Are sociopaths capable of feeling sadness guilt or regret and do they ever feel bad even if it is only for themselves?
Sociopaths and feelings
- Sociopaths have NO conscience, though they know the difference between right and wrong. So they don't experience remorse or a sense of guilt. Usually they even have great difficulty owning their actions. In other words, they often can't even bring themselves to say, "Yes, I did this" if it's something society disapprove of.
- Another key characteristic of sociopaths is callousness and lack of empathy, so genuine sadness for others is something they aren't capable of.
- Many sociopaths are quite good actors. They know how to pretend to show sympathy and so on. Sometimes they give themselves away by displaying exaggerated or even melodramatic sympathy that doesn't ring true. Always look out for uncalled for drama.
- As for 'feeling bad for themselves', it usually takes the form of aggressive self-pity. As they can't accept responsibility for their own actions, they blame their misfortunes on others.
- Sociopaths are sharks in deep water. Sociopaths absolutely have no conscience and that also includes the law. To them laws are to be broken and they do not adhere to the regular social lives of others. Sociopaths don't even have pity for themselves because they have no conscience. They are callous, unforgiving, cruel and get great pleasure out of demeaning, harming another human being (even in some cases animals.) When looking into a Sociopath's eyes it's like looking at "shark eyes" ... dark, unmoving and dangerous!
- That "eye thing" has to do with a number of factors -- a sociopath will stare almost unblinkingly into another person's eyes because they watch people's reactions far more closely than most people. Why? Most other people are much better at reading each others' emotions, and at hearing what emotion is present in other people's voices. Thus, when a sociopath is "acting" and displaying tears, or some such, it is considered excessive or unreal because the tone of voice may be incongruous or the chosen words may not fit the emotion being synthesized.
- The state that a sociopath is in during a display of emotion such as weeping is simply like mental "static" -- a generalized discomfort that is almost impossible to differentiate and is then focused on getting some kind of substitute gratification. Without a conscience, it isn't possible to influence other people the way most people do, so sociopaths do it by manipulation, although sometimes what they display comes pretty close to what they'd be feeling in a given situation if they were instead normal.
- As for the eyes and emotion, many sociopaths display a sadistic glint of glee as they abandon themselves to depraved behavior and subject their victims to excruciating pain. At such moments they experience intense pleasure and may even laugh excitedly with joy.

Why does the abuser allow guilt to play a superior role when being abusive when they themselves seem to feel no guilt?
Answer . They dont feel guilty because they actually believe theyre right and not only that but the power they feel they have over you is stronger than any guilt they may have had.. Answer . Manipulating guilt is a powerful control mechanism.. Answer . First, they don't see themselves as …abusive. Second, they believe they did nothing wrong. Third, they use guilt as a form of control. Why would they feel guilty if they believe they are not? God Bless. Answer . I think some abusers have such a poor grasp of how guilt actually feels and what it means (at best frequently mixing it up with shame, which can be imposed from without) that they see it as a weakness.. An abuser is, at heart, a bully, bullies exploit weakness.. Also remember that abusers can use a lot of violence, because they know it hurts, because it would hurt them into submission too, and that is one reason why they persist in offering violence before violence can be offered to them...

The consensus is that they do not feel guilt. Read on for the reasons: The narcissist has a diminished capacity to empathize so he rarely feels sorry for what he does. He almost never puts himself in the shoes of his "victims". Actually, he doesn't regards them as victims at all! It is very common …for the narcissist to feel victimized, deprived and discriminated against. He projects his own moods, cognition, emotions, and actions onto others. None whatsoever. It's a brutal and simple as that. If they seem to feel remorse, they are faking it and doing it to manipulate you because they can get more narcissistic supply from you. I they seem "too inhuman", you will leave but every now and then, they pretend to keep you along for the horror ride. Given the fact that they are out of touch with reality-they never realize what they have done to their victims .And since they can not tell fact from fiction , they figure whatever happened to you must be your own fault.The world of the narcissist is pure fantasyland.Guilt;accepting blame, or "I'm sorry" is not in their vocabulary. Not without professional counseling. No they don't. Even with professional counseling, they will at best agree that they did something wrong. Their lack guilt can anger their victims to the point of behaving in ways they would never have thought before, thus making the victim look worse than the Narcissist himself/herself. (MORE)
How do you get rid of the feelings of love you still feel for a sociopath even though you are no longer in contact?
