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.

Shame is a dreadful, intolerable feelings, a visceral reaction that goes deep inside of us. Children carry their shame into adulthood, especially if they are raised by narcissistic parents. 

The covert narcissists projects shame into his/her small children from the beginning - telling them that are  always wrong, stupid, unworthy, worthless, bad. 

I have spoken to and heard from many of you who are in the process of healing the shame that has bound you and are on the road to rediscovering your true self. I honor your journey of courage and perseverance. Remember to put the emphasis on taking very goo care of yourself, pay close attention to your intuitive and unique creative gifts.
