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.

Like swarming bees or locusts blanketing the skies we re invaded by overbearing, in your face narcissistic families. It doesn't happen all the time but once is move than enough.

Mom, Dad, the Kids!

Overentitled narcissist have no sense of our private space. They spread themselves wherever and whenever they choose. They overwhelm you with their aggressive presence. They are loud and careless. 

Both parents and children are highly demanding and overentitled. They pepper you with impertinent, rude questions, one right after the other. They stare you down and scowl when you don't reply. These personality characteristics will only become more severe as the budding narcissists get older.

These children grow up with no frstration tolerance. They often scream and demand what they want in this moment. 

Narcissistic personalities are fixated on the externals: their residences, cars, clothing, trips, treks, social status. 

Narcissists are superficial, not deep or contemplative. When they converse it is about themselves, what they have, have done, what makes them superior. 

Create your own boundaries from these brash, brazen individuals. Remember who they are and who you are.

You can be polite and civil. Don't react to their aggressiveness, demanding questions. 

Remind yourself that no one can push you around or disturb your inner peace. You are an authentic individual who is evolving and creating. 

You have a quiet refuge inside that is protective and grounding. Embrace the beauty of your solitude and the boundless promise of your creativity.
