    In all my days I have only felt safe around a handful of individuals. Those criteria of 'safe' people are exactly the types that are not safe. So I must assume that this is mostly a subjective stance at best. Yes the 'safe' people are easiest to be around. Yes 'safe' people will have your back as long as you tow the line. But, and this is a massive but, they are the first to turn on you for whatever reason they concoct because they themselves never feel safe and never trust anyone. It is in the nature of the 'safe' person to always question, to always look for anomalies, and to never let anyone get away with anything. that is the opposite of 'safe'.

    And while the unsafe person may have vested interests, that's okay because so do the 'safe' people. The difference is that the 'unsafe' person is known to have them and admits it while the 'safe' person denies they have such tendencies.

    So, in all my years I have had a handful of absolutely 'safe' friends and none of them were 'safe' people. Yet these same 'unsafe' people would have laid down their lives for me just as I would for them. In their presence I was completely safe.

    Go figure
    Forget about it

    How Do Narcissists REACT When IGNORED
    11/25/19
    Jess Stanley

    ( Some new to me, useful info. I just had an experience with a narcissist's "flying monkey", a first for me. )

    "No matter the reason WHY you're ignoring a narcissist they are definitely going to notice and react to what you're doing.
    There's several different ways they choose to react and this is a list of those possibilities so you can KNOW what's coming!
    This will be ESPECIALLY helpful if you're contemplating no contact."
