    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...

    I saw someone just like me today.

    That same cold, dead stare, the fake strained smile, that intimidating aura of confidence, and charm. I did not like it, not at all. Looks like i have some new competition.

    Right Or Wrong?

    In my lifetime of being a sociopath I have opened up to 3 people about it. 1. My longtime confidant and "best friend" 2. Another sociopath. 3. My girlfriend. Each time omitting the second one, It was met with disdain or disgust. They accepted me, but accepted me as if I had a...

    I never really feel bad

    for the things I do. I always act like I do though. I can't have my uncaringness tarnish my outward social appearance. I don't like to be judged, unless the end result is praise. When I get angry I become a different person. I become malicious. I will readily And easily...

    and why? - Your parent you haven't seen in a long time messages you overly emotional about how they have not seen you. I know I should probably go... But I couldn't care.

    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...

    I believe I'm a sociopath.

    All of my serious long term relationships (including friendships) have failed, simply because I get bored of people after being around them for a while. Most people know I'm a very blunt individual, but when I'm with the right people, I'm downright harsh. I don't feel sorry for...

    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...

    The quote of the day from Dexter: You’re

    emotionally colorblind.You use the right words, you pantomime the right behavior, but the feelings never come to pass. You know the dictionary definition of emotions. Longing, joy, sorrow. But you have no idea what any of those things actually feel like.

    Just for debate purposes. Is sociopathy something we are born with? Or can it develop through outside elements?

    I'm probably not alone in saying that relationships are hard to maintain once a person is no longer of use and is rather just a bother. I've been dating a girl for the past 3 months and she's been great to me. However, the moment has come where dealing with her is just a chore...

    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.
