Their attempt at getting you to defend yourself has failed. Saying this will show them that the conversation is over and you don’t have a response.
6. Cut Their Psychic Cords
Narcissists think that they can engage you in their reality.
They expect a reaction out of you when they push your buttons.
However, if you acknowledge their reality and tell them that you accept it, despite the fact that it is faulty, you are sending a firm message that you are not going to be manipulated, nor are you going to have the reaction that they expect.
7. Rise Above It
Always be the best, truest version of yourself. If someone is trying to convince you that you have done something wrong or that you are a horrible person, don’t try to retaliate or defend yourself.
Doing so will only cause you to behave in the way that they are accusing you of. If you don’t act in a way that the narcissist expects, they’re likely to give up and leave you alone.
8. Offer Compassion
Having compassion for someone who is narcissistic will help you remember that they are dealing with a mental issue that has nothing to do with you.
This means you are having to handle a difficult or toxic person in what could possibly be an abusive relationship. The humanity of a narcissist must be recognized because they are in pain.
