Brandon talks with Lotus about enmeshing with her controlling narcissistic parents. Lotus' story hits all the hallmarks of a romantic abuse/coercive control story, and as her story unfolds, the similarities between the manipulation tactics are impossible to deny. Lotus is 19 and the youngest person to be a guest on our show. However, she's very quotable throughout and wise beyond her years. ***TRIGGER WARING - Physical abuse is briefly discussed on the episode***
