Narcissistic Homoerotica In Heterosexual Female Friendship

7/2/2024
In honor of National Pride Month, I explore how toxic homoerotica shows up in heterosexual female friendships. Women who develop a romantic attraction towards their friend, become obsessed with their friend's life. They are jealous of their friend's romantic interest, and other friends. They want to keep their friend all to themselves, and will lash out towards their friend if there is a threat of anyone else becoming the priority. A good movie for reference is Single White Female.

No Contact, Low Contact, and Grey Rock Methods with Narcissists

4/12/2024
In this podcast, I discuss the difference between no-contact, low-contact, and grey rocking with a narcissist. I take a deep dive into when it's appropriate for you to go no-contact versus low-contact. I also discuss the parameters around grey rocking and why it shouldn't be used long-term unless absolutely necessary. None of these methods should be used to punish the abuser or to get them to contact you more.
