Quote of the Day

When we can recognize attitudes and behaviors that reflect unhealthy narcissism, we can become our own gardeners, uprooting these behaviors in ourselves.  Similarly, we can prevent others from encroaching into boundaries where they don't belong and assertively redirect an unhealthy path in another person.  At the very least, we may recognize the potential for violence that so frequently appears to strike us from nowhere and take preventative action.

-- Eleanor D. Payson, The Wizard of Oz and Other Narcissists, p. 155
