Identifying Flying Monkeys: How to Deal with Narcissistic Flying Monkeys
Most people know what a flying monkey is, but they may not know how to deal with them. A flying monkey is someone who does the bidding of a narcissist to make them look good or to punish someone who has crossed them. They are often used as tools to control and manipulate others.
If you have a flying monkey in your life, it’s important to keep your distance from them. Don’t let them get too close, and don’t share any personal information with them. It’s also important to be assertive and stand up for yourself. Don’t let the flying monkey bully you or control you.
Dealing With Flying Monkeys: How to Deal with Narcissistic Flying Monkeys
1 – Don’t let them guilt you into doing anything you don’t want to do.
When a narcissistic flying monkey attacks someone close to us, it can be challenging to react. Do you confront the attacker? Or do you stand by your loved one? There is no easy answer, but there are some things you can do to help.
First, remember that you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do. Don’t let the flying monkey shame you into doing something you don’t want to do. If it’s not something that feels right for you, don’t do it.
Second, stand by your loved one. They need your support now more than ever. Let them know that you love and support them, no matter what anyone says.
Finally, confront the flying monkey. Let them know that their behavior is unacceptable and that they need to stop attacking your loved ones.
2 – Set Boundaries and Stick To Them
It can be challenging to set boundaries with narcissistic people and have flying monkeys. Flying monkeys do the narcissist’s bidding and help them manipulate and control their victims.
It is important to remember that these people are not your friends, and they will not protect you from the narcissist. They may try to convince you that you are overreacting or that the narcissist is misunderstood.
Do not listen to them.
It is also important to remember that you cannot change the narcissist. They will only change if they want to, and they will only do it for themselves, not anyone else.
You cannot fix someone who does not want to be fixed. The best thing you can do is protect yourself from them and walk away if necessary.
3 – Don’t Share Any Personal Information With Them
When you are in a relationship with someone who has a narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), you may find yourself dealing with what are called “flying monkeys.”
These are people the narcissist relies on to do their bidding, helping them put down the person they’re targeting and generally make life miserable for the person they see as a threat.
If you have any personal information about the narcissist’s target – such as their home address, email address, or phone number – do not share it with the narcissist or their flying monkeys. They may use this information to harass or even stalk the person they’re targeting.
Instead, try to keep your interactions with the narcissist and their flying monkeys limited to necessary conversations. If you need to communicate with them, keep it brief and polite. And most importantly, don’t let them get under your skin.
4 – Keep Communication Clear and Concise
When dealing with a narcissistic flying monkey, it’s important to keep communication clear and concise. These people often act as the narcissist’s enablers, doing their bidding and carrying out their dirty work. They can be very dangerous, so it’s important to stay on your toes and ensure you don’t fall into their trap.
Be direct and honest with them, and make sure your messages are short and to the point. Avoid getting into arguments or power struggles, and don’t let them provoke you.
Keep your emotions in check, and stay focused on your goals. Most importantly, remember that these people are not your friends – they’re just tools of the narcissist.
5 – Avoid Drama at all Costs
It’s happened to all of us at one time or another. We mind our own business when someone we don’t know very well starts drama with us for no apparent reason. Before we know it, we’re sucked into the he/she said battle that we have no intention of fighting. So how do we avoid drama at all costs?
The first step is to deal with any narcissistic flying monkeys involved. Narcissists use narcissistic flying monkeys to do their dirty work.
They are often friends, family members, or co-workers of the narcissist and can be very difficult to get rid of. However, it is essential to remember that they are only doing what the narcissist has programmed them to do, and they are not your enemies.
Conclusion: How to Deal with Narcissistic Flying Monkeys
In conclusion, if you find yourself dealing with narcissistic flying monkeys, remember to keep a cool head and stay strong. Don’t let them get to you, and don’t engage with them. Keep your boundaries firmly in place, and don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself.
Most importantly, remember that you are not alone. Others out there have gone through or are currently going through the same thing. Lean on them for support, and know that you will get through this.
