Hey, everyone, my name is Introverted_Wanderer. I was inspired to start a blog about my own experience with family estrangement, after reading the stories of other people who have also gone through this journey. In addition, through the years, I have read a lot about narcissism, specifically in the context of peoples experiences with narcissistic parents and other family members. Reading the blogs of Adult Children of Narcissists (ACoNs) made me realize that family estrangements and narcissism often go hand in hand. In my case, none of my immediate family members are highly narcissistic, in my opinion, but I do believe that my paternal relatives do display highly narcissistic traits, and I have been estranged from most of them since 2008. In this blog, I will discuss the process of estranging from my paternal relatives, and also my experience with estrangement issues within my immediate family.
