Looking for daily motivation, inspiration, or more information about narcissism in general? You can find me (Dana Morningstar) at:
My goal is to educate, empower, and inspire other abuse victims in understanding more about what happened to them (and how to prevent it from happening again), as well as how to go on and rebuild an amazing life.
