like a narcissist herself. The way she describes herself. How it's the world against her. I don't doubt that this Janice woman was a piece of work, but I have serious doubts about "Meredith" too.

So I’ve never listened to a podcast before, just listened to Billy Jean on here and OMG. It’s nice to know others have experienced exactly the same. I’m only a month into healing, but if you ever need someone to interview, I’m here. Looking forward to listening to these stories.
