Old Problems, New Perspectives, and the Possibility of Hope

Reclaim You

“As I change my outlook, the world around me will shift because I will have new clarity. Perhaps the other person—the narcissist—will change, perhaps not. I need not focus on that any longer. The fact that I have gotten a new perspective on an old problem is what brings me a sense of well-being, calmness, and hope. My job is to take that new perspective and apply it only to better myself and care for myself.”
