One of the things I am constantly telling my patients is not to overthink their actions. And that is what I am telling myself as I write this first blog entry.
I’ve never written a blog before. I’ve written essays, dissertations and books but never anything quite like this, so I hope you’ll bear with me as I stumble my way through the learning process.
I’ve spent my entire life as a sociopath and more than half of that life educating myself on the subject and working with others like me. I have so much information to share it’s overwhelming. Having discovered the keys to existing as a high-functioning sociopath in modern society, I want to start screaming from the rooftops. I want to help the entire sociopathic population – not just those who find themselves sitting in my office.
Here’s why: I know what it’s like to feel alone and I know that the information available on modern sociopaths is extremely limited. Worse than that, it’s one-dimentional: grossly incomplete, largely negative and written by people who operate from fear instead of knowledge.
I want to change that.
Sociopaths are extraordinary people in every sense of the word. Different, perhaps. Limited in our emotional scope, absolutely. But human. Remarkable. Complex. Curious. And tremendous in number. I always suspected this, but now I am certain. After years of working in the psychological field I know without question that the sociopath population is in the millions. People like me.
People like you.
I created this website to help the sociopaths of the world. I may not get it right every time and it may take me a while to figure out the best way to present the information but make no mistake, my goal is to help.
I want to share my story in the hopes others can benefit from reading it. I want to post research and clinical information designed to provide a better understanding of the sociopathic self. I want to use my sense of humor, however dark, to speak honestly and confront boldly the misconceptions that keep all of us from living authentically.
I want to unite, educate, entertain, normalize and fortify. And that’s what I plan to do.
But for now, I will leave you with this: You are not alone. You are not crazy. You are not terrible. You’re a sociopath.
And you’re in spectacular company.
