I am a very big believer in the Sociopath…Apath….Empath….Triad.
I absolutely know this occurs and have endured it many times in my life.
Me – The Empath/Prey
Sociopath – The Abuser
Apaths – The abusers supporters/minions, who collude, enable, encourage and often do the sociopaths abusive work for them.
I know these Apaths come in different forms.
- Those who are gullible and naïve
- Those who know the sociopath is dodgy, but gain something from the relationship with them
- Those who are also sociopaths/narcissists, but just don’t have the guts to be overt about it
All of these apaths, are still making ‘choices’ to go along with the sociopaths.
If these apaths, do wrong, like ganging up on the empath, calling the empath names, attacking them, spreading gossip, lies, slander etc…then they *are* responsible for those actions, that abuse.
This has happened during the abuse from the CEO of a UK PTSD page, who has now been charged with fraud.
The truth has now come out.
I have received 3 apologies.
One was genuine and remorseful – I believe her and I believe she is the naïve, gullible apath.. and we are friendly now 🙂
Two were not genuine – because they were not remorseful, one projecting blame back onto the sociopath and I believe they are the as stated as No 2 – above on the list of apath types.
One person involved – completely denied she did anything wrong and has been very narc like in her attitude, being more like No 3 – above on the apath types.
It has been interesting watching them and how they have responded, reacted and their heart attitude.
I have accepted the genuine apology and shown forgiveness, because I believe in that and I believe in not holding grudges and in wiping the slate clean. And I am thankful for her, because I have rarely ever received an apology for any harm that has been done to me. So it shows – there *are* some people willing to do that. And it shows to me, that some apaths – are just very gullible and naïve, but once they realise the truth – they can sort it out appropriately.
The two non genuine apologies, I don’t really accept, but will say no more and let it be. But, I know those apologies are only for themselves, to make themselves feel better and not anything to do with me.
The denial of apology – well she has issues and I leave her to deal with that.
I can work out human behaviour, easily.
Bottom line….if you do wrong to another…..you need to ‘own it’.
You need to apologise – with a genuine heart.
Even if you were duped by a sociopath.
I always learn through everything.
