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.

Hubris in man is ever-present. Wherever there is pride there is hubris. The story of the angels cast into Hell for their hubris remains with us. 

The word hubris comves from the ancient Greek, meaning extreme pride and extreme overconfidence. 

Hubris is outrageous. Aristotle defined hubris as shaming the victim

The high level narcissist gains pleasure from his/her hurbristic acts. He/she is not called out on these dark deeds if they hold sway and power, if they are high placed sociall and economically. 

Those who are married to or partnered with or children of hubristic high level narcissists are victims of their extreme psychopathology. 

You spend years and decades married to one of these individuals go through a series of leaving them, returning and continuing the cycle to the incresing stress, psychophysiological imbalances, mood and anxidty disorders, chronic insomnia, re-traumatization from childhood. 

When high level narcissists are shamelessly bad they will never admit they are wrong. All that matters is getting their way every time. When cornered they double and triple down on their lies, dceits, manipulations, exploitations and gain pleasure from domonating their spouses, ex-spouses, children, siblings business associates. Unlike you they have no shame---never did and never will. They are always right no matter their horrific misdeeds and betrayals.

They draw around them a golden circle of followers and hangers on who are loyal to them no matter what the issue. They feed off of the high level's extreme pride, economic largesse and social power.

The high level narcissist has no reason to change. This is a fixed personality disorder. 

When you awaken and decide that you must separate out from the high level narcissist, this is a great moment of insight and mental and psychological clarity. 

With great perseverance, wisdom and resolve you recognize that you are entitled to move forward as a separate, unique individual who deserves the full use of all of your creative gifts, to develop relationships based on self respect and integrity. . You are moving into the parasympathetic pathways of restoration, healing and the fulfillment of your original, true, creative self.
