Set healthy boundaries that you are comfortable with to keep the amount of distance that you need from the narcissist. Keep your eye only on what you need and continue to aim to fulfill it.
14. Keep Your Cool
Showing a narcissist that you’re upset will reinforce their behavior.
They will see that they have won you over. They will be encouraged by your strong reaction and look for other ways to elicit the same response from you.
Always try to keep a level head and keep any emotions to yourself.
15. Force Them to Move On
If you want a narcissist’s behavior to stop, you have to figure out what you are willing to deal with and what you aren’t.
Then you have to respond in the exact same way every time until the narcissist gets so bored with you that they drop it.
If you are facing behavior that you are not willing to deal with, it probably makes it hard for you to be objective during these tense interactions.
