In this edition of Ask Dr. Love, Dr. Jamie Turndorf discusses Excessive Personalization. She traces this cognitive distortion back to its origin, which is the narcissism of childhood--in which kids believe the world revolves around them. This thinking combined with being blamed and criticized as a child, results in the tendency to self-blame and to hear criticism from our partners even when criticism isn't being delivered.

Tune in to find out Dr. Turndorf's 7 steps for eliminating Excessive Personalization and achieving greater relationship harmony.
