Blocking a narcissist can be a difficult but necessary step to protect your mental and emotional health. Narcissists are often manipulative and abusive, and they can take a toll on your self-esteem and confidence. If you are considering blocking a narcissist, here are some things to keep in mind:
Be prepared for a reaction. Narcissists may not take it well when they are blocked. They may try to contact you through other means, or they may make threats or accusations.
Don’t engage with them. If a narcissist tries to contact you, don’t respond. Engaging with them will only give them the attention they crave.
Be patient. It may take some time for the narcissist to accept that you are no longer in contact with them.
Seek support. If you are struggling to cope with the aftermath of blocking a narcissist, reach out to a friend, family member, or therapist for support.
Here are some additional tips for blocking a narcissist:
Block them on all platforms. This includes social media, email, and your phone.
Change your passwords. If you share any accounts with the narcissist, change your passwords to prevent them from accessing your information.
Tell your friends and family. Let your close friends and family know that you have blocked the narcissist and ask them to be respectful of your decision.
Blocking a narcissist is a big decision, but it is often the best course of action for your mental and emotional health. If you are struggling to deal with a narcissist, please know that you are not alone. There are many resources available to help you, and you deserve to be happy and healthy.
