Narcissism vs Self Love
What does the term narcissist/narcissism mean to you? In modern, everyday use, when we refer to narcissism we are referring to someone who is arrogant, self absorbed or haughty. This person usually has no empathy and cares little for others. Narcissism should not be confused with the term self love.
Self love, which we talk about here on this site and in the Bliss Coaching Program, is defined as the ability to have a healthy love and self respect for oneself. This type of self love doesn't preclude the ability to love others, but allows one to connect more with the world and experience a richer, more fulfilling life.
Here are six common traits of narcissism/narcissist individuals:
According to the Mayo Clinic narcissistic personality disorder is defined as: “Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of ultra confidence lies a fragile self-esteem that's vulnerable to the slightest criticism."
"A narcissistic personality disorder causes problems in many areas of life, such as relationships, work, school or financial affairs. You may be generally unhappy and disappointed when you're not given the special favors or admiration you believe you deserve. Others may not enjoy being around you, and you may find your relationships unfulfilling.”
Do you know someone like this? Or have you dated a narcissist? What was the experience like? I know from personal experience how dreadful this can be!
One of the sad consequences of being in a relationship with a narcissist is they must strip you of any self esteem in order to feel they are #1. It takes time to reclaim your true self, but it is so worth it. This is why self love is so important in healing these types of wounds and helping you find your way back to your true authentic self. You can reclaim the joy of a healthy, happy balanced life again.
If you haven’t left yet, know that healing takes time, but YOU can feel whole again. If you have already left, congratulations for coming out the other side in this difficult experience.

Did you read it? If you just skimmed it, go back and read it again.
Let it soak in.
Does it reflect your situation?
There is so much wisdom in this small picture!
So many people are in the mist of struggle right this second because they are stubbornly clinging on to an outdated belief system. Hoping for something better to fall into their lives and willing to continue suffering until it does. That isn't a judgement, it's a fact. Are you one of them?
Are you experiencing reoccurring storms?
The past situations come up to teach us a lesson, show us the way, yeah? They were not MEANT to be your lifestyle. Did you know, you do not have to accept these challenges? You can choose to move past these routines and into something better. I have assisted hundreds of people make this very transition and can help you too.
I can help you explore outside your comfort zone and assist you as you rebuild your life. You have immense strength and potential, you just need someone to show you how to tap into it. The Bliss coaching program is about empowering you to live the life you dream of. You can awaken to love, happiness and peace. You can be excited about life!

Girl Boss Tip #33
Smart women support each other.
Surround yourself with smart, kind women who cheer you on. Leave the gossiping, back stabbing girls behind. If they can't understand the concept of goals that do not involve getting with men, then they will never understand you.
So no judgement, bless them...but move on till you find your true "tribe", You will know these ladies by the support and encouragement they offer and true, grownup friendship.
How is your Saturday going? I saw clients today, ran errands and then went for a hike and meditation. The weather was perfect!
Bet you can guess this is one of my favorite spots to meditate. It's not that far from my office, but it's a million miles away from stress!
There are so many ways you can work self care into your life. Why not spend sometime outside in nature today? Let the quite calmness help you relax and move back into balance.
Wishing you a peaceful weekend~
I know it's not Sunday yet, but I wanted to give you a bit of time to consider starting a Sunday Self-love ritual. Self love isnt just about taking a bubble bath, lighting a scented candle or getting your hair done. Self love is also about taking the time to work on you. Making time to meditate, exercise and eat better, as well as doing the deep work. The deep, emotional self healing that is the foundation of true Self-love.
Sometimes this deep work is about writing, journaling and crying. Sometimes it about admiting past mistakes, taking the lesson and letting it go. Sometime its about learning to forgive yourself, even when you don't think you can.
If you want to be a healer, a leader or just a better version of you, then this is were you start. Mark out one day a week. Sunday is good, but maybe your Thursday is better, just commit to one day a week. That's only 4 days a month, you can find the time to care for yourself. Because honestly you will be better at work, better at home and better for the people that need you if you are calm and refreshed.
Put everything thing else on hold, so hire that sitter now, finish up that big work project, and get the shopping done ahead of time. Let your family know your intentions and don't even think about turning on the TV, you have a date with yourself.
It takes courage and support as much as anything else to be successful.
That's why I'm here, to help you.
Let's work together to get your dreams off the ground and flourishing. I can help keep you motivated and moving forward. I bring decades of successful business ownership to the table, not from theory but from experience. Let me share what I've learned the hard way, saving you so much of the struggle and crap that causes so many other people to fail.
Success is not as elusive as you have been taught. As a matter of fact it's right around the corner, waiting on you to catch up!
Why not schedule a free introductory call? Let's see if we are a good match and if you are really serious about being successful. What do you have to loose?
Success is closer than you think-
