32. The difference between narcissism and self-love

This week’s episode of You Are Infinitely Loved is an important one because we’re discussing the key differences between narcissism and self-love. What’s interesting is that these two things are so completely different and yet many people fear that if they become “too self-loving” or they spend too much time focused on themselves, they will become narcissistic. We can guarantee you that this won’t happen, and we hope that by the time you’ve listened to this episode, you’ll be convinced about just how different they are. These days, the words narcissism and narcissist get thrown around quite a lot, and there’s a lot of us who may be unfairly labeling people as narcissists, so we wanted to get into the details and really explore the definition of narcissism. Lindsay cracks open the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) and we go through the official definition of narcissistic personality disorder line by line. If you’re struggling with narcissistic personality disorder, or you know someone who is and it’s having a negative impact on your life, then we encourage you to reach out to a therapist and get the help and healing that you need. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/you-are-infinitely-loved/message
