Hi everyone. Sorry that I haven’t written in awhile. I had another 5 am creative moment and empowering message to share so here I am once again.
I’ve had a rough time lately with huge stresses with someone close to me. With the dust settling now I wanted to share something that has empowered me because it can be applied to dealings with narcissists.
We all know that narcissists are button pushers. They actually study their victims to realize and understand what their buttons are. Creepy isn’t it? Narcissists want to make you uncomfortable and they hit you where you’re vulnerable. They want to make you uneasy and self-doubting. They want to lower your self-esteem and control you. Can you think of your own vulnerabilities and how the narcissist in your life has tried to use them over and over again against you? Worse yet, have you believed their comments and allowed the destructive tape to play over and over again in your mind? Don’t feel bad, many of us have been there and this game of button pushing is intense and ruthless.
Now that you have come to the realization about what this tactic is and how it’s being executed upon you, it’s time to take action. The action is simple. Just say this phrase in your mind, to the narcissist, or just out loud.
“You Aren’t Going to Push My Buttons Anymore!”
I used this weeks ago and I’m still empowered and I feel lighter. I’m free just because I said this simple phrase. Try it and I hope it works for you as it did me.
