First, you wouldn't be watching this video if you were a narcissist because you would have no intention to improve in any way at all, and everything is really everybody else's problem or concern. So the number one challenge with the narcissist is that, they don't even recognize that they have a problem. They don't think that there's anything wrong with them, and there's certainly no room for improvement or growth because the world revolves around them and they're wonderful as they are.

You just can't take a narcissist personally. It's not about you. When you're in a relationship with a narcissist it's about them. So you have to have a level of acceptance, and you also have to have a sense of humor about itm because if you don't laugh about it you will probably end up crying about it. The narcissist just thinks about themselves. They don't think about you. They don't care to consider your needs or your wants. The only role that you play in the narcissists life is to serve the narcissist. Beyond that you are useless. It's really about knowing your worth and being able to look at the narcissist and for me personally I've had the privilege of knowing my share of narcissists in my lifetime and what I've found is that when I learned to not take their behavior so personally, I was actually able to have a tremendous sense of compassion for them because they really miss out on those deep and meaningful connections that we all long for. Being in a relationship with a narcissist is very difficult. But, being a narcissist is a very lonely place too.
