Why Fantastic Negrito Considers Himself A Recovering Narcissist

Xavier Amin Dphrepaulezz, otherwise known as Grammy Award-winning artist Fantastic Negrito, joins Dr. Mike Friedman on the Going There Podcast to discuss how he understands and copes with narcissism. 

People who struggle with narcissism often experience a profound profound sense of shame, self-loathing, and emptiness, and may cope with these feelings through a variety of protective mechanisms including grandiosity and defensiveness. The Have You Lost Your Mind Yet artist explained how emotional pain from childhood events contributed to his feeling disconnected from himself and his “truth,” thus leading to the experience of narcissism. He also described how working to stay connected to his truth is part of his ongoing recovery from narcissism.  The “Root City” musician’s decision to step up and share his struggle with narcissism is a  powerful and important challenge to the stigma of mental illness. At a time when people who struggle with narcissism are often maligned in the media, it’s critical that we remember that people who struggle with narcissism or any mental health issue deserve to be treated with dignity and get the care they need. So let’s go there and check out what Xavier has to say!