ANSWER: I am very sorry you are experiencing this. I am too, and it is such a troubling emotion. I know, sometimes you feel like you are obsessing. Sometimes you remember all the wonderful times and your heart starts breaking worse. You are doing the right thing by not maintaining contact. Reme…mber what really happened. Be very honest with yourself. See the situation for what it really was. You were very much in love, the sociopath was using you. Yes, using you. They really do not know how to treat people correctly, it simply is not in their mental makeup. They have a disorder. You are very hurt because you care about this person. The sociopath does not care about others. I don't mean to be callous, truly. This is just the way this disease/pathology is ANSWER: When you love someone, the love never really goes away it just changes. Over time this love for this person can become less overwhelming and then less important and eventually a much less significant memory. There's a joke that goes something like "to get over a man get under another". Well, if you fall in love with someone else you will automatically no longer be in love with the ex, unfortunately you don't have control over the next time you will fall in love again, so you must make do with the time healing solution for now which is no fun but it works somewhat well to the extent that it will reduce and probably even eliminate the pain associated with this feeling of loss. With time you will get used to the feeling of missing the ex. Keep in mind that you might miss him/her more than usual because sociopaths are so good at manipulation that you would end up more affected than in a relationship with someone else. A sociopath can elicit much stronger feelings in you than would happen with a normal person. You might end up being much more infatuated with the sociopath than you would have anyone else who was otherwise equally attractive to you (in looks and in the persona they presented to you). Such that you feel you love this person more than you have loved anyone else even when your logical mind says this should not be the case , that others you have been in relationships with before have treated you much better and deserved your love more. The sociopath is good at manipulating, so you are feeling these feelings as a result of the sociopath's skills. However and remember this: feelings are not reality, they are just feelings, sometimes they correlate with reality sometimes they don't, and a good manipulator can create feelings in you that are unrelated to reality. What's more important about feelings is that they come and go, and although you can't choose which ones come, you can choose to a small extent which ones you hold on to more strongly. This feeling you have now will pass, eventually. It's tough and you can't believe it now, because you've probably gotten over others much more easily than this one, but this one is different, not in a good way, and that's why you got out of the relationship. The manipulator was so good that he/she has now left you feeling that you can't get over it, but that is just one of the manipulator's tricks. When you think about him/her, change the subject in your mind - think about something else quickly, keep doing this and one day it will be over. I really hope this works because I am going to try it for myself. I too I am trying to get over a sociopath and even though I spotted this personality issue very quickly, it wasn't quickly enough for me to come out unscathed. Good luck, you made it out of the relationship and that's the real victory. ANSWER: Sociopaths know how to play innocent and from my experience, they target naive and somewhat inexperienced individuals who will succumb easily to their tactics. They get a thrill out of the sense of power and mastery over the person they are with at the moment. Their love is generally need-based. They will date you when they feel loneliness or some other type of need and will keep you around as long as you don't demand any sort of genuine intimacy that comes from truthful communication that may arise from a relational fight. Once you are no longer needed, they immediately turn their attention to a pool of women they already had in mind prior to meeting you. In fact, you were a part of that pool and you are actually no more special than the woman that they have dated before and after. They used the same tactics before you and will continue to do so afterwards, because they get a high from the feeling of respect from the adoration that they receive from their victim. Don't even feel bad for the sociopaths because of the sob stories that they tell you. When a normal person undergoes a traumatic past, they don't go around talking about it to everyone they know. They only talk about it to a trusted few. Sociopaths announce it to their victims to gain sympathy and when it comes time that you need some sympathy from him, you will never get it. If you were lying on the ground helpless, he would hop over you and run to save his own life. He will not be that guy who helps someone in need unless others are watching or unless there is some kind of visible reward. He believes that as long as he has demonstrated some sort of good works by helping a just cause, his heart is exempt. He feels in this business transaction of having given money to the poor or gone on a volunteer trip that he has fulfilled his karmic transaction. He does not see the importance of personal beliefs, because they are of no use. You can't show off integrity, so what's the point in having it? Purely driven by selfish needs, this is not someone you can ever rely on to be there for you when you fall. In fact, he is a fearful coward. Those who feel love are able to face fears of all sorts on behalf of their lover. Love brings a man to take a bullet for his beloved. That kind of a strength a sociopath can never have. If there is trouble that affects him personally, you can be sure he'll be skipping like a calf to save himself and as long as no one saw it, it's fine. Plus, he will always have an excuse and it will be an external factor that's at fault. The next worse thing that can happen to losing this person you have loved is to having him. (MORE)
Why do you feel as if you are in a bad movie and are the only one who can see the entire narcissistic sociopathic behavior pattern?
