If you honour your feelings you honour your boundaries

"Teal explains that the most important thing when it comes to understanding narcissism is to separate self-love from selfishness. Most people think that narcissism is an extreme form of self-love. It is not. In fact, narcissism has nothing to do with self-love. It has to do with someone who perceives an extreme lack of self-sustaining resources, like love. Compassion is necessary when interacting with narcissists. Narcissists hold some of the most painful beliefs and therefore live some of the most painful lives you can find on this earth. People often think narcissists have a high level of self-esteem. They do not. In fact, their life is a perpetual search for self worth and self-view gratification because they are very insecure.
In this episode of Ask Teal, Teal explains narcissism in depth. She then explains how a narcissist can find healing and what to do if you have attracted a narcissist into your life."

A narcssism needs to change beliefs about the hostility of world and their own self worth and develop an abundance mentality

Questins to ask if we wonder if there is a narcissist in our lives.

Is there reciprocity
Are you able to be your self?
Is there a sharing of vulnerability?
Do you trust person with your feelings?
Can your friend leave you empty or
Do they bring out best in you?
Is your friend accountable?
Are you allowed to have healthy boundaries?
Do you care about each other?
Does friend exploit you or value you?
