"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

Malison - this is a great step in the process of becoming aware, and healing! Congratulations :cookiemonster:

I had a really good day at work, its a bright and sunny afternoon, and a friend has given me a copy of his book on Unconditional Love. :smile: What more could any NPDer want?

My friend called me last night and said he was depressed and just wanted to talk. I cannot recall him ever reaching out to me in such a way. :claphands:

This is one of those times when I'm posting in this thread more because I hope what's coming is going to be a positive. This weekend I'll be getting together with one of my sister's who I haven't seen in almost a year. The last time we were together there was considerable tension and anger. I feel that time has allowed me to let go of my anger and hopefully this is a time when I'll choose peace over conflict, love over fear.

I received some feedback I didn't really want to hear from someone and instead of letting my anger and fear rule me I allowed myself to hear their words with an understanding of love. Its kind of cool!

My reunion with my sister has been postponed because I have been invited and accepted an invitation for a dinner date this evening. I'm nervous as heck, this is my first real serious date in a long, long, long time. This is more than getting together to watch sports on tv. Wish me luck because I'll need it.

I allowed a friend to give me a hug today without acting like a stray dog when she touched me. This is becoming easier for me to do all the time!

I believe that dreams can come true - one step at a time.

I have just generally been feeling very positive and peaceful lately. Life seems to be getting a bit easier and that's a good thing...

TC, do we get to hear details of the date?

I also believe dreams can come true, if we allow ourselves to choose love over fear.

My date was an adventure. After all the time we have spent discussing being present in the moment, I have to admit some things that happened earlier in the day Sunday took control of my mind and a part of me was not as present as I really had hopped I would be. Even so I was more comfortable, relaxed then I usually am in intimate settings.

We had a nice dinner, talked about our interests, never came close to discussing NPD, and overall enjoyed our time together. At her suggestion we are getting together again on Friday night, so I guess I was present enough in the moment not to make an awful first impression. For the first time I feel relaxed about the idea of coming into this kind of relationship. I have no expectations of where it might lead, its just fun to be coming together. :cookiemonster:

I tried looking at the day as a challenge instead of a chore and it seemed like I had twice the energy as usual. Something new to add to my arsenal of ways to get through the days with some pleasure as well as success.