Because you've made excuses for a while..... you've allowed yourself to be treated in ways you knew weren't right.... for too long. So.... that's why it looks like a bad movie. It's a pretty dramatic story line. I couldn't write fiction as strange as my life turned out to be. As for your apparent cl…ear vision into you N's obvious disordered behavior? Well.... lets face it. You're looking. Other's aren't. They don't want to know and you're probably the one running around behaving a bit disordered and emotionally unbalanced, lol. Slow down. Take a step back. View the situation with some distance.... like you're very high up, looking down at yourself and your N. What do you see? What would be logical actions and where do you want to be? What advice would you give to someone in your situation. ME? My advice.... is to run. Go. FAST. NOW! Tremusan Answer Again ... labeling a person a narcissist is simply arm-chair psychology and unless a professional has labeled this person then they may not be a narcissist at all, but could be depressed, abusive, or be a perfectionist, etc. The only thing that matters is the fact this person doesn't treat you well and whether this person is a narcissist or just a creep they hide their true selves well and others generally never see this side of them. It doesn't matter what other people see, you see it, so run! answer Well the last answer only exacerbates the victim's feelings of isolation. THIS is Narcissism FAQ. There is a disclaimer to deal with the issue of professional diagnoses. People come here to cuss and discuss who they believe to be a Narcissist. People who have been victimized. They want to know how to deal with the Narcissist in their life. Some FAQ questions are vague and have nothing specific to do with Narcissism. But this is not one of them. I don't see anything in this question that asks "Am I dealing with a Narcissist." The poster is asking for help and advice dealing with these bad feelings which come from being ABUSED. There is NOTHING like being victimized by an N. Other disorders and conditions pale in comparison. Trouble is diagnoses or not, you don't really realize you are dealing with an N until you have been victimized by one. And it can happen more than once. Learn to recognize the signs and be careful. Whether or not he is a true N is beside the point. Somebody who mistreats you and display the behavior of an N should be avoided. If you have mislabeled him, it's no crime. After all, he earned it because of his behavior. There is another FAQ section for abusive relationships that doesn't limit discussion to Narcissism. I think one who realizes he or she is dealing with a Narcissist would naturally gravitate to this section. One thing worse than being abused is to be discredited by those from whom you seek advice and assistance. Immediately, your opinions and interpretations are labeled "invalid." I wonder how many people have been victimized who did not "think" the other was an N but were mislead and "thought" they were perfectionist or neurotic, etc... THIS is how the N gets by in life hurting and abusing others -- because there is always someone around giving him too much credit for being humane, which he is not. THERAPISTS are notorious for that. Answer I cannot add to the previous post as she summed it up perfectly. People here need support; they do not need to be invalidated, especially their perceptions and feelings. It's a VERY positive sign when someone can recognize another to be a Narcissist! That means they can heal. They have something to work with that takes blame from the victims, and then the true healing can start! Answer http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Answer_omitted_from_this_space_and_moved_to_the_Discussion_Page . Answer The funny thing is I recall feeling as though I were in the BEST movie of my life for the first three months. I've never experienced anything like it. Then yes, it turned into a nightmare. I don't think there is anyone other than the N's intimates who ever really know and understand the depths of their issues. My N's sisters and mother thought he was "a great guy," even though they knew he had "personality and temperament" challenges. They constantly minimized his behavior (they never knew the full extent of it anyway). Seeing him through their eyes was one of the primary ways I fell in love with him -- they were very rosy glasses. He knew this would happen which is why he ONLY had me spend time with his family. We literally NEVER spent time with his friends (and their wives). This should have been a much bigger red flag than I thought in the beginning. Yet, he spent time with my friends. It was only once I began to be more honest about what was happening "behind closed doors" with one of his sisters, that she finally said, "What would you advise a friend to do in this situation?" That was the only way she could suggest getting out without betraying her brother. Still, I don't think she every really knew or understood the depths of the nightmare I was experiencing. --- answer --- Thank you very much whoever replied with "People here need support; they do not need to be invalidated, especially their perceptions and feelings." Let me tell you there is nothing worse than dealing with an N especially if you are competely blind to the fact he COULD be an N. or if some "expert" keeps telling you "nothing is wrong, he isn't an N, he hasn't been diagnosed!" It attitudes like this that cause a victim to feel they are in a bad movie and are the only ones. Please have some sympathy and support for those of us victimized by a narcissist. (MORE)
