They spend their lives learning how to mimic normal human emotions, but they don’t actually experience any of those feelings.Things like compassion, love, trust, and forgiveness — all just convenient vulnerabilities to be exploited.They tell you how much they have in common with you — how perfect you are for them.Like a chameleon, they mirror your hopes, dreams, and insecurities to form an immediate bond of trust and excitement.You probably once considered yourself to be an exceptionally easygoing person, but an encounter with a psychopath will (temporarily) turn that notion upside down. You've noticed them pathologically lying and making excuses.There is always an excuse for everything, even things that don’t require excusing.They call you needy after intentionally ignoring you for days on end.They use your manufactured reactions to garner sympathy from other targets, trying to prove how “hysterical” you’ve become.
They become dismissive and critical if you attempt to disprove their fabrications with facts.
Psychopaths look like you and me, but there’s one big difference: they don’t have a conscience.
They can harm others with absolutely no sense of remorse or guilt.
But to those who are unfortunate enough to become close to a psychopath, a nightmare will begin to unfold.
What starts as a fairy tale slowly transforms into an incomprehensible mess of mind games and chaos.
