What to Remember When Dealing with a Narcissist
« on: February 08, 2019, 09:38:11 AM »
Excellent summary of what to do and not to do when dealing with a narcissist and I'm pretty sure it works for other PDs too:

If Im not towards myself, who is towards myself? And when Im only towards myself, what am I? And if not now, when? (Rabbi Hillel)

How do you use their projections against them?

I love this! Thanks for sharing.

It looks to me like they're suggesting you can figure out their plan, as it were, by getting them to tell you what they think you're doing.

Like the old thing where if your partner accuses you of cheating you should be suspicious of them cheating on you.

I laughed at this:
