    Is My Ex A Sociopath?

    I wanted to be a shrink once. I'm going to channel my work 'self' momentarily and give all of you questioners some advice. So, is your ex a sociopath? Here's the answer: it doesn't matter. The fact that you have been led to this line of questioning about someone else's behavior...

    Being Reborn.

    Hello. I am a sociopath. I have known this for a long time, though I had forgotten. I found/find it difficult to cope with sometimes. I hold all of the pros and cons of this fact in my head. I am different. This is good because it means that I am special. I have the potential to...

    Emotions fruit the best poems But

    For many years I refused to believe

    or even accept that I was a psychopath, as I'm a twice diagnosed one. I still have a hard time accepting it, mainly because I feel that being a psychopath or a sociopath is having a flaw, and I can't accept that. I don't have any flaws. Not even the person 'closest' to me could...

    For every situation I have a different

    personality. I turn into a different person without thinking it's like I really have no personality just react to my surroundings. I've learned to blend in. No one knows the true me because there is no true me

    I find it amusing to no end that such a group was created.  Why would sociopaths conglomerate in a group where, if indeed the majority of the members are other sociopaths, they are constantly attempting to dominate each other through discussing better and better conquests...

    Something I find extremely idiotic is

    when people say "my other half". Oh, so you require another person to justify your existence? Are you really so insecure that you value someone else as being half of who you are? How pathetic.

    There is no real me, Only an entity,

    Something allusory, and though I can hide my cold gaze and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable: I simply are not there.

    Stop. We hate and destroy you because you are the light that was destroyed in us by the Parental Units and DNA. Using you has nothing to do with you! It has to do with our projective hate of what we lost in our youth. Move on. We love pain and you are the mirror that we love to...

    Who Believes the Self-confessed Sociopath?

    I don't believe half the people who claim to be sociopaths. I will admit that all who claim that (especially using their real identities) are certainly screwed up individuals. Why should you believe me that I am? Who cares? Just read. The labels really don't matter. Narcissist...

    I Am A Sociopath - A Coming Out Story.

    Coming out as a sociopath can be akin to coming out as gay to a family full of hard core Christians. There is a lot of stigma attached to being a sociopath. So why do it? As a sociopath you would think I would be more about self preservation. Well this in a sense is self...
