“When you start to set boundaries with the narc or anyone else, you won’t do it perfectly at first. You have to do it again and again to get it right. Here’s a suggestion about telling people what your boundaries are. Practice in front of a mirror. Say it out loud.
This is a new skill and it will take practice just like anything else. If you continue to practice, then your boundaries will get stronger over time as YOU get stronger. What you might have timidly asserted as a boundary at one point, a year later if that person tries to cross that boundary, you’re likely to be a mama/papa bear.
Here’s the thing….START NOW, and remember this is a learned skill, so give your self time. You can do this.”
