    Should I Feel Sorry for the Narcissist?

    We’re Talking About: I’m frequently asked by survivors if instead of going no contact, they should try and understand the hows and whys the narcissist in their life became that way… and if they should stick around to give the narcissist the love, compassion, and patience they seem to lack in their lives.

Insightful!

Wow, so much info, in a reasonable amount of time. I love the way you are able to accurately articulate the right amount of words needed, in a fairly short amount of time. I have already listened to 3 episodes, and I can’t wait to hear more. The other great thing about these being under 30 minutes is, I can bookmark them and listen to them over and over, while I’m in the different stages of recovering from a divorce with a narcissist spouse. Thank you so much for starting this podcast and please continue!

Thank you

Thank you for giving me concrete skills to deal with a lifetime of narcissistic abuse. This podcast has been a lifesaver. I highly recommend.

Love the coffee pot analogy

This podcast is a great place to start if you feel like you have been replaced. I recommend looking for a meetup group for narc abuse survivors. Find a group of people who understand your situation. Not everyone knows about narcissism or narc abuse. Choose you....
