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!!!!

When It's All About Her - Surviving the Female Narcissist

Are you in a relationship with a woman obsessed with her image? Is she consumed with her needs to the exclusion of all others? Do you feel you can do nothing right in her eyes no matter what lengths you go to please her? Is it…ALL ABOUT HER…all the time?

Have you suddenly found yourself in a relationship with a woman you no longer recognize? A woman you no longer understand? Is she obsessed with her image and consumed with her needs to the exclusion of all others, including you? Does everything seem to be ALL ABOUT HER all the time?

If so, you may be in a relationship with a female narcissist. “It’s All About Her” will help you understand the personality of a narcissist and why a relationship with someone like this will eventually drain, exhaust and confound you.
