Being Raised Right

6 Signs You Were Raised By A Narcissist

As we grow up, we start to realize that there were many critical moments in our childhood that helped define who we are and how we see the world presently.

As with all things in life, some had it better and some had it worse, but being able to cope with how you were raised and making peace with any unresolved issues is an incredibly healing process.

This is something that we all go through at some point, but the children of narcissistic parents have it especially bad.

They've been brainwashed into believing that they are the ones who are crazy or "not all there" by their parents.

So, many of them have low self-esteem because they're always doubting their own reality.

Here are six signs that you were raised by narcissistic parents:

They guilt you into a codependent relationship

If your parents ever pleaded with you to stay with them because they absolutely needed you or claimed they couldn't live without you, they did so because of narcissism.

They don't like when you can live a life completely independent from them, so they guilt you into doing things for them.

They only express love when you do the things they want you to do

Narcissistic parents withdraw quickly when they don't get what they want or feel slighted.

One method they enjoy using is the silent treatment. If you often felt as though you needed to earn their love by being at their beck and call, you were raised by narcissists.

They were always lying to you or omitting certain details

The narcissistic parent likes having leverage to hold over you so they can use it to their advantage when they need to. Lying and manipulating, these parents were always using circumstance to set up various pitfalls for you.

If you never knew when to really trust your parents, they were narcissists.

They were entirely uninterested in you

These parents were never concerned about how you felt, what you cared about or what you were going through, because they were too preoccupied with their lives to really take any interest in yours.

They always presented a "perfect" image of the family to others

Narcissistic parents always make sure that their family image is pristine.

They want other families to be jealous of all of the love and success their family has, even when their family is completely dysfunctional.

You were obviously aware of what they were doing, but never spoke out because you knew it would be bad news for you.

You were constantly being insulted by them

Narcissistic parents often degrade and harass their children on a routine basis.

They like to pull down your spirits by constantly reminding you of your flaws and insecurities. These parents like to humiliate their children.

Just A Matter Of Minutes

Perhaps the most interesting factor in life is that all it takes for a drastic life change is just a moment. This can be good or bad. In a moment you can lose everything, say the wrong thing, or trip and fall into a lifetime injury. But at the same time, our whole identity is created in moments, such as the moment of your first kiss, the last time you see someone you loved, or the moment you hold your newborn baby for the first time.

This set of twins was born within just minutes of each other. However despite being twins they were born on different days, different months, and even different years.

Did The Hospital Make A Mistake?

Now it's easy to wonder: "how could this even happen?" Maybe in the heat of the moment, a staff member accidentally wrote the wrong date on the birth certificate or the system made an error.

But the situation was much simpler. What happened was that parents Fatima Madrigal and Robert Trujillo of Greenfield welcomed a son named Alfredo into the world on New Year’s Eve at 11:45 p.m, their local time. Now that part makes sense. What makes this story interesting is that exactly fifteen minutes later, another baby pushed out and the couple welcomed Alfredo’s twin sister Aylin. This put the time of her birth to be on New Year’s Day, a whole day, month, and year ahead of her brother's. Now he can always claim to be the oldest and no one can argue against it.

The Magic of A Unique Birth

Thankfully both babies came out healthy, despite the complications that the birth of twins can sometimes face. Aylin was welcomed into the world at 5 lbs., 14 oz., while her big brother, Alfredo weighed 6 lbs., 1 oz. Even their parents were amazed that their children now had different years on their birth certificates. The mother explained: "It's crazy to me that they are twins and have different birthdays."

Although this might not be the first time this happens, twins with different birthdays are rare, and the chance of twins being born in different years is about one in 2 million. These babies defied the odds from the moment they came into the world, now they can take that with them for the rest of their lives.

Imagine The Birthday Parties

Dr. Ana Abril Arias, who oversaw the delivery said that it was certainly one of the most memorable deliveries of their career. It's interesting thinking about how the twins will lead their lives after they've made such a remarkable entrance.

Twins often feel like they are in competition with one another, in an attempt to build their own identity and feel unique. Now they can have birthday parties a day apart and really feel like, despite their connection as twins, they're both still unique individuals.

Twins Make For Only 3% Of American Births

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are typically 120,000 twin births every year in the United States. The births make up just over 3 percent of all births, however, which is a considerably small percentage. Their uniqueness allows them to tap into abilities that help them form really strong bonds. They sometimes can even tap into abilities that the average person can't access. For instance, 40% of twins invent their own languages, some even say that they can almost read each other's minds. This could be due to the fact that twins start interacting in the womb at 14 weeks.

However, they also hold their differences. In fact, Identical twins have different fingerprints and twins can even have completely different skin tones.

Stranger Things Can Happen

The year is just beginning and yet newborn babies made headlines within seconds of coming into this world. It puts into perspective how quickly someone's existence can make an impact, and how simple that impact can be. This year, ask yourself how you can make your mark, and watch its ripple effects.
