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.

The narcissist is above all, exploitive. He (she) is a consummate Taker. Bleak, hollow and empty inside is the highly damaged real self. The narcissist spends his days searching for narcissistic supplies in their innumerable forms: praise, adulation, monetary largesse, adoring followers, compliant partners, social status, impeccable images. 

For the narcissist you can always be replaced by someone else to whom he is attracted. 

Narcissists seek partners that fulfill different roles for them. It is not surprising that they two time or three time a partner or spouse without a scintilla of guilt or concern. Narcissists are gifted at the art of the lie. Omission or commission, lies slip out of their mouths with sheer deft and pseudo veracity. 

They love to juggle people like objects, going from one to another. this is thrilling to the narcissist and keeps his ego fully inflated with tremendous narcissistic supply to be fulfilled in so many human arenas. 

If you are married to or partnered with a narcissistic personality it is essential that you know:

1. Narcissists don't change. 2. They remain severely psychologically regressed at the age of two or younger. 3. Narcissists live in a delusional world of their making. 4. Living with narcissists wears you down, trapping you in the sympathetic zone, creating accumulative oxidative stress that can disrupt your endocrine and immune systems. 

Choose your well being and inner peace. You are a precious singular individual, insight, evolved, creative.

Stay grounded in your authentic self each day. Rest, sleep, eat nourishing food, exercise/move, listen to great music, use your many creative gifts, enjoy your presence each day.
