loving a sociopath?
Well, it's starting to look like a friend of mine (and sister of my best friend) is a sociopath: She has a long history of manipulating people to get her way, lies about so much that none of us ever get the same account of her day, and doesn't seem to care about how anyone else feels about anything. She just does what she wants. It's gotten to the point where she's destroyed her marriage, lies about what she does every night, and may or may not be taking drugs. Her character has been getting progressively more shady over the last several months. Tonight I found out that she told her parents she was with me when she definitely was not.
I've been skimming through websites about how to deal with sociopaths. I know that they're largely incurable by anything that doctors have found. Everything I've read just says "stay away!" or "break ties and warn others!" I don't want to do that with her. I don't believe that God wants me to do that to her.
What do Christian counselors suggest for dealing with sociopaths?
"I'm thinking of starting my own talk radio show. I'll spout simplistic opinions for hours on end, ridicule anyone who disagrees with me, and generally foster divisiveness, cynicism, and a lower level of public dialog! Imagine getting PAID to act like a six-year-old!"
