But Maybe It’s Just Me

“You can teach a narcissist to show up on time, … but you can’t train them to listen once they get there.”
– Dr. Ramani Durvasula

“He loved to be so concentrated on.”
– Elizabeth Harrower, The Watch Tower

“I consider myself a fairly bright woman. So how was I fooled? Or was I fooled? Did I just tell myself stories? Did I have blinders on? Can’t I fix this? Maybe it’s me. Probably it’s me. No, I’m pretty sure it’s me. But am I sure? I used to be so sure. When did I stop being so sure? It  supposed to be easy. I can fix this.”

Sound familiar?

If you are dealing with a narcissist, there’s a pretty good chance that this is the conversation that you have with yourself on a regular basis. I know it’s one that I had years ago.

Sometimes reality is staring us right in the face and we don’t want to recognize or accept it. Sometimes things are out of our control and we need to walk away. How do we know? When will we know and what can we do?

The answers are something that my guest this week will give us insight into. She’s called the ‘Queen Beeing’ of Narcissism, Angie Atkinson. From personal knowledge and experience her story shows that no matter how long it takes, you can start a new journey and live a happy and fulfilled life. Sometimes it just takes us longer to get there.

Narcissism, sometimes so elusive to recognize. But is it or are we just not willing to accept this in those surrounding us? Angie calls herself ‘Queen Beeing’ for a reason. What would you do if the narcissist turned out to be your own parent? It took 35 years to discover and some harrowing times. Angie lets us into her personal journey of deception, ‘gaslighting’ and discovery. Hear how she saved herself and in turn is helping others.

I want to thank you for taking this journey with me. Season 1 of ‘Sylvia & Me‘ has been a journey that I never imagined taking. The extraordinary women have each been quite special. We’ll be back with Season 2 on Tuesday, January 21st with another great lineup of extraordinary women. Missed any of Season 1? Or want to listen again? Find it on our website or on your favorite podcast platform.

Oh, and if you know if an extraordinary woman, send her my way.
