The Narcissistic Abuse & Trauma Recovery Podcast

Dec 1, 2020

Today I want to talk about two words that may conjure up very different concepts to you, and they are narcissism and confidence. We go over what narcissism is, what true confidence is, and how to tell a difference.

What You Will Learn In This Episode:

  • The difference between narcissistic traits and narcissistic personality disorder
  • The difficulties with diagnosing someone as a narcissist
  • Why we need to be careful when we use the word narcissist
  • Why we perceive narcissists as being confident and what lies beneath that confidence
  • Internal Family Systems and using Parts theory to understand narcissism
  • How to recognise truly confident persons

Because we can’t change narcissists, let’s get back to trying to live as much as possible as your true authentic self, as someone who is curious, calm, connected, courageous, creative, confident, compassionate, and lives with clarity. How much of your life are you living like that?
