Like exercise, whatever hobby or work motivation etc. And sort of reframe it so you get a thrill from that instead. I do that with my rage sometimes anyway and it can help. And also I'm always trying to reframe my narcisism or how I get my 'supply' to be more productive for me in that I feel better about it and it could help me long term. For example focussing more on self-improvement to be more perfect, being ambitious about the future etc. rather than succumbing to a quick fix which may just make me annoyed after or cause problems anyway and not be worth it etc. I think it could help with boredom too. Don't know if that could apply in your case though?

Are you in a DBT group?
I'm not sure what a DBT group is?

You were talking so freely about BPD and NPD I thought u were diagnosed and that with such a diagnosi a therapist / doctor would also give you some information what you can do about it.
DBT is kind of the standard one for BPD . At least here there is also Skills / Skill-Training groups that are offered in clinics for exampel where you can just go no strings attached. Maybe check around if theres something like that where you live, too. There should also be books on the subject for self-help purposes. Last but not least for DBT experience(s) I guess the BPD subforum here on PsychForums will have people who can share.
