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.
Reclaiming. Getting out of the deep groove. The taking of something known and metamorphing it.
Humans and animals "mark" their territory, the claiming of "mine". Memories are made from the claiming or attachment to things and stuff and the best and worst of those moments in our lives. A "pleasure memory" or "fear memory". Easily recalled by either our psyche unconsciously or by our beautiful tortured hearts.
Vampires suck. They suck the life out of their prey. They are beautiful and sexy, electric and all the things you could ever want. Energy vampires prey on those who give, the fixers, the I'll take care of it'ers. The do'ers. That quote "the devil doesn't come in a red cap and pointy horns, he comes as everything you ever wished for".
