The Psychopath and Drama

Psychopaths love to declare their hatred of drama, but you’ll find there is more drama surrounding them than anyone you have ever met in your life. At first you will think you are going crazy – feeling jealous, playing detective, disliking people you have never even met. But all of those things are intentional – in Psychopathic language it’s called “Crazy-Making”. Psychopaths are constantly manufacturing paranoia, competition and drama. Then they sit back and act innocent, judging you for reacting (as they hoped you would) to the unpleasant situations they have created.

Some people stay hooked for a long time, or forever, constantly drawn back into the arena by the psychopaths false flattery and pathological lies. Others manage to escape, no longer believing the lies. The discard phase now begins – the person who had so many positive attributes that the Psychopath once couldn’t stop waxing lyrical about is now the “Crazy”, “Oversensitive”, “Bi-Polar” “Bitter” one.

Welcome such labels for it is a sign that you found the common denominator in all of the Psychopaths behaviour, which always keeps the same pattern – Idealise, Devalue, Discard. Now that you’ve left it all behind you’re on the route to healing and true happiness.

Mindfulness

One reason why people find it difficult to stay in the present moment is that they don’t understand that their thinking changes in a low mood. Never believe your own thoughts when you are in a low mood otherwise you will frighten yourself with your own negative thinking/imagination. Watch how when the low mood passes your thinking becomes better. Therefore thoughts are not real if they can change with your mood. To quote Shakespeare “There’s nothing good or bad but thinking makes it so”.
