Trump is fond of saying he is a counter-puncher. Truth be told - although when it comes from the Donald it's hard to separate fiction from fact - Trump is more of a sucker-puncher.
Divorce can suck, but sexless marriages with narcissists suck worse.
Typically when we think about downsizing, we think of eliminating things like material items that no longer serve us or that we've outgrown or no long...
The advanced version of healthy narcissism would be to realize that your happiness and self-worth is actually tied into spreading love to the world, especially people who care about you and support you.
I'm going to share a two-pronged approach for getting your message through to a person with narcissistic tendencies.
