Once one is able to stay calm and learn how to survive narcissistic abuse by compartmentalizing and subsequently depersonalizing it, everyday life seems to become easier to bear, reports most survivors who have already used the gray rock technique (or something similar) to help keep them physically safe, mentally well, and emotionally sound with the dawning of recognition.

The cool thing about not being a Narcissist by nurture or nature (or any other sort of Cluster B personality) is that average and even above-average people are readily able to change. The Narcissist (on the other hand) is bound intellectually and emotionally to psychologically and spiritually perpetually remaining the same.
