Bulletproof Protection Against Psychopaths & Narcissists on Hello Freedom with Terri Cole

Bulletproof Protection Against Psychopaths & Narcissists on Hello Freedom with Terri ColeHave you ever been in a conversation with someone and you feel like they are intentionally misunderstanding you? Like they twist your words? It is so frustrating. Being involved with psychopaths or narcissists in your daily life is just that: incredibly frustrating. Whether it’s romantically, in your family, or in your workplace, many of us cannot just go cold turkey no contact with these people in our lives.

Today I’m talking about how to manage psychopaths in your life. We know you can’t engage with them because no matter what you say, it just feeds them. But a few years ago I found a new method, and I’m excited to share it with you and help you use it in your own life.

  1. You know I think I’ve spent my whole adult (and likely child) life trying to be a grey rock. So different to pretending to be a grey rock and covering your colour in clay when they’re around (have you heard the golden buddha story?). Literally anything good or shiny or enjoyable or special or awful or interesting or dramatic about me and my life, I have stripped away so I don’t draw unwanted attention from my narcissistic mom. I have been trying not to be ‘too happy’ or ‘too sad’, ‘too fat’ or ‘too thin’, ‘too extravagant’ or ‘too dull’, ‘too ill’ or ‘too well’… and balancing those things basically amount to NOT EXISTING (grey rock). Now I have a label for her behaviour (narcissist= thank you counselor) and recognise her mental disorder, I know what I have been doing I need to allow my life to be colourful, and yet ensure she doesn’t see or have access to anything that ‘interesting’. Thank you for this podcast and for helping me label this unhealthy coping mechanism.

    1. I am so glad the podcast resonated with you and hope that you will be able to protect yourself with less contact with her soon. Thank you for being here with us xo
