9 Comebacks for Dealing With A Narcissist
HERE ARE 9 COMEBACKS FOR DEALING WITH A NARCISSIST:
It is ok to say no if you don’t feel comfortable with someone. It is ok to say no if you don’t feel good doing something. It is ok to say no if you don’t feel comfortable with the way someone is treating you. It is ok to say no. You are the captain of your life, not someone else, and you alone are the master of your own fate.
2. “STAY ON TOPIC AND DON’T CHANGE THE SUBJECT.”
A narcissist will use any argument to make it about themselves, and about some mistake or hurt in the past that you have inflicted on them, whether real or perceived. They will try to steer the subject away from their own selfish actions and toward something that they feel will make you feel guilty. Don’t let them. Keep the discussion on topic and moving where you want it to go.
3. “I WILL BELIEVE IT WHEN I SEE IT.”
Narcissists have a bad habit of over-promising and under-delivering. Don’t get your hopes up if they make outlandish promises or overstate their importance, influence, wealth or skills. They will promise you the moon just make sure you see the deed in writing and get it notarized by two people first. They will make these promises to emotionally manipulate you so keep your emotions and expectations under control until they deliver on their promises.
