3. Give him a taste of his own medicine
If you have ever wondered how to hurt a narcissist who is into playing games, the best way is to give him a taste of his own medicine. That means that you should start treating him the way he has always been treating you—like he doesn’t matter to you. It doesn’t mean that you should make a big announcement or that you should threaten him that you will start treating him the way he deserves, because that would only give him a heads-up and he would know you were doing all of it just to get back at him. Instead, you should simply start ignoring the narcissist, acting the way he deserves, step by step.
The first thing you need to do is to stop prioritizing this guy. While you’ve been putting him first since the moment you guys met, he has always treated you as one of his options and has been always putting you at the bottom of his priority list. So instead of waiting for him to treat you the way you treat him and the way you deserve, start acting as if he’s not very important to you.
