Navigating Narcissistic Relationships

Navigating Narcissistic Relationships

Dr. Ramani Durvasula is a licensed clinical psychologist and expert on the topics of narcissistic personality disorder and narcissistic abuse. In her book, “Should I Stay or Should I Go?: Surviving a Relationship with a Narcissist” Dr. Durvasula outlines practical advice for individuals currently in a relationship with a narcissist. Informed by clinical experience and wisdom, Dr. Durvasula writes the following on her favored approach for handling narcissists, whether they be family members, your partner, or friend:

This book is predicated on one simple secret: Narcissists are not going to change. That simple premise, I hope, will be a lifechanger, because for many readers, it may pull their attention off of blaming themselves, feeling anxious, doubting themselves, frustrating themselves by working on communication and reading piles of relationship advice (that presumes that the other person is actually listening), or waiting for a bus that is never going to appear. Relationships with narcissists are held in place by hope of a “someday better,” with little evidence to support it will ever arrive.
