4. “Slow Down”
Narcissists are professional manipulators. They make decisions based on how a situation will benefit them. If you feel like you’re being rushed or pushed in a certain direction that you’re not comfortable with, stop them in their tracks by telling them to slow down.
5. “I Am Assertive And Strong-willed”
One way a narcissist manipulates others is by telling them that they’re being overly emotional. Don’t let anyone else tell you that your feelings don’t matter. If a narcissist is telling you that you’re overreacting or being too emotional, respond by telling them that you are not overly emotional, you are assertive and strong-willed.