yes. by all means acts just as crazy and you will get rid of them. they need admiration. do the opposite and belittle them till they can not stand it. just have back up in case they try to physically attack. then your problems are over. they will be gone.
Sociopaths -- psychopaths; people with ASPD (Antisocial Personality Disorder) -- actually feel very little. The sociopath is essentially a hollow shell. Yet, according to Robert Hare, an expert on psychopathy, they are "not fragile" -- their character is "set in stone" for life. But there are… no human beings without some vulnerability. I'm not the only one pointing this out. Two other sociopaths here have written of it. (See below, after the end of my essay answer.) Even after being told one is a psychopath or sociopath , it often seems meaningless to the one being diagnosed. Sociopaths rarely feel true happiness. If they do, it is usually in the condition that some kind of intervention -- such as one of the small number of medications made for other conditions that may also help somewhat with theirs -- has taken place, and it will be fleeting. For all their frantic racing around, they are really very dead inside , and this is tragic beyond description. Imagine spending your entire life trying to get your brain to wake up! And failing. Thousands of times. There are stories of people diagnosed as sociopaths who did improve to some degree, with the most ceaseless and diligent help. But since the vast majority of this huge body of people (there are more than three hundred million sociopaths on Earth ) cannot get that kind of attention, they turn to abusing those they envy, and often to crime. It is certainly vengeance: "If I can't have any of this, why should you?" This is the real reason sociopaths lash out at strong and kind people. No matter what they say, they know that inside, they are always empty and damaged beyond repair. Only in neuroscience is there hope for these incomplete people. The key lies in awakening the brain, which is risky because sociopaths are much more prone to seizures than the rest of the population, and that -- an uncontrolled blast of electrical discharge spreading through the brain and causing violent convulsions -- is likely to be the first response from brain pathways that, after years or even decades of silence, are suddenly flooded with impulses. But if the devices of neurosurgeons can be tweaked to avoid this shock, and all else related to this idea is workable, it's feasible that small electronic devices planted in the brain (these already exist, but are not yet being used for mental illness) could open up a closed connection. That leaves us with the problem of whether a lifetime of scattered information can ever be set into order. Probably the best that could be hoped for would be a kind of retraining -- like what is now done with stroke survivors and head injury patients -- that would be both intensive and compensatory. One of the things that would be necessary would be to try to socialize the person whose congenital birth defect made such a thing completely impossible before. Whatever intervention is used, be it drugs or computer chips or what have you, it would probably -- I'd say certainly -- be excruciating for the patient at first. With no knowledge of how to cope with the emotions the rest of the world has been dealing with all their lives, the recovering sociopath would be rendered as vulnerable as a baby. Which makes sense, because some of the most basic aspects of the human mind would be developing from the primordial stasis in which they had remained since birth! A person thus treated would never be fully normal, but the human brain is amazing in the way it adapts and continues to develop all through life. And given the utterly joyless and meaningless existence a sociopath leads, any improvement is better than none. Robert Hare agrees with that latter statement. The matter of missing neurotransmitters in a sociopath is, of course, another problem. Would "waking up" the cerebral cortex eventually stimulate production of these? Or would they have to be synthesized ? Only time will tell. Indeed, for years I didn't really get it . But as one clinic after another rejected me, often with venom and even threats, I began to realize I'd better see what there was about the