Nonsensical Conversations from Hell
If you think that a narcissist is capable of thoughtfulness and rationality, you’ll be in for a surprise. Any topic that is breached with a toxic person will end up in an orgy of mindfuckery and disorientation.
Malignant narcissists and sociopaths love to use word salad (a random assortment of non-related words), circular points, ad hominem arguments, projection and gas lighting to disorient you and get you so off track that they’ve essentially confused the shit out of you. If you disagree with them, it’s important that they discredit, confuse and frustrate you, to ‘win’ the conversation, and make you feel guilty for being a human being with your own thoughts, feelings and emotions. In fact, the entire problem behind the conversation is you.
There’s no limit to how far they’ll go, when you disagree with one little thing. If they say the grass is blue and the sky is green and you disagree, they’ll argue you stupid, attacking your entire existence, family, career and lifestyle choices. Once you’e questioned their omnipresence and omniscience, you’re a bug to be psychologically squashed.
Therefore, the best way to avoid it, is to not engage in the drama and give them your energy. Don’t supply them with fuel for their narcissism, just hang onto it for yourself and know that they’re fucked up and not you.
