I have to have ‘no contact’ with narcissistic/sociopathic traits people.
They trigger me far too much, due to all the severe abuse in the first 20 years of my life from narcissistic/sociopathic abusers/parents.
It isn’t because I hate people who have mental health issues, like narcissism. I don’t hate them. I wish they could be healed.
But, *my healing* is more important, than having to have these …types of people in my life.
It was a looooooong time, before I realised, I needed to think this way. I was programmed since birth, to accept these behaviours and not have any needed responses back. I was programmed through considerable severe abuse, to believe I deserved nothing more, than these abusive behaviours.
I have also worked on not feel guilty/wrong about this perfectly acceptable need/boundary.
And it is totally okay and normal for me to have these reactions, after all I have endured.
I don’t need to justify myself to anyone.
