How can one gain freedom from a covert narcissistic boss when she doesn’t have the needed funds to start her own business? His toxic aura affects my immune system.
If I were in your shoes, and I couldn’t leave right away, I would profile the narcissist I’m dealing with. Understand what they desire, what triggers them, and learn what strategy you can put in place to help you achieve your goals which means, understanding their goals and how to deal with them.
When I clocked out, I would be clocking out of anything that has to do with work or the narc boss.
Self-care and healing should be a priority. Having a therapist and/or coach that understands narcissistic abuse and how it affects victims is essential to staying sane during your time with this boss.
Also, reward yourself with something for getting through the day/week with this toxic person.
If you can find a way to disconnect with this person emotionally and look at them differently so you can manage how you interact with them, it can really make a shift for you.
In the meantime, I would be finding solutions to start my own business, even if it was starting a side hustle first. See if there are loans, talk with other people who do own their own business in your industry, you never know what would pop up. As you make shifts, things will shift around you.
