Yep. Another client hits their limit. Typical for those who are the most tolerant, when they've had enough, the other is often shocked at the most normal of responses that would be common and expected from anyone else. "How dare you set me straight." "How dare you set a boundary." "How dare you not be infinitely patient, forever and put up with my ugliness." 😏
Gotta train them young, or expect the recoil. You teach people how to treat you. No matter, no shame, no blame. You do better when you know better. So, HOLD YOUR GROUND, learn your boundaries, be clear and express them. And move on from those who won't don't respect them (Respect you). Respect starts at home - With Self Respect. 😇 Be aware, there is a common pairing of the narcissist and empath. Difficult for the empath, but a good teacher to learn how not to be a doormat, or vampire food.... Speak your truth. Respect yourself. Teach others to respect you.
