The Object of My Affection is in my Reflection

Rokelle Lerner

Rokelle Lerner has a new book: The Object of My Affection is in my Reflection, Coping with Narcissists. Rokelle Lerner writes to give support to those who are in a relationship with someone who is a drama queen, a bully, or worse. She explains that childhood deficits create a worldview for narcissists in that they are entitled to adoration simply because they exist. This is a thoughtful book with an interesting take on codependency – can it be that many are really closeted narcissists? As she writes: “Codependency could certainly describe a type of narcissistic behavior where one devotes his life to another… while at the same time feeling resentful, bitter, and contemptuous.”
