Do you know the warning signs?
“Lizzie Borden took an Axe, Gave her mother forty whacks, when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one.”
In the movie psycho, Norman Bates killed his over-bearing mother.
The terms for such a murder is called matricide.
While Statistics suggest it is a rare occurrence,
there are famous cases, such as the Lizzie Borden case.
Another occurrence known as infanticide is when someone kills their baby.
So that begs the question, why would someone commit such heinous crimes?
I believe only someone fitting the profile of a sociopath could be so cold-blooded.
Classic signs of a sociopath are:
- They have a lack of empathy for others
- They are incapable of love or natural human compassion
- They make a common practice of manipulative behavior
- Often they are merciless and cold
- They are always trying to justify behavior they know is wrong
Well known sociopaths include Adolf Hitler, Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Richard Ramirez, and the “Son of Sam” David Berkowitz. What drives sociopaths is often a need for power,They are more often then not, very vicious,brutal and dominating in their daily associations they may think themselves smarter than average or superior.
Not all sociopaths are obvious at first, Ted Bundy demonstrated this fact. He practiced law by day, while breaking it by night.
Upon his arrest, the community he lived in was shocked.
If someone is displaying the above signs or abusing you, don’t just bear it.
Run for safety before it escalates.
Do not let your abuser intimidate you, they crave power.
If you stand up for yourself, then your abuser can’t gain the upper hand.
Get help whatever it takes.
