(I came upon this meme yesterday while surfing about Facebook. It provoked a small reaction I shared on my Facebook page and I wanted to share it here.)
Sociopaths ruin our happiness just by interjecting themselves into our lives.
Did anyone seek out the sociopath? I doubt it! More than likely you were secretly stalked like me and then swooped down upon and “captured” in the sociopath’s net.
They are shit people who can’t create their own joy. They see yours. They want it. They covet it. And they’ll stoop to the dirtiest of tricks (like calling you their “angel” and “the one” and “the love of their life”) to get it.
Be careful of those charismatic liars who smile at everything you say and agree with all of your philosophies upon first meeting you.
Ask them, “What do you think? What’s your opinion?”
If they repeatedly smile and repeat what you’ve said as their truth, remain distant. If you have to work with this person, keep it professional. Don’t open up yourself. Hold back. If it’s intimate, bow out gracefully as soon as you can. If its a new friendship, just stop engaging the sociopath.
Regardless of the relationship’s nature, once you distance yourself from the sociopath, you close the door on their influence, ultimately protecting yourself from potential danger.
