How to talk to difficult people – that you really don’t want to talk to

30 Nov 2021

If you were fortunate enough to live in abuse survivor heaven, you would never need to speak to a narcissistic ex-partner, parent or family member again.

Sadly, in the real world, that is not always what happens.

For one reason or another, you can feel it is incumbent on you to continue to have some kind of contact.  All too often, that kind of contact can leave you feeling intimidated, devalued and traumatised all over again.

Fortunately, there is a better way.

You don’t have to be left still walking on egg-shells around that person.

You don’t have to feel constantly on the back foot with them.

Instead, you can totally restructure the interactions that you have with them in such a way that you can keep them in check.

Now, I am not saying that you will ever be able to turn them into nice people that it will be a pleasure to be around – that, as my Mr Nasty would say, would be true Cloud Cuckoo Land.

However, you will learn to neutralise them so effectively that you may well surprise yourself.

You will discover what is possible for your necessary interactions with Narcissists and other difficult people when you watch this short video.
