RELATIONSHIPS: Knowing a Narcissist with Dr Ramani
Hey Floss Fans, Happy Monday! This week it’s our second episode on relationships and Floss is joined by the incredible psychologist and narcissism expert Dr Ramani. She was one of the first people Floss wanted to speak to on this podcast, there is so much to take away from her expertise and advice. Relationships can be our greatest healer but also the place where we can be most damaged. Trust is hard, intimacy is scary and if you have a history of being burned you might have a heightened awareness of toxic relationships.
That being said, ‘toxic relationship’ has been used to refer to any number of things, and not always accurately. Today we’re focussing on a specific type of toxic relationship and that’s narcissistic abuse. Floss and Dr Ramani bring you an accessible conversation about gaslighting, love bombing and manipulation in the hopes that anyone who doesn’t know what narcissistic abuse is, has a blinding lightbulb moment. Have you experienced a lack of empathy from someone you love? Perhaps a grandiosity or a chronic need to seek out admiration from other people? Maybe you’ve made excuses for their chronic sense of entitlement? Dr Ramani reminds us to never ignore your gut instinct and is so blunt and to-the-point that she’s unintentionally hilarious. She is a licensed clinical psychologist and the author of the modern relationship survival manual "Should I Stay or Should I Go: Surviving a Relationship With a Narcissist" and "Don't You Know Who I Am?": How to Stay Sane in an Era of Narcissism, Entitlement, and Incivility” She’s also a TED speaker and youtuber who has made it her life mission to educate and inform people about the effects of narcissism.
