Winter is finally here, in the small village on the outskirts of Newcastle, where I live with my teenage son, and our two dogs Maggie and kizzy.
Every morning I walk my dogs along a country lane beside my home.
Today was no different, apart from the fact that there had been a really hard frost through the night.
Therefore I was able to take some wonderful shots of the natural beauty, on a cold and frosty morning.
My mind wandered as it is want to do, to my daughter Danielle who is also a single parent to two wonderful little boys Ollie and Jaxon.
Danielle has been struggling recently because of the narcissistic personality of her children’s father, and other selfish family members, who are not pulling their weight in the child rearing department.
It takes a village to raise a child, so how come it’s ok to leave one person struggle to do it alone ?
My grandchildren’s father has decided that he didn’t really want to be a father any more, and spends all of his spare time thinking of ways to make this a reality.
He spends an inordinate amount of time googling ‘ways to avoid paying child support’ for the two children that he brought into the world, and the rest of his time finding excuses as to why he can’t see them.
Two beautiful little boys who are without a father figure in their life, all because their father is narcissistic.
If you knew how selfish your partner was before you had children with them, would you still do it ?
Selfishness has come to play a huge part in society to the point that it is now seen as acceptable.
Then you have the Narcissistic parents, who also decided that parenting wasn’t really for them, but they still continued with the farce, doing whatever makes them happy, at the expense of their own children’s happiness.
Unfortunately Narcissistic people are producing damaged children the whole world over. Costing the tax payers millions in child support, alimony, and supplementing the finances that the narcissistic individual thinks they shouldn’t have to pay. and shirking the responsibilities that they no longer have time for.
Stretching the national health service to bursting point with the rise in mental health issues in children alone, not including the children who are still trying to heal well into adulthood, from having survived Narcissistic parenting skills.
So should Narcissistic people have children ?
If you cannot love anybody more than yourself, parenting is not for you. Stay childless for everybody’s sake, especially the children’s.
Save a life today, do not procreate selfishly love Betty x
