Sabrina is joined today by Dr. Ramani, a clinical psychologist, who describes narcissism as a maladaptive personality style rooted in low empathy, appearance focus, and a need for admiration, with insecurity and shame at its core. Children of narcissistic parents often experience guilt, anxiety, and low self-esteem. Sabrina speaks to her personal experiences with a narcissistic parent. Dr. Ramani dives into the nuanced topic of knowing when to walk away as an adult child which involves setting boundaries, understanding the individual’s journey, and prioritizing therapy. Co-parenting with a narcissist presents immense challenges, requiring prioritization of children's well-being and seeking professional support. Overall, the impact of narcissistic behavior on familial relationships and psychological well-being necessitates understanding, boundary setting, and therapeutic intervention.
