The easiest one is just to pay close attention to your ratio of positive to negative things coming out of your mouth. This is something people often do, from genuine complaints to griping about minor things, but it can really deflate those around you. Then they start saying a ton of negative things which brings you down and so on and so forth.ย 

Just try and keep a mental tally for a bit, you'll likely realize its way off, and that alone helps bring things back in line.

communication is 90% what you dont say, that being said there is alot of narccistic psycopaths out their who will gaslight all day and cause sometimes irreversable damageย 

-Grandiose sense of self-importance

-ย Lives in a fantasy world that supports their delusions of grandeur
-ย Needs constant praise and admiration

-ย Exploits others without guilt or shame -ย Frequently demeans, intimidates, bullies, or belittles others

Dealing with a narcissist: Donโ€™t fall for the fantasy Narcissists can be very magnetic and charming. They are very good at creating a fantastical, flattering self-image that draw us in. Weโ€™re attracted to their apparent confidence and lofty dreamsโ€”and the shakier our own self-esteem, the more seductive the allure. Itโ€™s easy to get caught up in their web, thinking that they will fulfill our longing to feel more important, more alive. But itโ€™s just a fantasy, and a costly one at that.
Your needs wonโ€™t be fulfilled (or even recognized). Itโ€™s important to remember that narcissists arenโ€™t looking for partners; theyโ€™re looking for obedient admirers. Your sole value to the narcissist is as someone who can tell them how great they are to prop up their insatiable ego. Your desires and feelings donโ€™t count.
Look at the way the narcissist treats others. If the narcissist lies, manipulates, hurts, and disrespects others, he or she will eventually treat you the same way. Donโ€™t fall for the fantasy that youโ€™re different and will be spared.
Take off the rose-colored glasses. Itโ€™s important to see the narcissist in your life for who they really are, not who you want them to be. Stop making excuses for bad behavior or minimizing the hurt itโ€™s causing you. Denial will not make it go away. The reality is that narcissists are very resistant to change, so the true question you must ask yourself is whether you can live like this indefinitely.
Focus on your own dreams. Instead of losing yourself in the narcissistโ€™s delusions, focus on the things you want for yourself. What do you want to change in your life? What gifts would you like to develop? What fantasies do you need to give up in order to create a more fulfilling reality?'