diagnosis I'd been given that could possibly carry such a terrible stigma. So, I had no real clue what I was as an individual, until the diagnostician emphatically and angrily told me what I was. And he said that one of my most insidious actions was to attempt to make contact with and even become friends with other, unsuspecting people . I tried to tell him I actually wanted to help people and that I simply had a normal need to make friends, but he said he wasn't buying it. Not from the likes of me. Yet, even though warmth almost never touches my frozen core, I still seek it... Another psychopath (sociopath) wrote this on another question: Sociopaths, though born that way, are people too. To avoid an entire group of people is absurd. That's like saying, "Since these people have dark skin, everyone should completely avert themselves from them." I am a moderate sociopath, and though part of me doesn't want to change, another does. Many times it is really entertaining to see how stupid people can be, especially when they're so gullible as to believe every word that mellifluously flows from my lips. Yes, I am parasitic, but even so, there are some people I would like to stop hurting. I can't find any websites that can provide a way to help my sociopathy. Maybe people like you should stop your self-victimisation and start trying to actually help people like me! I knew I was a sociopath before the age of ten but have only recently had it officially diagnosed. I am eighteen years old now, and I have been lying and destroying others' sanity for a long time. So, please post some helpful tidbits that might help sociopaths resist the sweet urges we get when we encounter weak human beings. When you cut us, do we not bleed? When you kill us, do we not die? Do you honestly think that you're being lied to and manipulated when we sincerely ask for help. Listen to yourselves! This is the internet; ergo, you're safe from our fortified mental grasp. (Comment: Many of the assertions made by the main answer have no basis in medical or psychological fact. Far from being hollow shells, sociopaths are subject to almost the full spectrum of human emotions, albeit in a stunted or arrested-development fashion. After I was diagnosed, I was directed to various papers on the subject, which I would advise you to read. Ones that may be particularly of concern are in reference to diagnosal reaction.) The essay that follows was written in another answer by another self-admitted sociopath, who actually might not be a sociopath. Still another person added the brief comment to that effect after her tragic essay. . umm... i kindof am one ... just so y'all know, it's not so much fun being one either. i read that sentence up there, "Incapable of real human attachment to another." i don't even know what that is, i see it, i approximate it... it's like being outside a door looking through a dirty window and watching re-runs of people I've seen in love or with children or with friends, and scratching, sometimes banging at the glass to get in and... nothing. I'm fond of people in every sense of the word, their little quirks and habits, the way they see life, except if they went away it wouldn't bother me much other than finding someone else to be fond of. i don't have friends, i only date military men because they're ok with only having a girlfriend for a couple months and i tell them in advance i won't wait for them... i don't know what else to do to limit the damage i inflict on others just as a result of them knowing me, short of moving to the mountains... but i still move between 2-5 times a year :( it's kindof hard walking around knowing I'll never have what i see making other people so happy and running when i can tell someone is getting close just because i don't want to hurt them more later down the road... i'd like it alot to settle down, i WANT to be able to feel more with people, but it's hard to miss what you never had. i want what i THINK it would feel like... it'd be easy to give in and let someone stay because I'm so lonely... but hey, I've written enough, just know i try to be a responsible little sociopath, i won't ever get married or have kids, i practice safe sex, i won't stay in one city for long... everything you all take for granted i will never let myself have just because i WANT to take it for granted. being like this won't go away so hopefully i can limit the amount of hate thrown my way by limiting my interaction with people, i don't know what else to do. and you all might not belive this, but i am sorry, hopefully i can speak for the other people who have damaged your lives. Comment: The above testimony is clearly not indicative of a sociopath because they seem to make efforts to keep from harming others, even if it doesn't benefit themselves. (MORE)
Answer . People suffering from this condition are not void of all feeling. In the worst cases, they have little or no sense of guilt or regret over things that they've done.
