my brother is a narcissist

Every two months or so, I've met him for breakfast to chat and "catch up". Thanks to this forum and everyone's shared experience and wisdom, it has become clear to me that his intention is to take me captive as "his" to "mentor" (don't need it) and control and instruct and put on the right path because well, you know, he's God...NOT! I want to "break up" with him without insulting him or giving him or the other members of my family fodder to label ME the sick one.

Does anyone have any words of wisdom you can share?

MaybeIt would be better to simply distance yourself from him, and just never be available when he wants to meet up, I dont realy know why your family would think you are the sick one?......

Thanks for your input...a

Thanks for your input...a "phasing out" may be the only way. Coming out of a family teeming with narcissistic qualities...qualities that created my narciasistic brother, I need to be very careful how I "navigate" their "system". Like individual narcissists, my narcissistic family (as a unit) is consistently looking for someone to project guilt onto. In this case, the potential scapegoat would be me. Thanks again...
