Dr Ramani and Silvia Saige answer listener questions about empathy vs. sympathy, dealing with a groom's toxic mom, and the questionable power of Tony Robbins.
Narcissism is all about a lack of empathy, but even Silvia is not sure what that exactly means. Dr Ramani lays it out, alongside the important difference between 'reacting' and 'responding.'
Then, the ladies offer strategies for managing a narcissistic mother who's threatening to spoil a wedding! Plus, a deep dive into the power of positive thinking, and why some people should be wary.
Finally, an open-ended question leads to a discussion of "sexual competition" among modern women.
