Narcissists in the workplace are very common. We have all met someone like this in our professional lives at some point. They often can check the box on all of these traits:
If you are divorced and are now forced to co-parent with your ex-spouse who you believe has Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) then this is for you.
There is nothing more hurtful than someone giving you the silent treatment. If you have struggled with codependency throughout your life than the idea of someone ignoring you or not wanting to talk with you about a situation can eat away at you. The question most people want to know is “why” and “how”.
If you have ever been cheated on you will know just how painful of an experience it is to go through. The heartbreak that you feel when someone betrays you can feel unbearable at times. What becomes even more painful is when the person that was supposed to love you, then leaves you for another woman.
I often get questions asking me to describe a female narcissist. While most narcissists are men, women can most certainly have the same personality disorder. Their abusive approach is just slightly different even though they share similar qualities as a male narcissist.
The idea of a healthy relationship is something that we do not often think about because why would we ever get into an unhealthy one? Before entering into any type of relationship, you have to understand who you are and what you want. You must know your values. Without this, you will not be able to establish your standards and what you deserve in someone. You also have to be content and happy with where you are in life.
As we are growing up, we are made to feel that what we think or how we feel does not matter and because of that we develop the need to please. You learned to avoid what you want and instead, please others. With this, when you say no, you feel guilt.
As time goes on and days pass, there is a constant struggle that women and men of all ages deal with…self-love.
Why do we have such a hard time with loving ourselves? Why is it something that we cannot seem find the answer to?
