WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU DISCOVER A NARCISSIST IN YOUR MIDST?
Before to take action or counter measures do a little bit of research. Know the difference between true narcissistic personality disorder and those who employ narcissistic behavior because they have seen it work for others’ success.
Many people copy or imitate behavior patterns because they see no harm in the goal achievement and are oblivious to the other harm caused. How they react to the following responses will tell you all you need to know.
Set them. Keep them. Be ready to fight for them because you will have to.
2. GET OUT. GET AWAY.
If the narcissist will not acknowledge and respect your boundaries you have only one option to protect yourself and your self worth GET OUT! And stay out. They will try to suck you back in and all the mind games will start over. Don’t fall for it. Don’t wait for it to blow over or get better. Just go.
3. Focus on a healthy YOU!
Get yourself into a new mental and emotional realm as quickly as you can. This does not mean isolation where you rehash all that was said and done. Nor does this mean commiserating with other victims of the same narcissist. You will not find much help or healing there. Set your sights, your mind and your time on what the ideal YOU would be and don’t stop that pursuit.
There is much evidence to suggest limited recovery or change in the heart and actions of someone who has NPD.
These three actions will be honored and respected by a normal person with narcissist tendencies as learned or contrived behavior. Know the difference for your own well being.
