Stacey's Story

Here we have another story that highlights the dangers of codependency, this time in the area of narcissism. You might have seen the term “narcissism” thrown around a lot when it comes to unhealthy relationships. It’s become a bit of a buzzword.

Simply put: it’s the extreme fixation on the self that completely disregards impact or connection with others. And this can take on many variations and create many different results.

For Stacey, this looked like a high-profile divorce that in many ways was worse than death.

Even though from the outside it seemed like the dream life: lucrative career that came with fame and praise, the power couple relationship, happy kids, lots of friends and a full social calendar.

All of the trappings of keeping up with the Joneses, yet something was going on underneath. A storm was brewing. There was a lot going on behind the scenes. And it was painful. Very painful.

Stacey would go on to hit rock bottom. Her marriage and career were over, and her health was suffering.

And all of this can be traced back to the codependent habits within her relationship that triggered narcissistic behaviors like lack of empathy and excessive need for attention and validation.

Stacey found the YourDay Balance Game coaching programs, and leaned into a process of self-love and self-worth.
