This website and its blog are where A.J. Mahari will be writing/blogging about Narcissism. A.J. Mahari has many other sites on the internet as well. She is an author and speaker, audio podcaster, a mental health/life coach and strategist. Mahari has first hand experience as someone who had BPD and recovered from it. She also has first hand experience as someone whose mother had BPD and whose father had BPD/NPD.
She was never diagnosed herself with NPD. A.J. did experience first hand the narcissism of the borderline false self when she had BPD. She knows first-hand how painful and challenging it is in BPD recovery to endure and find your way through what Mahari calls “the bursting of the borderline narcissistic bubble”.
However, even with her experiences with her father and her ex-partner, her experience as a mental health and life coach, working with over a thousand clients in the last 6 years, has taught her many things about not only NPD or BPD or those coping with having both NPD/BPD or those in relationships with those having one or both of these personality disorders but even more importantly her experience has taught her so much about the relational dynamics and patterns of these personality disorders and relationships.
It is from all of this experience that she has now decided to create this website and to write, do some videos and audios along with Ebooks on this subject. A.J. Mahari has also received thousands of emails from people all over the world who are wanting and needing more information on these issues.
According to A.J. herself, “It is from all of the email along with many of the situations and experiences many who I have life coached and some I am still life coaching that I just knew it would make sense to add my voice to this area. The voice of my experience which comes also from me as someone who hasn’t ever had NPD and who has recovered from BPD, which I think gives me some unique perspective and an ability to have insight that isn’t compromised by having either personality disorder.”
“I hope to provide some helpful information to people who are seeking answers and recovery in their own lives, often from being in relationships with the personality disordered. I will be providing the benefit of my own experience without the trappings of being involved in having either personality disorder or being actively in relation to anyone who does in my personal life. I have healed and moved on from those type of challenging and most painful types of relating in my own life.”
