Warning Signs of Narcissism in Toxic Relationships with Kim Saeed – Identifying Codependency and Narcissism in Relationships
What are the red flags of narcissism? Today Kim Saeed and I will cover them for you in detail.

Our self-talk creates reality. And we know all about self-talk psychology, don’t we? But it’s easy to understand in theory. In real life, it’s a lot harder to implement – and to stick with. Even when we think we’ve got it all handled. Trust me – I know what I’m talking about here.
Invalidation is part of codependency and CPTSD. We have to validate OURSELVES.
