    What if the your partner is narcissistic and therefore cannot be an adult?

      hi Martin, most people have narcissistic tendencies (because we were all babies at one point and the world did completely revolve around us, in our infant pre-verbal unconscious minds); and then there are people with a pathological personality structure, like Narcissistic Personality Disorder (which is caused by extreme attachment wounds from a very young age). It can be very very very difficult to be in relationship with individuals with this kind of personality, and sometimes very hard to find compassion and empathy. I imagine getting third-party support from a Relationship Coach or Couples Therapist would be your best bet. I hope this helps and take good care,thanks for listening.

  2. Vanessa Kerr

    Jayson, I found you right as my marriage was falling apart, and we were filling for divorce 2.5 years ago. I have been an avid listener and follower. I wanted to tell you that this episode with Teri and the holdiday drama hotline was one of favorites!! I have just begun to understand my own co-dependency so implementing boundaries especially with my family of orgin was a big task at Thanksgiving. I felt so courageous setting boundaries and saying/acting in ways I have never done before! Thank you so much!

      hi Vanessa, this is wonderful to hear, I’m so glad the school has been a source of support for you. Thanks for listening and growing =)
