We’ve all heard the terms narcissism and gas-lighting everywhere lately, but how do you really know if someone in your life is a narcissist? (Hint: We ALL have narcissistic tendencies at times!)

Today’s episode is Part One of a two-part series on recovering from narcissistic family systems, and Julie sat down with expert Pamela Madsen to discuss how to redefine your role, set boundaries, and heal your relationship with yourself if you have experienced the difficulties of having a person with abusive narcissistic behaviors in your life.
