“Selfish people never cease to amaze me.” “Narcissistic people are unattractive, to say the least.” “Selfish people annoy me.”
These are statements I have heard in response to my community presentations on relationships. Quite frankly, I can agree with them all.
I see most of my clients on a weekly basis. The number one complaint they often present with is that someone they know (personally or professionally) is engaging in behavior that undermines them, overwhelms them, or undercuts their values. Discussion typically revolves around how to identify the behavioral patterns of people who display narcissistic and selfish behaviors. We also discuss ways to cope and redirect these people.
This article will discuss some of the tips I share with clients which are tips supported by research and my own experiences.
