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 https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/understanding-narcissism/201710/the-survival-guide-living-narcissist 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.
