A psychopathic ex threatens to cause a single mom to lose her job.
Everyone who speaks out about their experiences with psycho/sociopaths or spreads factual information about the “cluster B” personality disorders is helping others to see themselves, their relationships, their whole lives more realistically. A realistic perspective empowers us to make the best decisions for ourselves, and also, we feel stronger when we recognize that we are not alone, that what we are going through, or have survived, is not so unusual and extreme that no one will believe us if we told them about it. It helps to learn that the abuse and the dirty tricks we have been subjected to actually are standard psychopathic behaviors. It allows us to shed any guilt we may have from being mistreated or doubts about our own sanity. It gives us the confidence to redefine and set limits on unacceptable behavior. When we recognize the patterns, we also know better what to expect so that we may prepare accordingly. We can direct our energy to where it is effective instead of wasting it on an unrealistic notion; something that will never happen, no matter how hard we try.
And then there’s the bigger picture. Just think; if everyone had awareness and understanding of psychopathy, you wouldn’t have to worry about your ex causing you to lose your job. All psychopaths lie. All psychopaths do hurtful, harmful things “without any reason.” It doesn’t always “take two to tango.” The world needs to know these things. We need to tell our stories, expose the evil-doers, and gain some clout and credibility. The time and opportunity is now with the Internet as a vehicle for all who have suffered. We can make a difference—we already have. Anyone can start a blog or post comments on websites. Let’s keep the ball rolling so the next generation, at least, has the heads-up we had to survive without.
If your ex follows through with his threat, show this discussion thread to your employer! What do you think would happen?

Covert narcissists are skilled at appearing “normal”. They choose a victim they feel they can dominate or manipulate, and they choose opportunities to abuse their victim when there are no witnesses or in a passive-aggressive, underhanded manner so that their secret mean streak isn’t exposed to others. Motivated by self-preservation and self gain, they lack fail-safes, such as empathy or a moral conscience, against selfish behavior that is harmful to others. Denial is a characteristic of the disorder. They can be highly critical of other people’s behavior, but they always feel righteous about their own.

He was just found guilty in a Utah court of murdering his wife. Evidence suggests that he also killed his brother when he was a boy and attempted murder on his mother. Mormon doctor Martin MacNeill is facing prison for life. So, why the proud look, the triumphant grin?
Because he got away with so much for so long.
Michele MacNeill was found unconscious in a bathtub in 2007. Prosecutors claim that her husband left her there to die after giving her a lethal cocktail of prescription drugs.
Red flags suggesting psychopathy can be found in Martin MacNeill’s medical career. He was fired from his job at Bringham Young University in 1999 for undisclosed reasons. Apparently, there had been accusations of rape and multiple complaints about misdiagnosis and unprofessional misconduct.
MacNeill is now awaiting sentencing after being found guilty of both first degree murder and obstruction of justice.
‘I think my dad really got off on seeing what he could get away with,’ daughter Alexis said.

In our understanding of the world around us, we are restricted by the framework of our knowledge and beliefs. Our minds rationalize to avoid cognitive dissonance, or contradicting beliefs, when we try to make sense of other people’s behavior, resulting in perceptions that are unrealistic. The decisions we base on those perceptions will be ineffective or inappropriate at best, while in a worst case scenario; lead to a lifetime of misery or death.
