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.

Whether you are the daughter, son, sibling, spouse, ex-spouse or partner of a narcissistic personality you have been victimized by one of these psychologically toxic individuals. Through their contaminated personalities with strong negative qualities of cruelty, dismissiveness, chronic lying, deception, exploitation and plans they execute to turn your family and friends against you through pernicious gossip and innuendo, the narcissistic personality wreaks havoc and horrendous duress for which he or she is never held accountable 

Most people don't undersatnd how one individual can be so callous and cruel. When those victimized by narcissists tell their story to close relatives and friends, they are not believed. or the person will say: "Get over it." "You are exaggerating." "Where are you getting all of these irrational ideas about him/her." And on and on. 

It is nauseating to watch the level of delusion in which many people live. They want to believe the best about narcisistic personalities---Really? Do they know anything about this severe psychopathology? No! Do they want to find out? No! They want "happy talk" and nothing more. I suggest that if you have been victimized by a high level narcissist and you are in the process of recovery, keep your distance from those who don't believ you. It is not worth all the torment, lack of understanding and absence of respect that you go through with those who make no effort to comprehend the level of your duress. 

Focus on your healing process. Associate with people you can trust and will continue to be supportive and watch you grow. Give yourself tremendou credit for reclaiming and rescuing yourself on every level: physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual. 

Practice self care in the ways that work best for you: rest and sleep, rediscovering your creativity, nouriishing food, good hydration, meditation in the way that you understand this process, spending time with Nature. 

You are moving forward along the pathways of your evolving true self with all of your creative gifts, embracing your individuality and rediscovering your magnificent freedom.
