How to deal with Narcissistic relatives
It can be so challenging and confronting to have to deal continually with someone with Narcissistic wounding because they happen to be in our family! Each family system is different, however there are some steps to take to help with managing yourself through what can be an extremely challenging dynamic.
We need to understand the strategies employed by our particular narcissistic and which of those strategies we are most reactive to.
Our best opportunity is to not look to change the narcissist but rather to change our reactions in relation to dealing with them. I truly hope this episode helps you to form an approach to better achieve that.
I would also like to acknowledge the work of Relationship expert Jerry Wise whose ideas helped contribute to this episode and Feedspot for nominating the Sean Healy "Tools" and Emergence Training as one of the top 15 podcast resources on the net in relation to Narcissism.
