How To Respond To A Narcissist’s Text Message
If you are receiving crude, unsettling, and maybe even threatening text messages from the narcissist in your life — it would prove most valuable to save a screenshot of these nasty text messages for future references.
So what do I mean?
Many people are unaware that it is possible to sue someone for emotional distress!
Narcissistic people have no filter. They believe themselves much higher in society than they are. As a result, rarely think about what they are doing.
They are someone childish in their way of thinking. Like a baby that has no grasp of what consequences are!
If you are receiving threatening or even incriminating text message, you can use that if you ever want to bring them to court or file a restraining order against them.
In this article, I want to give you a few suggestions on how you should respond to a narcissist’s text message!
How To Respond To A Narcissist’s Text Message
# 1 – File A Restraining Order: Cell Phone Texting Abuse
The more I research, the more it baffles me at how many abuses there can be and how many abuses go over so many people’s heads.
As I always mention, abuse does not always have to be physical!
Texting, when not wanted and texting that is threatening, can be considered ABUSE!
Many people filed for a restraining order and filing for compensation for emotional abuse due to the threatening and crude text messages.
This is why it is very important to screenshot the texts when you receive them from the narcissist for future reference.
Give this article a read on “How to Report Cell Phone Text Abuse,” for a step by step guide on taking the appropriate actions.
# 2 – Sue For Emotional Distress
Yes! It is possible to sue someone for emotional distress!
Note: I AM NOT A LEGAL PROFESSIONAL. It is possible — but understand that there are many grey areas and it would be prudent of you to SPEAK WITH A PROFESSIONAL! Check the link above this paragraph to learn more.
Narcissistic people can cause a myriad of mental health issues in their victims. Such as, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, and even PTSD!
Physical abuse can leave an indelible impact on a person’s mind and cause them to have sleepless nights and experience panic attacks.
This is more the reason to keep the messages, as well as jot down, in a journal or diary, all the pain they put you through.
# 3 – Ghost Them
If you don’t want to deal with the whole drama of court and the legal system because heaven knows narcs know how to play the victim and when they have an audience, you should consider ghosting!
(Note: Understand, if you do decide to take them to court, and if they have had a run-in with the law, which many of them do, it is MUCH EASIER to make your case. KEEP THE MESSAGES).
Ghosting is not too dissimilar to going No Contact, except that you take it up a notch. You become like a rogue agent who goes off the grid.
This means that you cut all ties with them on social media. Heck, you may even shut down your social media accounts.
You change emails, you change phone numbers, and in some cases, you may even change neighborhoods or cities.
You become a ghost to them.
And for narcissists who need attention and need supply, this is like going cold turkey.
They will go insane, well even more batsh*t bonkers from not having supply.
This is a GREAT REVENGE!
Stand Your Ground
If you are receiving negative text messages, stand your ground. Show the narc in your life that you will NOT tolerate their insanity!
Nothing hurts a narcissist more than not being able to hurt someone unjustly.
These people are not playing with a full deck. They are a bunch of Jokers running around.
Losers need to cause pain to others.
DO NOT BE THEIR PUNCHING BAG.
Cut them out of your life…and you win!
No Shame In Therapy
Narcissistic people can do a wonder on someone’s mind and psychology. In fact, I wrote an article called “10+ Mental Illnesses Caused By Staying With A Narcissists“.
The narcissists and their legion of fools can slowly drive you insane. And sometimes the best help you can ever receive is from a stranger.
When everyone around you is trying to convince you that YOU are the bad person, sometimes an objective view of you from someone you don’t know maybe what saves you from drowning in the sea of insanity the narc and their legion of fools try and drown you in.
Therapy can help heal in ways that reading blogs, listening to videos, and talking with other WARRIORS (we are not survivors, we are warriors) can ever do.

Narcs have a legion of fools behind them to hurt you, I think it would be a good thing to build your own army of warriors and allies to help stand by your side.
