Pin­na­cle Book Achieve­ment Award win­ning It’s Just Your Imag­i­na­tion explores what it’s like to grow up with a moth­er who insists on putting her­self at the cen­ter of every sit­u­a­tion. This book gives the read­er the tools to live a pain-free life, if the read­er was raised by a nar­cis­sis­tic moth­er. This first-hand account of the author’s per­son­al jour­ney offers a vic­ar­i­ous under­stand­ing of mater­nal nar­cis­sism and its impli­ca­tions. With the aid of sup­port­ing psy­cho­log­i­cal stud­ies, the read­er will learn how they, too, can over­come the chal­lenges of grow­ing up in a house­hold dri­ven by nar­cis­sism. It‘s Just Your Imag­i­na­tion was the author’s mother’s mantra through­out her life. When­ev­er the author con­front­ed her about her abu­sive and manip­u­la­tive behav­ior toward her, she always had the same response: It’s just your imag­i­na­tion.” If this sounds famil­iar, the author invites you to join her on the jour­ney through grief, loss, under­stand­ing, and for­give­ness, and to find the heal­ing and per­son­al strength that await us at the end of the path.
