Boundaries Protect You from Narcissists and Borderlines

Sneakers from above.Many clients become hyper-focused on spotting personality disorder Red Flags after being in a relationship with an abusive narcissist, borderline or psychopath. They’re reluctant to date again until they feel certain they’ll be able to detect all the warning signs. This is understandable. After being burned that badly, of course you don’t want to go through that kind of soul sucking, gut wrenching, heart breaking, mindfuckery ever again.

After getting violently ill from bad shellfish, you want to be certain the next plate of oysters isn’t toxic. While being able to identify bullies, selfish jerks, the emotionally immature, emotional vampires, the pathologically entitled — whatever you call these individuals — is important, it’s only half the equation. The other half of the equation is YOU.

At the risk of sounding like a broken MP3 file, you have to have boundaries. And having boundaries begins with self-respect and self-care. Self-respect and self-care have a reciprocal relationship. If you respect yourself you take care of yourself. If you take care of yourself you’re less likely to allow others to disrespect and mistreat you.
