You may notice that the format of this show has changed a bit, and I’m doing more psychological content. It puts me in a more contemplative place. I’m thinking a lot more about the issues that I hear about from my clients and from the folks in my Facebook group or the ones that email me.
I’ve done a couple episodes about narcissists you might have in your life – parents, romantic partners, etc. I got an email from someone asking how you know if someone is just self-centered or actually has narcissistic personality disorder. And it’s true that the symptoms can look pretty similar. So today I’m talking about the difference between the two. Plus, if you fear you’re self-centered, I’m talking about how you can get better at being focused more on others.
