Ignoring a narcissist is critical – it is a skill that will save your life. And there is no time that ignoring a narcissist is more important than when a narcissist tries to punish you.
Narcissists love to get your reaction. And as soon as they do, you are handing power away.
This is how narcissists “prosper” – they like to know that they have infiltrated your thoughts, heart, mind and soul to the point where they are everything to you – front and center, sideways, up and down and inside and out.
That is what it feels like when a narcissist gets their tentacles into you … like everything you used to think is tipped upside down and turned on its head.
Until we know better we think that combatting a narcissist, when their cruel punishment emerges, can stop the battering – the onslaught of twists, turns, mind-bends and outright abuse.
But it can’t.
