• Coping with Infuriating, Mean, Critical People by Nina W. Brown

The Critical Narcissist

“The critical narcissist can lead you to feeling shame, guilt, pushed away, devalued, wanting to leave, and engaging in considerable self-blame. What words trigger shame and/or guilt for you? …these are your trigger words. Knowing your triggers can help you use some of the other strategies, showing you when to use them; this knowledge can also help prevent your emotions from intensifying or escalating. Once you have identified your trigger words, you can stay consciously aware of when they are used and tell yourself that you do not have to have the usual response.”
