What to Expect This Episode:


This episode we are diving into boundaries and specifically boundaries with a narcissist. This is an important topic because so often we think that when we are dealing with a toxic person or somebody with a personality disorder we go straight to just cutting them out of our lives completely and we often don’t think to use boundaries. The truth is though, that we can’t always cut people out of our lives and by learning how to apply better boundaries we can help ourselves to have better relationships and interactions with those people.


In this episode we share 5 tips when it comes to setting boundaries with a narcissist.

  1. Decide what behaviors you are willing to accept.

  2. Don’t justify, overexplain, or overshare.

  3. Have an exit plan or strategy

  4. Realize that setting boundaries isn’t a one time thing. It’s a continuous process that you will have to come back to.

  5. Have compassion for yourself when you fall short of setting or holding a boundary.
