I love to read!
Mainly True Crime, Serial Killer stuff but also a few novels, fiction like The Flowers In The Attic series, Survivor Stories and stories that explain how people think or tick.
I borrowed a book from my neighbor, titled ‘The Sociopath Next Door’…and yes, she lives next door! But, I digress . .. The scary thing about this book is; I see a lot of Sociopathic traits in my friend, Tra. Tra says terrible things about people! Example, she put on Facebook that she wishes she had aborted her daughter because her daughter accused her of being a racist, and a few other things. She Hates her sister and says she is dead to her; even laughing when bad things happen to her, She also Hates her neighbor as well as her not yet Ex-Husband and wishes them both dead. She believes if she Hates someone, you should too, or at least have nothing to do with them, and you can’t disagree with her much or you will hear her wrath. She also puts a lot of Whoa is me, my life sucks and no one likes me posts on Facebook which is a major sign of a Sociopath. They play into pity. She is one of those people who puts her whole life on Facebook, which, I personally, find ridiculous.
While the book does recommend staying away from people like that, I believe it is also good to just stay aware.
Tra and I do not get together to often and when we do, I pretty much just listen without taking sides.
So, back to the title and question:
What are you reading? And
Is it affecting your life?
