In this episode, we will dive deeper into a question that I get asked a lot – am I turning into a narcissist? We will talk about why we start to notice some narcissistic behaviours in ourselves after going through an abusive relationship with a narcissist. 

What You Will Learn In This Episode:

– Why those victimised by a narcissist start exhibiting narcissistic behaviour

– What the mirror neurons are, and their role in our behaviour

– Why narcissists won’t start mirroring codependency

– How looking from a trauma-informed lens can help us understand our own narcissistic traits 

No narcissist will ever question their narcissistic behaviour, they will blame others for their actions. The best thing we can do when we detect narcissistic behaviour in ourselves is to step back, and look at it from a place of curiosity, compassion, courage, and clarity. If we are genuinely asking ourselves – am I a narcissist? – we most certainly are not.
