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.

Narcissists are compulsive liars; they can't help themselves. This is not an excuse for their abominable behavior. It is part of their psychopathology. Narcissists pend their days in a state of delusion, a world of their making. 

One of the chief ways the narcissist reaches his goals is through lying - overt and covert lies. He/she often bad mouths others, makes efforts to ruin their characters and professional status to move themselves foreward up the ladder. They have no compunctions about lying to everyone. They lie to their spouses all of the time, to their children, promising them they will spend time with them and then making excuses at the last minutes. They are very keen at inventing "truths" intricate stories out of whole cloth. 

Once the narcissist has established power in the world he continues with his lies. He says the opposite of what he does. 

This works for the high and mighty these days. We live in a highly narcissistic age where these people are running most of the show. Learn everything you can about the narcissistic personality.
