From Daryl: Client sent me a quote. "No one gets more upset than a narcissist being accused of something they definitely did!" True!!!
How can you overcome a Narcissist's taunts? It isn't easy. You have to reach deep inside of you, and take ahold of the power - though deep inside, it's there - and utilize it to help battle against them.
The biggest, and I think most effective defense, is your silence. Believe me, when I feel myself, or someone I care about (like your children, for example) under attack - keeping my mouth shut is NOT an easy task.
In cases where silence is not an option - your best defense is only speaking words of truth. If you only have a few words to speak - speak them!!! Over and over.
Examples could be - "You hit me." "You lied to me, and my family." "You went to my job so many times, they fired me, so they didn't have to deal with YOU." You have plenty to share, I am sure.
WHATEVER your truth is, speak it. Using Wheel of Fortune, as an example - numerous people have lost their games, because they put in extra words. Use as few words, as necessary, to express your truth. Try to avoid giving them more to attack you with.
Have a good day, and be safe... #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE #EtSoV
