... is there? The photo situation is not resolved and I was gonna ask you how I can translate the "no"s I've expressed to him into language he can understand... but it's impossible.
There is no "no" in Narcissese. When they want something, they won't understand politely phrased "no"s. They'll refuse to.
After another, more polite request for photos, after which my husband remembered we had a few other pics we could send, I sent him three relatively lame photos, one of which didn't even include us - it was a landscape.
Now he texted me, asking for MORE.
I said "I don't know what else to send you. I'm not like you, I don't take hundreds of pictures every month."
Was that a "no"? Or did I hallucinate? I thought that meant "no" - I'm not sending any more photos.
"Then send me all you've got, even if it's only 10 photos."
Google has a suggested search "telling a narcissist no" which I used. The search, however, yields no actual practical advice.
The question exists. The answer doesn't.
Do you have one for me?
