Older generations argue that millennials are narcissists, and some millennials have come to believe the hype. But is that label accurate? Our panel has experienced the stereotyping, but what’s the balance between being overly obsessed with self and merely self-aware or responsible? What’s clinical narcissistic behavior and what’s just selfishness? When is it OK to look out for your best interests, and when is it time to be others-focused?

Guests: Dr. Laurel Shaler,
We’ve all been there. A friend turns on us or a relationship with a family member goes sour. These distressing situations sometimes end up damaging our self-worth or cause us to feel isolated and alone. But as psychotherapist Dr. Laurel Shaler says, Christ’s model of relational health, forgiveness and redemption has the power to keep us from spiraling into shame or anger when relationships go bad. Instead, learn how to reset your relationships and move them forward in a God-honoring way.
