Narcissism isn’t just a personality type that shows up in advice columns; it’s actually a set of traits classified and studied by psychologists. But what causes it? And can narcissists improve on their negative traits? W. Keith Campbell describes the psychology behind the elevated and sometimes detrimental self-involvement of narcissists.

Narcissists like to take power over others. They are bullies and use dominant behavior against those they are wishing to control. This video will help you maintain your power by learning some key phrases that allow you to hold onto yourself when there are those you know who are trying to manipulate and control you. 1) I am sorry you feel that way. 2) I can accept your faulty perception of me. 3)I have no right to control how you see me. 4) I guess I have to accept how you feel. 5) Your anger is NOT my responsibility. These key phrases can help you disarm an intellectual narcissist and or anyone who keeps trying to bully you into believing that you should cater to the emotional needs of a narcissistic person. Children of narcissistic parents, who are now suffering from codependency symptoms, may be struggling to learn how to love themselves after narcissistic abuse.  Narcissists tend to attract people pleasers, or codependent personalities.  Because codependents are eager to please, because they seek outside validation, they are easy targets for narcissistic lovers, and friends.  It is not easy to learn how to love yourself after narcissistic abuse, but with the right codependency recovery tools, it is possible.  It is even possible to find love after codependency.
