Growing up in a rough childhood with a narcissistic mother w

Growing up in a rough childhood with a narcissistic mother who was a single parent of 5 and being sheltered from my childhood has really stunted my growth emotionally, now I’m at a point where I was reliving my past unintentionally trying to make up for loss time, now I’m 34 years old but my emotions is immature, my thinking capacity is not at a mature level, despite of someone not getting a chance to have a childhood, how do you move pass it and become emotionally matured?

Learning about PTSD , disassociation and what our triggers might be and possibly avoid them, help us to be more grounded in the present with healthy activities. having access to medical and mental heal care are extremely beneficial. the support of others in recovery also provides additional help. Many of us here can empathize with having had a rough childhood and a narc. Parent. Best wishes!
