This topic is such an important part of my life experience.
I open up in a very personal way to share my story, and what I’ve learned about freeing myself from the grips of narcissistic relationships.
A Bit About Narcissism
I realize the interview is long, so here are some of the key points:
What’s the best way to handle a narcissist?
Why do the 3 ‘usual’ ways of handling a narcissist fail?
Why do I call narcissists ‘story snatchers’ and how does that impact people who are in relationship with a narcissist?
What is the only ‘antidote’ to being in the grips of a narcissistic relationship?
Why and how does that antidote work?
Why are there 2 systems that cannot communicate with each other?

For all who feel that they had to ‘perform’ in order to ‘win’ a parent’s love, Alice Miller’s The Drama of the Gifted Child is profoundly insightful.
For those who have had that experience, I predict that it will feel uncannily as if Miller is speaking to you alone, in the intimate knowledge of what you have experienced. I highly recommend it to those who wish to understand their experience with narcissists and come closer to their own truth.
I am so moved if my journey can help others who find themselves in a similar situation. It gives meaning and purpose to my experience, which is extremely gratifying. In the interview I place narcissism on a spectrum of behavior which, at worst, includes bullying and abuse, so there is much to be learned in a closer examination of this topic.
I’d love to read your comments.
