Now, let’s talk about the first type of person narcissists cannot tolerate — the empowered individual. These are people who know their inner strength, have harnessed it fully, and exude confidence. Think of them as a beacon of courage, individuals like Gandhi or Mother Teresa. They’ve gone through the levels of slay strategy, focused on their inner strength, and are like Teflon to narcissistic manipulation. They’re too busy in service, too authentic to be bothered.

My daughter, in a beautiful conversation this morning, echoed this sentiment. She refuses to play into manipulative games, telling people, “I’m not playing games with you anymore.” Narcissists are left baffled as their usual tactics fail against such authenticity.

Now, onto the second type — the boundary setter. These individuals skillfully set boundaries, making it difficult for narcissists to invade their personal space. They say, “I see what’s happening, and I won’t allow it.” Whether at work, in relationships, or parenting, boundary setters maintain a healthy balance between personal and professional life. They understand the importance of emotional well-being in relationships and the need for communication.

Both empowered individuals and boundary setters know who they are, standing in their authentic power. Self-care is crucial, and if you need support, join our community for the self-care you deserve.
