What tips do you have on beating narcissists at their own game? We interviewed experts asking them this question, below are their answers.
My advice is to be strong with your boundaries and trust your intuition that your version of reality is the truth. Don’t let everything be about them; remember that your needs are important in a relationship and look for the signs of when they are turning things back on you and shut down that narrative. Also resist the urge to have extreme emotional reactions to what they say – respond only to their words and assess the level of emotional safety in confiding in them when you do have negative emotions. If you don’t feel safe confiding in them, find outside support through family, friends, or a professional.
