The Narcissist in Your Life Podcast is hosted by Linda Martinez-Lewi, Ph.D., clinical expert on the narcissistic personality, psychotherapist and author. I offer in-depth analysis, strategies and practices for those psychologically and emotionally harmed and abused by toxic, predatory narcissistic personalities through my books: Recovering and Healing After the Narcissist and Freeing Yourself from the Narcissist in Your Life, international telephone consultations and global podcasts. I put the emphasis on helping individuals to access the calming, restorative parts of the parasympathetic body/mind systems that lead to healing, recovery, personal transformation and the evolution of your true, authentic self and your unique creative gifts.

Children of narcissistic parents endure many psychological deprivations and abuses. These parents are obsessed with themselves and their needs and desires.

Growing up in these homes from hell you were often ignored. When you did not mirror the narcissistic parent perfectly you were highly criticized, humiliated, treated with scorn, even revulsion. 

Growing up in this way you received no sense of self entitlement. The message you received was one of unworthiness, disrespect, disdain. 

As you move forward in your recovery and transformation from the narcissistic parent you learn the following:

Entitled to the expression of our feelings of joy, exciteman, spontaneity, humor, sadness, anger.

Self assertion as a unique individual with many unique creative gifts. 

Solitude, the capacity to be alone and experience inner peace. 

Feelings psychologically and emotionally secure within yourself. 

Expectations of being treated with respect.

Fully entitled to all of the fruits of your creativity.
