What to Say to a Narcissist to Shut Them Down Permanently


By the end of this article, you’re going to know exactly what to say to a narcissist and how to say it in order to shut them down permanently. So, let’s talk about what to say to a narcissist to shut them down, and shut them down permanently. Now, remember, when you’re dealing with a narcissist, you’re actually dealing with an entitled, childish ingrate who lacks boundaries and has very little, if any, empathy and conscience. In addition, you’re dealing with a master manipulator, someone who is willing to go to any lengths—lengths that you and I cannot even fathom—just to get their way, just to win the right fight, just to look like the good guy or good girl, just to look like either the hero or the victim. They’ll go to any lengths.

So, you want to be sure to choose your battles wisely. I’m going to be dirt honest with you; more often than not, it’s going to be in your best interest to simply back away—quietly, with no sudden movements, stay under the radar—and once you get away, stay away for good. Truly, that’s always going to be your best bet with these creatures. But if for whatever reason, that’s not an option for you, or for whatever reason, you are not quite ready, willing, or able to do that, then here’s what you want to know.

Leave All Emotion Out

When it comes to shutting a narcissist down permanently, the first thing you want to do is leave all emotion out of it. Do not, under any circumstances, react to their provocations. You want to deal with them as if it’s a business transaction, no matter who they are. There is no room, zero, nada for emotion if your goal is to actually shut them down permanently. You want to stay calm, cool, and collected, no matter what it takes. Make a conscious effort to focus on your breath. Stay in your body and remain completely non-reactive.
