How to smother a narcissist. A fire burns because of fuel and oxygen. Ignition. Time, energy, love, attention are all fuel to the narcissist fire. To put out that fire, use these simple steps: (And I know they are not easy) Don’t let them push your buttons. They love that. No reaction can be a fire extinguisher. Stop communications. No texting. No liking. No following. No checking relentlessly. Let them go.
The sun has set and it is now dusk. A light blue dusts the sky against the dark shadows of the 250 year old oak and 200 year old Monterey Pine in my yard. I'm 7,000 steps in walking around the pool and I decide to leap into the oversized bean bag/love sac for a minute to watch the bats. They come out every night at this time. I love watching them.

"You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don't. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly."
