Take it off your chest...
Read Rules

I sincerely think I'm a psychopath, looking to my lack of empathy in all situations. Whenever something terrible happens, I don't react like other people. Instead, I act as I think I am supposed to..

  • Hi there - I know I'm much too late for you to read this comment, but I still wanted to tell you: I am a diagnosed psychopath. I can hide it well, and only my closest friends know about it. Most people consider me a normal girl, a bit energetic though, but I am quite popular and have a lot of "friends" - not that I care about most of them, or any of them emotionally. But mentally, I have a few friends that are very important to me. I can bond with them on an intellectual level, and they still make me laugh. Yes, some psychopaths become violent mass murders and are totally nuts, but there are some of us who live a normal life and can actually use our disorder to become more successfull. I have the dynamics of society figured out from the outside, and if I want to, I can manipulate people to do whatever I want without them noticing. I don't do it often, and normally not to my friends (although I did it FOR my friends a few times) and got quite a few promotions and pay rises out of it, so that I can afford a good lifestyle. I genuinely care about my cat (I think this is the closest I'll ever get to real love) and although I never had a lasting relationship, I don't feel that I'm missing romantic love any more. Before I knew what was up with me, I thought I was a bad person and that never experiencing love was the punishment for not caring about my friends and family like I'm supposed to, but I learned that people are content with the masquerade of emotions I put on for them. Sometimes I'm left wondering what it would be like if I was normal - if my life would be better or worse. But I think living as a psychopath is actually the easy option. We don't experience pain and heartbreak, we are never terrified of our own feelings. And I'd be lying if I said being able to talk people into doing what I want isn't great for my sex life ...
