Boundaries are Your Sword & Shield

A person who trusts their intuition and knows their rights and has boundaries to protect their values is immune to long-term abuse by the narcissist, psychopath, sociopath, borderlines, energy vampire or other disordered person, that I refer to as a Zombie.

The Narcissist cannot tolerate boundaries because they cannot stand FUNCTIONAL behavior. Functional behavior, that is, the give-and-take of real feelings, emotions and expression among 2 or more people is the antithesis of toxic behavior. Narcissists need things to be dysfunctional and chaotic because this is the way they gain and maintain power and control. Your internal and external boundaries are your weapon and protection against these body snatchers.

Love is to the Narc like Holy Water is to the Vampire. Narcs cannot express feelings because love is vulnerability, and to the Zombie, this is a weakness. Since the narc wishes to control and destroy, you will see them avoiding true love at all costs.

Knowledge IS POWER. Knowing your rights will keep you safe. Knowing what you want, what you need and what you deserve--and being able to stand up for your rights and maintain your boundaries is your weapon against abuse from those who want to take you down.
