Yes there is a blessing in disguise in being the scapegoat of the family. You might not believe it to be true, but hear me out…
Since the narcissistic family runs on a rigid hierarchy, centred on the narcissistic parent, all of the shame ran down hill. If you were the scapegoat, the muddy rain waters collected and stagnated at the bottom with you.
The good news is you have a once in a generational chance to “drain the swamp”, meaning steering the family dynasty in a more healthy direction. Whether you believe in God or not, He has given you the ultimate test: heal yourself and change the world.
The scapegoat superpower
The scapegoat also has a superpower: the ability to imagine and create. Look at the various YouTubers who talk about narcissistic personality disorder, how many of them believe in the law of attraction? Almost all of them.
Why? Since narcissists are attracted to them by who they were, they changed spiritually and thus, unlocked the true “Secret”. Are you an artist? Writer? Singer? There’s your proof of your superpowers.
Pity the golden child.
Really. Pity them, for they’re stuck with the unconscious soul bond with their narcissistic parent: do as I say, when I say and I’ll sort you out with gifts. They have chosen to sacrifice their true self to cater to the whims and wishes of their mentally unstable parent. Just don’t mention what will happen to them when the parent dies, or the parent turns on them when the scapegoat leaves…
You, dear scapegoat, was handed a life sentence from birth, but have also been given the keys to freedom. All you have to do is pick yourself up, use them to free yourself and unlock the prison of your mind.
