In their controlling and delusional minds, sociopaths believe they have us eternally caged and contained.

And then we flutter away…

Namaste!

  3. Yes, Paula, I believe when we “flutter away” we are exerting the ultimate force by removing ourselves from a sociopath’s sphere of influence. It totally messes up their game. They don’t ever see it coming and I believe it kind of stuns them. For some reason in their little minds they think we are forced to stick around and deal with them. Once we leave, they are forced to go find themselves a new unsuspecting victim, target or whatever role we filled. Brings to mind a song by Madonna years ago called the “Power of Goodbye”. I love the lyric: “There’s no greater power than the power of goodbye.” It’s the one weapon we have that they can’t really fight back against. Here are the lyrics:

    Your heart is not open so I must go
    The spell has been broken, I loved you so
    Freedom comes when you learn to let go
    Creation comes when you learn to say no

    You were my lesson I had to learn
    I was your fortress you had to burn
    Pain is a warning that something’s wrong
    I pray to God that it won’t be long
    Do ya wanna go higher?

    [Chorus:]

    There’s nothing left to try
    There’s no place left to hide
    There’s no greater power
    Than the power of good-bye

    Your heart is not open so I must go
    The spell has been broken, I loved you so
    You were my lesson I had to learn
    I was your fortress

    [Chorus2:]

    There’s nothing left to lose
    There’s no more heart to bruise
    There’s no greater power
    Than the power of good-bye

    Learn to say good-bye
    I yearn to say good-bye
