How to drive a #narcissist #crazy: 1. everything is black or white w/them. Try a compromise. They will get triggered. 2. Your independence. They can’t stand this. Be independent. Think freely have your opinions & viewpoints. Exert your independence their their sense of superior
Will be threatened. You have the right to your own opinions, feelings thoughts. This drives them crazy. They now can’t be in control. 4. Accomodation of your preferences. They can’t stand this as they need to choose your vacation, your dinner at the restaurant
There is no Accomodating your feelings your opinions your wishes. It is their way OR the highway. 5. Change. Change interrupts their fixed narrative or agenda. They hate this 6. Ultimatums. If you have given your #narcissists an ultimatum they are now backed up against a wall.
They will rage, threaten and abuse you because they cannot #control you. Remember they don’t carry about you. They don’t ask about you, unless they want to use the information against you. #psychology
You should NOT have to teach them how to be considerate loving and kind. Know what you are dealing with. You shouldn’t have to teach them to be respectful of your independence and freedom of speech. You should have to teach them #boundaries. They haven’t grown up and
#Therapy often does not work on them. Be careful out there. People can make you or break you 💕✨#therapy #Mentalhealth #clusterB

Narcissist or Cluster B thread 🧵 These people do not and cannot talk ‘with’ you or their children. They talk ‘at’ YOU. There is a huge difference. They can't truly communicate. They do NOT have the capacity. Genuine communication is ‘two sided’. Talking ‘with’ vs. ‘at’
If you have someone, some group, in your life who talks ‘at’ you, you have some reevaluating to do. Notice #socialjustice groups. Do they talk ‘with you’ or ‘at’ you? Notice #transgender #transactivist groups. Do they talk ‘with’ or ‘AT’ people?
Genuine communication is ‘two sided’ with both interested in hearing and seeking to understand the other with respect. Narcissists are one sided, one way & one dimensional ONLY.
They are ‘adversarial’ communicators & conversationalists. It is in their words & in their language

Cults: People join cults because they're looking for love and acceptance. They want answers to the personal problems in their lives. The give their lives and their bodies over to a group that defines reality for them.
All cult behaviour includes manipulation, lies, an authoritarian mindset, mind control over the group members, a communal and totalistic organization, aggressive proselytizing, systematic programs of indoctrination, and often, but not always, perpetuation in middle-class society
Other people outside the group are the ‘enemy’, are ‘othered’ and to be hated. They are beneath the cult members. They expect others to think like them and they rage when others either cannot or refuse not to.

#narcissists don’t know ‘who’ they are are. They have ‘identity’ problems. That’s why they have to tell you who they are all the time. They will ‘rage’ if you challenge them. The biggest population of narcissists are bosses, CEOS, in television, leadership, activists, influencers
They love to be on camera doing the ‘right’ thing for the children or the animals. But there is another side to them. Be careful. Having boundaries is critical. Covert narcissists are subtle, not obvious. You cannot argue with a narcissist. Their job is to get you to ‘doubt’
your sanity or deny your reality or reality itself. Anyone that causes you to doubt yourself, your reality, your feelings, your thoughts, is NOT a friend. Detox yourself. #psychology #narcissism #arrogance #contempt

The 2021 #Australian Association of Family Therapy #AAFT Conference included a presentation on ‘treating families with Transgender Children’ in the context of family therapy & is a significant departure from ethics, guidelines & the foundational principles of family #therapy
If you are member of the public seeking a family therapist, you have the right to know how they are trained. What follows is their recent training materials. Please share widely. I will be discussing this in my book. Please choose a #therapist wisely. I cannot overstate this
Family therapists in Australia are trained to have an agenda and bias. They are trained to ‘normalise’ and affirm self-ID