Answer . That depends on how you want to do things - or do your parents have a written/verbal request of their own had this had happened? There are a variety of options - if you want them to be able to stay at home as llong as they can they can have home healthcare workers come in and take car…e of them & there home there are many community care companies out there such as Home Instead Senior Care, Comcare, etc. Or there is always the option of a retirement/nursing home. However, think of things in a way such as how would you want to be treated and what would you want people to do with you at that time in your life. They can live at home with homecare then the idea of a nursing home after that. But always remember there is family as well that can take turns helping because you have to remember as well how did you get here and where you are in your life - just because your an adult now maybe they need you as you needed them.

Sympathy.. Also Empathy which is where you can relate to someone elses problems or situation.
Sociopaths do not have the emotions that would lead to a feeling of safety. They tend to either feel in control or out of control, and react to situations on that basis and with a total disregard for the preferences of others unless they can gain from them. A sociopath may say all sorts of things… and claim all sorts of feelings for another in order to get his/her way, but the proof is in the doing -- consistently -- not the saying. A true sociopath cannot be cured, and will not change. If you are involved with one, take steps to get out of the relationship. Understand that there will be a lot of promises, and perhaps some superficial "caring," (the same things that attracted you to start with) but that over the long haul the duck will continue to waddle and quack.

Does a narcissist ever feel guilty to the point of giving expensive guilt presents in a relationship?
A narcissist may give expensive gifts, but only as a means of psychological manipulation, not out of guilt. A true narcissist thinks only of him or herself, and therefore is incapable of feeling guilt.

This will depends on what kind of mistakes or lying you did. But let me make is simple, if we are feeling guilty, our heart will beat a little faster.

Human beings feel sadness, hurtful guilt, and painful feelings. When human beings get their feelings hurt or they don't get their way they get sad and upset or don't feel happiness. Written By: Helpful_hinamoriAmu One day i will tell you my real name.
This is clearly a question with some powerful meaning for you. However, we do not have enough information to answer it. We suggest that you speak with a counselor or clergy about it, so that it can be explored in depth.
Sometimes people just feel glum and there's no big deal about that - but since you say "always," I think it's likely more than that. You could have depression - has this been going on for a while (a few months, for instance)? Do you feel like you're not enjoying things you used to like to do (like h…ang out with your friends)? Do you have any problems sleeping (not being able to sleep, or sleeping too much)? Have you noticed any changes in your appetite? All of these are signs of depression. Another would be if your sadness - or even a sudden lack of interest in things and desire to engage in activities you used to like, it doesn't have to be just sadness - is distracting you often, and it's hard to ignore or shrug it off: if it's debilitating your ability to function, and you can't snap yourself out of it, you need help. Talk to your doctor - they could prescribe you with medication if they think it's appropriate for your case (and if you agree, obviously), or refer you to a good therapist, who can help you deal with your feelings either with or without medication. You might not even need therapy over the long term - it depends on how bad your issues are, and if you have chronic, clinical depression. I hope you take my advice, and talk to your doctor. :) Depression can be absolutely heartbreaking, but there is help out there to try to alleviate your suffering. (MORE)

I have always considered myself to be a sociopath due to a blatant lack of understanding or care for what society classifies as "good and evil," about other people, or about life in general.
I feel like the whole world hates me and I cry and cry and cry. :( but its ok, you'll get over it eventually!
Act like you're having a good time and if anyone ask just tell them that you are having a good time and then after your party after everyone leaves tell the person who through the party how you really feel. Just don't say it to where they would feel bad... Make them want to throw you another one, an…d tell them to make it better than the first one... (MORE)
jump 17x whisper "faithymaithy" into a pillow pantomine a hobo think bout that girl/guy you like for 5 sec now pretend you have a wedgie
Their response shows itself as jealousy, but the anger, from my experience with living one for 20 years, is about control. They need complete control of their environment , and everyone and everything in it. So control is the underlying root of what appears to be jealousy.
