Disturbing documentary about narcissists and psychopaths

Lucky Otters Haven

I never saw this film before. While I dislike the all-too-common merging together of the characteristics of psychopathy/sociopathy/ASPD with those of NPD (non-malignant narcissists are not without feelings, even if they are very self-centered), this is still a very interesting, scary and disturbing video describing the emotional vampires in our lives and that dominate our society.

So in honor of July 4th—a very important holiday for those in the U.S. that falls, sadly, on a Saturday this year—I have decided to devote this week’s post to the issue of vacation time.

(Spoiler alert: the answer is always take it!)

According to Time magazine, in 2013 employed Americans took an average of 16 days of vacation—5 fewer days than in the 1980s. This happened in spite of reams of research supporting the notion that taking vacation is good for your body, your mind, and your soul. Here is more evidence that good things happen when you use those PTO days.

  1. You are more likely to be promoted. New research actually shows that, counter-intuitively, people who take their vacation time are the ones who get promoted
