Sometimes it feels like we live in the most narcissistic time in history. Selfies are a ‘thing’, social media encourages us to always share how great we are and reality TV thrives off of self promotion. What do you do when narcissistic traits appear in you or your partner? There’s hope on the way and it’s in the form of this podcast! Listen and learn how to deal with narcissistic habits in your partner or yourself.

In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Communicating with a partner who exhibits narcissistic traits.
  • Understanding the degrees of narcissistic habits and how to deal with various levels.
  • The value of having “yes” conversations instead of “but” conversations. This tip is a great tool for EVERY kind of relationship.
  • Examining where narcissistic traits come from and ways to manage them.
  • How narcissistic habits can reveal themselves as a listening disorder.
  • And much more!
