Sociopaths V/S Garden Variety Liars


A sociopath is different from a Garden Variety Liar. A Sociopath doesn’t feel any remorse and just continues to behave the same way over and over making excuses that it’s every one else’s fault. Charming and exciting they can make you believe any thing.

Weirdly, It’s easier to feel sorry for them.  It is almost like they are born with out a conscience.

It’s us who have guts who feel and know right from wrong that I get so frustrated  with. We are aware enough to know to do something about our behavior, but we don’t. WHY?

This is such an amazing question to me.

This does not only apply to addicts of drugs and alcohol, but addicts of a different sense who are so sneaky that are much more dangerous to our psyche.

Scott Peck calls them People of the Lie .. scary book.

There are those, too, who suffer from grave emotional and mental disorders, but many of them do recover if they have the capacity to be honest..” Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 58

    This so describes someone who has come back onto my radar, engaging in ta hurricane of outrageous behavior as she did 19 years and, and 10 years before that, and as always placing the responsibility on other people for her attitudes, choices and actions and the serious collateral damage from all.

    An excellent topic for thought, and a very scary book.

      Once a liar always a liar. I just don’t get how we put up with it. And blame every one else around the liar, but the liar themselves. It’s almost like we don’t want to really know they are that evil.
