She’ll be blogging for us Thursdays on www.livesofstyle.com/the_last_word/ and Lives of Style will be airing select coaching segments from Dr. Allen on broadcast TV and on the Internet.


Lives of Style: Hi Dr. Allen! I wanted to discuss narcissism and what it means for an individual who is narcissistic.

Dr. Pat Allen:  Great! There are many individuals who are choosing to be narcissistic.

Lives of Style: So, let’s talk about narcissism and how that plays into a relationship.

Dr. Pat Allen: Did you know that narcissism as a borderline personality disorder is going to be taken out of the next DSM-V, and do you know why?

Lives of Style: Why?

Dr. Pat Allen: It’s because a person who is individualized and actualized is narcissistic and has a right to it. You’re only a pathological narcissist when you’re a parent or you’re in love. There’s nothing wrong with being a narcissistic single person. So narcissism, because it’s being taken out of the DSM-V, means that if you’re single and you’re not a parent, you’re an actualized person.

Lives of Style: Which means that you can think and feel…

Dr. Pat Allen: And you can have people for your thinking side and people for your feeling side. This means that monogamy is not your end game.
