How to say No to narcissistic person?

Hello,

As the title states, there is one cult that might be trying to convert me. There is one woman who used to have power over me, manipulated me. After I realized what is going on I cut all ties with them, but recently I observed her using same manipulation techniques.

I told them direct no several times before, sounds like don't take No as an answer, but I ignore them so much they have no other option.

I am a bit concerned about that woman though - she still have some influence over me... Lastly I just ignored her, she did not mind at all and tried at me her stuff.

Is there some way to shield myself from this?

It happens rather rarely, I meet them as little as possible and mostly it is just accident, but just in case...

It’s the fact that you say no that is the shield. When you cannot be controlled or used in some way, you become ‘useless’ to the person attempting. Eventually they decide to try elsewhere but it does not mean they won’t ever try again.

Your persistent no meets their persistent return until the other backs down and leaves it out, it’s a bit like an in person stare down :D
