My oldest daughter, now in her mid-20s, has always been the in-charge, critical child, bossing around her younger siblings and eves me. She’s narcissistic and has a hard time understanding that anyone else has feelings aside from her, and she never thinks any of us are good enough for her.
She’s now married and lately has been feeling left out. She’s always wanted to be the center of attention but confusingly has also recently distanced herself from us claiming that we don’t communicate well and don’t pay enough attention to her.
She’s emailed and called her younger siblings to warn them about our toxic family, which, according to her, they don’t recognize yet. She claims I’m the cause because I don’t pay enough attention to all of them. These siblings then call me to assure that they don’t feel that way.
