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.

Perception is everything to the narcissist. There are men and women who discover and fall for their mirror image. They are lost in the spell of its beauty and impeccability. The style, confident manner, social sophistication bring these two people together. The narcissistic pair have the same goals to make it in the material world, to become part of an elite group that is lionized and has special privileges. They worship indulgence and obsessively find pleasure in creative external environments of luxury and excess.  

Narcissistic couples are exceedingly restless with  constant trips and treks. Socializing is their ego fueled addiction. Bragging about their power and perfection is endless. They look at you, finding you inadequate and avert their eyes. You didn't pass their test. You pass mine. You are authentic, creative, compassionate and have a conscience. 

Look beyond the glitter, entourages, perfect environments, perfect faces to recognize that there is nothing that these people have to offer you. Understand the narcissistic personality, their duplicity and betrayals, the way they make other people's lives intolerable. 


Take the simpler road. Listen to your intuition. Get the rest and sleep that you need, eating nourishing food, get the exercise that works for you, be creative your way, and recognize the beauty and power of your authentic self.
