I regret a lot of things about my narcissistic father’s death, but all the things which I regret were things over which I had no control. Contrary to his repeated manipulative predictions, I regret nothing about finally standing up for myself and insisting that I be treated with respect and decency.
I wish I could have kept the respect and love I had had for him when I was a child. I wish I could have seen to it that his death came with dignity. But the things which led to that lonely death in a hospital room with a stranger were all of his own choosing.
I regret much about the things he chose for himself, but I have absolutely no regrets about finally walking away from his repeated abuse. I just wish he could have understood the truth about himself.
This is the next in a series of videos dealing with issues that come up for me to think about as I write a book about my childhood experience of growing up with a narcissistic father.
