No contact rule is a tactic in order to break relations with a narcissist, psychopath or other emotional manipulator. As the name says, it is about eliminating all sorts of contact with the emotional manipulator and severing all links with them so that we can no longer communicate in any manner. For instance not confronting the narcissist under any circumstances (whether you’re alone, in public or surrounded by friends). Not contacting or messaging or e-mailing the narcissist. Blocking the narcissist’s phone numbers and e-mail addresses, not taking calls from unfamiliar numbers and if necessary changing your phone number. Blocking and erasing all the social media accounts belonging to the narcissist (in fact, deactivating your own accounts as well if you’re concerned about the narcissist finding a method to follow you anyway or if you’re scared you may continue monitoring their profiles). Changing your passwords. If your common acquaintances are unable to perceive the real colors of the narcissist, cutting them from your life. Not discussing any private information with individuals you’re going to continue seeing (so that the narcissist cannot obtain any knowledge about you) and stopping them from telling you anything about the narcissist. Avoiding any areas you could see the narcissist in, attempting not to go anywhere near their home or business or the other places the narcissist typically travels to. Despite all this, the narcissist may persist on getting in contact with you. They might emerge right in front of your home, school or office most unexpectedly. They might continue pestering you by giving you presents or flowers. In this instance, attempt to continue observing the no touch rule and avoid overreacting. If feasible and essential, you may acquire a restraining order. There’s a tremendous difference between breaking up with a narcissist and breaking up with an emotionally healthy person. Leaving a narcissist is such a tough as well as a risky task. Narcissists feel rejected when someone attempts to create boundaries between them or stop the relationship all together. They can’t take breakup the way a normal person would. They can do everything to retain you, in other words, their narcissistic nourishment supply.
