I'm excited to release the first in this series of unseen video snippets, where I share some bitesize pieces of information on the subject of narcissism. The paperback version of my critically acclaimed book Rethinking Narcissism is out on July 5th, so if this subject interests you subscribe below to receive updates as we countdown to the release!
"My most basic definition of unhealthy narcissism is an addiction to feeling special. It is an attempt to cope with the fear of depending on others in healthy ways. There’s lots of ways to cope with that feeling - I’m going to get into that when I talk about parenting next, lots of ways to cope with that. Unhealthy narcissism or an addiction to feeling special is just one and you can choose from a range of possibilities for how you can soothe yourself to feel special."
