475: Is It Possible to Assuage Narcissistic Rage? | Feedback Friday
Your significant other of six years has a narcissistic personality disorder and an unhealthy relationship with alcohol. Even when sober, she can turn on a dime and engage in narcissistic rage, which includes venomous, disrespectful rants and the destruction of expensive artwork. It seems obvious that you should break up with her, but she's unemployable and unable to care for herself, and living arrangements for whoever leaves would be difficult to secure in the midst of the pandemic. What's your next move? We'll do what we can to help assuage narcissistic rage and more here on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: jordanharbinger.com/475 On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: * What are you avoiding just because the desired outcome would take longer than you'd like? * What do you do when your significant other ruins your stuff in fits of narcissistic rage but breaking up is logistically difficult? [Thanks to friend and therapist Kim Seltzer for helping us field this one!] * You're excited about becoming a first-time parent, but you're worried it won't allow you the time to do your full-time job and pursue a career in competitive golf. Does this make you a selfish jerk? * An opening for advancement has come up at your company, but you're not sure you're ready for it just yet. Should you go for it anyway, or wait until you've got more experience under your belt and hope that opportunity knocks again? * While you're not currently disabled, you do have multiple sclerosis that will gradually incapacitate you to some degree over time. Are you obligated to disclose this on a job application? [Thanks to once-adversary, now-friend, and attorney Jeremy Golan for helping us with this one!] * Have any questions, comments, or stories you'd like to share with us?
