There was a point in time when it was shocking for people to get divorced, horrifying for a single woman to have a baby, and sinful for a mother to leave her husband. Times have changed, but don’t be fooled…those old social norms are still hiding under the surface. I can say from first hand … Read more
Sometimes, disordered people can act normal, or even nice! Of course we already know this, because the narcissist was probably pretty good when we first met them, or else we wouldn’t have fallen for them, right? Even when they start showing us their true colors, we often cling to the good parts and assume the … Read more
***This post is in reference to the male who shot at multiple politicians yesterday; however I am not going to discuss his politics. I’m going to review his history and how he is the typical sociopath. I ask everyone to please refrain from political comments. Many of us have strong political views…and many of us … Read more
Be careful about telling people to “get over it” and call their estranged relatives or exes. Not every conflict is two-sided. Sometimes one side is just a toxic person!

Today, I … Read more
Even though I have blocked my sociopath ex and all of his flying monkeys in every way possible, we still have common acquaintances, and I still sometimes see references to one of them. It usually startles me, and I have to remind myself not to post what I really think about that person, even though … Read more
I attend a church that emphasizes the importance of family–more so than any other church I’ve ever attended. This means that, not only do I hear the regular speeches about forgiving my abusive mother, but I hear it even more, and from a religious point of view. “Families are forever.” Most of these people mean … Read more
My sociopath ex’s main flying monkey is so severe and manipulative, that I’m convinced she is a sociopath too. I’m not the only one she bullies, although I seem to be her main target. (It is not unlike a sociopath to pick a main target to stalk and harass.) She bullies many others, yet she … Read more
