How To Outsmart a Narcissist: 5 Things That Work
How To Outsmart a Narcissist
Narcissism- Personality qualities include thinking very highly of oneself, needing admiration, believing others are inferior, and lacking empathy for others.
#-1-Don’t Engage With Their Drama- don’t speak until they respect you (be prepared to be silent for awhile lol).
#2- Keep Your Emotions In Check- anticipate them trying to get a rise out of you and make you overly emotional so they can take advantage of you. You are less rational when emotional.
#3- Stop Trying To Change Them- They cannot change and do not want to change. Set boundaries and change your expectations to expect the absolute worse no matter what they say. They specialize in telling you what you want to hear so they can do the exact opposite after you believe their words which never match their actions. They’ll change long enough to gain trust and use it against you. You can predict it and take it to the bank.
#4- Stay True To Yourself- don’t allow them to gaslight you (make you think you are crazy and not believe what your own mind, eyes and ears experience). If they can make you question your reality and decision making they can break you because you lost your sense of self-worth and trust in yourself. Then, they become your God and you focus only on not upsetting them. They came to you disturbed. You cannot fix or heal them. Most psychologist can even heal someone with this disorder because they know everything lol.
#5- Get Professional Support- you will need a trained professional (not a podcaster lol) to help you regain a healthy sense of self and exit this toxic dynamic and replace it with a healthier one. In the end, a stronger sense of self would have spotted a narcissist a mile away and never entered the relationship. Therapy will help you find healthy love!