For every up there is a down. It's like if it was sunny weather everyday, we would not appreciate the good weather. We get sad so when we are happy it's amazing :)
Abuse shouldn't happen but it happens. Most people tell themselves that the person will change, but they rarely do. My advice is to stay away from the abuser. They don't deserve you if they abuse you. Plus the person may get more violent and seriously hurt you or worse. ACW
i think it is bad not even caring maybe nobody you know lived there but think about all the other people and their families maybe your friend is from japan just think about all the hungry people who die because all their food is gone and have no money to buy more.
It is hard to truly know because sociopaths are almost never forthcoming with their true feeling. They can either show no emotion or mimic the emotion they think they need to display to keep up false image.At the end of the day,however, they are human and do feel some sort of loss but it is shortliv…ed. They compensate for their loss by quickly trying to replace that which they lost in any mode which suit their desires. So, the answer is yes but to a lesser degree. (MORE)
Don't feel like you did something wrong, just simply do every thing you can to make them happy!
Yes, the impression that a sociopath or psychopath has absolutely no feelings is false. However their range of emotions are VERY limited, they may feel nothing for their dying friend/father/grandma/uncle/cousin/girlfriend/boyfriend but will feel their world come apart when their mother dies. A socio…path cannot feel sadness for most people because the most they will ever be is little blemishes on the earth. (MORE)
Yes, guys do feel bad sometimes. Mature guys do have a conscience and care about others' feelings. Guys' minds work differently than girls' minds, so sometimes they have no idea of the pain they cause.
Human nature! Something to do with conscience, going against things that you were taught at a young age. (my guess)
Jason Voorhees is a fictional killer from the Friday the 13th franchise. Jason, more often than not, never feels bad about killing people. This is probably due to the fact that he's more of an evil demon that never dies more than he is human.
The Pride would be hurt?,,,,,maybe?. Possibly then a ego knee jerk recreation for themselves to avoid the reality check of the glib grandiose sense of self. Possibly an escalation of the same sociopath state as a bolstered coping mechanism? This could be in the form of lies to themselves, delusion, …manipulation of others for self satisfaction or gain,,randomly too,,,,all this just to feel whole and elevated again? If You the sociopath had any real remorse or took responsibility for the damage that you indeed do to others that are free to give,,,lets say Love here?, along with the possibility of the abused partner reacting to that abuse,,,in the form of an affair Emotional and or probably Physical, I feel it would be best to leave well enough alone and go find yourself a Codependent Control freak. That type of person may balance you out for a time if they were stronger than you at that game,,,,,though,,,,I pity the violence. Please dont take your angst out on innocent people or things in your search to redefine yourself. Self abuse is not a good option either,,,maybe enjoyable for a time?,,though I know you'd dig the pain,,,there is a downside to that too, which means you must again self perpetuate your cycle. I pity you, Your nature is indeed a whirlwind,,,sucking things up and throwing them away. Try Loving what you really have if you can,,,look for this. If your nature is singular,,,,its safer for you to fly solo forever. (MORE)
Yes, it is true that some are bullies because they feel bad about themselves. It is not all bullies since some have unwarranted positive feelings about themselves. Both self-hate and excessive pride can be causes. Anyway, some bullies are bullied or abused themselves. Some want attention but don't k…now of any worthwhile means to get it, so if they can't gain fame, then they figure they will settle for infamy. Some just want to be respected, but since they can't figure out how to get respect, they will settle for fear. (MORE)
Because others around him were allowed home to be with family atholiday time. He however was forced to stay at boarding school.
they don't have much. that's why their like that. take that away. they regret letting that go and feel sad. last but not least guilt for not holding what was close to them closer. in their eyes the world is the cause and your just trying to protect it.
Yes, you can control the guilt you feel for lust. First you mustrecognize the act of being lustful and examine the reasons why.Then you need to accept the situation for what it is and thisshould help you rationalize things.
Feelings can often be complicated. Having feelings for anotherperson isn't necessarily bad, however, acting on those feelingswhile still with your boyfriend would be considered wrong.
Not ones built with the "automated arithmetic calculator" typearchitectures used today. They are deterministic and "free will"(whatever it really is) is very nondeterministic. Simply throwingin randomness won't help either.
