Narcissists are notoriously manipulative. They are skilled at getting what they want from others through guilt, pity, and flattery. They have an inflated sense of self-importance and are self-centered, which means they don’t care about other people. If you’re dealing with a narcissist in your life, here are 10 ways you can make narcissists suffer:
Ignoring a narcissist is one of the most effective ways to make them suffer. Narcissists are frequently so preoccupied with their importance that ignoring them can be highly frustrating. It’s easy to do and can be done in various ways. You can directly ignore them by refusing to acknowledge their presence or failing to respond to their texts or emails. You can also ignore them indirectly by not allowing them to insert themselves into your life. The key to making them suffer is demonstrating that you don’t care what they think or feel about you. This will make narcissists feel like they are losing control of their surroundings. It makes them feel weak and vulnerable, which narcissists despise the most.
Be confident in yourself and your abilities.
A narcissist will avoid being around someone who’s self-assured and confident. A narcissist will make you feel inferior to make themselves feel better. They will try to discredit you at every opportunity. Narcissists are often insecure and seek out people who will validate their inadequacy. It’s much more difficult for someone else to manipulate or control your actions when you’re confident in who you are and what you’ve accomplished. When someone challenges their confidence or acts as if they are better than them, narcissists become enraged. You’ll be less likely to fall into their traps, causing them pain.
