There are sociopaths in our midst and we don’t even know it. Someone with a personality disorder manifesting itself in antisocial behaviour and attitudes. It’s not something we think about but perhaps we should start.
If you have been around people who demean you and others to make themselves feel better, you’ll know how their behaviour works. They behave with malicious intent, to make themselves feel better and to take the attention off themselves.
It’s about control, it’s like a fix they’ve got to have. It’s a bully tactic that makes others feel worse. For those who do it, their behaviour doesn’t start and end there, it’s probably something they’ve done for years with their parents before them.
It’s a sign of them being insecure, but they will never acknowledge they’re actions are as a result of their insecurities. Their behaviour is about dominance. They have to try harder to win at being more dominant because that gives them the control over their lives and other people’s lives.
A massive contrast to those who are happy and confident and who are genuinely happy for other people to be successful. The irony is that we can all turn our lives around and become confident and happy. We don’t have to stay like that.
