This year we had to watch it a little early since he was going out of town on the actual date. So we watched it last night while we were all putting together the last few touches for Betsy and Lori’s E-book Release Party for their book The Narcissist: A User’s Guide.
I couldn’t help but see the similarities between the self absorbed, narcissistic lead character in the movie and the narcissistic characters in the book.
It made me chuckle. It was a coincidence, but I think February 2 is the perfect day for the release of such a perfect book.
While in the movie, Phil Collins had the chance to relive one day over and over…and over…until he finally figured out that the secret to life is to put the needs of others before your own self-absorbed , insecure, sponge-like behavior, the typical Narcissist doesn’t get this chance.
They continue to inflict their manipulative insidious behavior on the unsuspecting worlds of those around them. And like the movie, the ones who are the most likely to want to help, be caring, or be supportive are the first ones in the line of fire.
The Narcissist: A User’s Guide is the perfect weapon to help arm us with the knowledge, the power and the strength to make us aware when this intricate dance of behavior begins.
Because make no mistake. It is a dance of two partners.. A Narcissist can’t ever dance alone. It is we- the ones who want to help, support, guide and love…who have to take the second look, know when enough help and love has been given and when enough support is enough.
And when too much can cost us more then we should be willing to give.
Take two…February 2…and a second look in your own mirror. Today is the day that you can download a free gift. You can get it right HERE. A gift of hard work from the heart from two women who have danced the dance, looked in the mirror, and made a choice to walk away.
And now they have written a guide to help you do the same thing. They want to give it to you for free.
There is no catch. But there is a request..this one from me. If you get any value from this book at all, do me a favor and pass it along. Spread the help, Spread the hope. Help us get the message out there.
There is life after the Narci. We have proof. We are living it.
