2 – Stay Silent With The Arguing With A Narcissist ~ Manipulating a Narcissist
The next time you find your narcissists arguing with you over nonsense, LET THEM!
Let them yell, cry, b*tch, and moan.
Let them walk out and leave you.
Or let them tell you to leave and DO SO.
Narcs are almost all the same. They have a pattern to them.
And it is our job to look for these patterns.
Know what it is that sets them off and prepare yourself for when they enter their temper tantrums.
If you know, they usually walk out for hours on ends ~ USE THAT TIME TO LEAVE YOURSELF.
Have yourself ready and packed the next time they get ready to throw a temper tantrum and leave.
If they tell you to leave — thinking you have no place to go — use that as the means to leave them finally.
Listen, let the argument, the smears, and the “leave me alone” be the tools that you use to make your escape.
See your time with them as a prison, and them yelling and screaming is the guard who is asleep.
Take the opportunities to make your great escape.
3 – Go Along With The Narcissist Gaslighting ~ Manipulating a Narcissist
Narcissistic people genuinely think they are geniuses. They think they are playing 4D chess when, in actuality, they are barely playing tic tac toe.
The Dunning Kruger Effect is strong in these clowns.
Gaslighting can be very hard to notice, especially when you have no idea what gaslighting is.
Read my article here to get a clear understanding of what gaslighting is and how to avoid it.
When a narc tries and makes you question your sanity…GO WITH IT.
Let them think you are that crazy because it will make them sloppy and silly.
If you have NOT seen the movie gaslight, which is where this terminology comes from, watch how the female protagonist wins in the end.
Mind you, the movie may cause you flashbacks of your time with the narc, but if you stick with it to the end, you will see how she turned the heads on the gaslighter.
They think we are stupid, then let’s play stupid.
