Living with a Narcissist?

Living with a narcissist may be difficult. Through almost 40 years working with people where one of the parties is a narcissist, I learned that psychologists and other mental health professionals have a lot more knowledge about people with narcissistic attitudes or tendencies than I will.  Yet, I have worked with couples in divorce mediation where one of the parties is a narcissist nd have found ways to help lead them to a reasonable settlement of their divorce issues.

Many people remain in relationships and marriages with a narcissistic partner. They may be vibrant rewarding relationships or they may be difficult at every step. Yet, sometimes, it is difficult to leave a narcissistic relationship because financial control issues, love, children, religious beliefs or fear of the unknown.

Those who remain in a narcissistic relationship or who plan on separating and wondering how to negotiate in divorce mediation with a narcissist need help and advice. Through my reading, I found this article in Psychology Today originally posted on October 23, 2017. The article written by Ellinor Greenberg, Ph.D., and found at provides an explanation of the factors involved as well as a number of strategies that may be helpful in maintaining the relationship or negotiating out of one.

Instead of sharing the article on Facebook, I am providing a link for the reader without endorsing the article (as I have no special education to ratify or criticize the information).  Ywet it seems highly infomrative. 

I believe it is a very good read and provides a focus not often found.
