Living with, Loving and LEAVING the Sociopath Narcissist


Are You With a Sociopath Or Someone With Narcissism?
By Sandra L. Brown

As a psychotherapist, I see more people come in for counseling related to people in their lives who are a sociopath or who have narcissism than almost any other reason. Why?

Both of these disorders are related to a permanent disorder which we call psychopathy. Sociopaths and Narcissistic Personality Disorder are both personality disorders that form when the person is under the age of seven. Unfortunately, there is no going back and reforming a sociopaths’ personality formation or structure. Likewise, narcissism can not be reversed either. People come into counseling frustrated and wondering why the sociopath or the narcissist doesn’t ‘change’ or ‘grow’ or ‘take responsibility for their decisions.’

Breaking up with a sociopath narcissist? Be prepared for the battle of your life! While you are an emotional basketcase, he is as Cold as Ice! While you are left holding down the fort and dealing with the real-life responsibilities, he walks away from everything leaving you to mop off his stage and pay his bills. He will punish you in ways you couldn't possibly have ever imagined...

....and not even acknowledge it to himself! Why? Because he's off charming the socks off of new women as if your years together didn't even exist!

The sociopathic narcissistic ex continually acts in abusive, bewildering and confusing ways. He is not above committing destructive acts. When the breakup becomes a reality, it is likely that his 'false persona' will completely disappear all together and you will most likely experience the most hurtful of behavior from him. He is completely lacking in empathy, and - since he is not receiving any admiration from you anymore - he will dismiss you and discard you as worthless to him, consequently dropping any fake front that he use to put up in order to keep you in the relationship.

People are damaged in relationships with someone who is a sociopath or someone with narcissism. That’s because pathology means that someone with these kinds of disorders cannot ‘change, grow or develop insight about how their behaviors affect others.’ Therefore, counseling or medication cannot help a sociopath or a narcissist that cannot ‘grow, change, or develop insight.’ The damage to others is in the waiting…waiting for the sociopath to step up to the plate—to go to counseling, to change, to stop conning. But it never happens. And 10 years down the road, the person is finally starting to get it that the sociopath ‘can’t change.’ Or in narcissism, there is not change.

Part of the work I do is in Public Psychopathy Education—which is to help the public learn to spot psychopathy and permanent disorders in others. You can’t avoid what you don’t know about. Please educate yourself on dangerous and permanent disorders.
