I suppose it depends on where you start — as Jessica said. If you come at a Narcissist without the emotion value for them to manipulate in the first place — they don’t have a lot to work with. If you don’t care about their dramas — and allow them no impact on your inner landscape they are for the most part — harmless. And you can, in fact, learn from them. Because their lack of decorum will lead to seeds of truth. Rudely stated and wielded for their own self interest. But truth none the less. Most people don’t care to hear unkind truths and will allow others to have power over their worlds to keep such things hidden. Others of us simply don’t give a fuck what other people think — and never have. Narcissists find us hardly entertaining at all.
