Sociopaths V/S Garden Variety LiarsPosted: June 3, 2011
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.

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
