Dating Again, Part 4: Letting Go of the Codependent – Narcissist – Borderline Fairy Tale [Video]


Part Four of the Dating Again video series discusses the common never-going-to-come-true fairy tales some people have constructed about love and relationships since childhood. If you’re family of origin was dysfunctional and toxic, odds are you have some faulty beliefs about love and relationships. If your belief system involves loving a broken person well, or a chaos monster into normal, loving human being, it’s time to let go of it and adapt a healthier view of relationships that’s much more likely to come true.

Boundaries Repel Narcissists and Borderlines, Part 1: The Golden Rule


Being able to identify red flags or behavioral warning signs that your new love interest is too good to be true isn’t enough. You’ve got to have healthy boundaries. If you grew up in a dysfunctional family that didn’t instill healthy boundaries, instituting boundaries now will likely be difficult. It is critical to do, however, if you want to become healthier and have healthier relationships.

Dating Again, Part 3: Learning to Appreciate the Mundane


This is Part 3 of the Dating Again series (Part 1 and Part 2). Unhealthy, dysfunctional and/or abusive relationships are often characterized by highs and lows, emotional intensity, hyper-arousal (i.e., the fight, flight or freeze response) and feelings of emptiness, numbness and worthlessness. In this video, I explain the necessity of learning to appreciate calmness, stability, predictability, a consistent sense of well-being and emotional security, or the mundane. Healthy relationships aren’t emotional roller coasters.

Healthier partners don’t activate childhood feelings of worthlessness and feeling separate from humanity.
