Valentine's Day Gift

Valentine’s Day means different things to different people.  Some dismiss it is as nothing more than a Hallmark holiday while others have grand expectations of what their loved ones should do to express their love on the fourteenth of February.

Either way you choose to look at it, I’d like to give you an opportunity to share the gift that keeps on giving with your loved ones…..knowledge.  Knowledge is power as we always say.  I’ve been writing about narcissism for close to ten years now and what never ceases to amaze me is the lack of knowledge out there on this topic.

The Twilight Zone of Narcissism

I watched this Sunday morning's panel of "Meet the Press" discuss our President-Elect's latest tantrum on Twitter and was baffled by what seems to be a common suggestion from many - to accept Trump's abnormal behavior as normal.

Normalizing Narcissism

I haven't posted a blog in almost 3 years. In that time, it has been wonderful to see so many of you build awareness on narcissism through social media, word of mouth and even by writing your own books - Congrats to Shahida Arabi and Becky Joyce Reed on their books and a HUGE thank you and congrats to Goldie for continuing to help so many folks here through her one-on-one coaching!!!!
