The Fact that the SOCIOPATH can Discard Friends and Allies with little Thought or Emotion, shows us something about how They view the World:
- FRIENDS AND ALLIES ARE NOT TERMS THE SOCIOPATH IDENTIFIES WITH. IN FACT, THEY DON'T MEAN ANYTHING AT ALL. A FRIEND OR AN ALLY, TO THEM, IS JUST A MEANS TO AN END. WHILE OTHERS MAY APPLY THOSE TERMS TO THE SOCIOPATH, WHICH IMPLIES THAT THEY FEEL THE SOCIOPATH CAN BE TRUSTED, CARES ABOUT THEIR WELL BEING, AND WILL STAND WITH THEM IN CASE OF DIFFICULTIES, NOTHING CAN BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.
The SOCIOPATH may actually exhibit some of these characteristics, but it is not from a Sense of Honor or a Moral Duty. The Sociopath may feel that giving the Impression to others that They Follow a Certain of Conduct, will Allow them to EXPLOIT Those who do not realize that the Behavior the Sociopath is Exhibiting is just a Smokescreen to Hide Their Real Intentions and Motivations. Once The Reasons for the Pretense are gone, and the Sociopath realizes that no more can be Obtained by Acting Like a Caring and Supportive Individual, the VICTIM(S) find Themselves Short a "FRIEND" or "SUPPORTER," AND ARE LEFT WONDERING WHAT HAPPENED.
What is Really Unfortunate is that many Times the VICTIM(S), (and I have seen this Time and Time Again), will BLAME SOMETHING THEY MAY HAVE, OR MAY NOT HAVE DONE, AS THE REASON THE SOCIOPATH HAS TURNED AWAY FROM THEM. THEY WILL SEEK AN EXPLANATION FOR SUCH A BETRAYAL IN THEIR OWN ACTIONS, DECISIONS, AND MOTIVATIONS, NEVER REALIZING THAT THE SOCIOPATH NEVER CARED ABOUT THEM, AND NOW THAT THEY NO LONGER SERVE ANY PURPOSE, ARE FORGOTTEN AND IGNORED. SOMETIMES, THEY MAY EVEN ATTACH BLAME TO ANOTHER INDIVIDUAL, AS THE CAUSE FOR THE ABANDONMENT BY THE SOCIOPATH.
It is often a Misguided Refusal to see Things as they are, for it would be an admission that this person who has Left Them, was not what they pretended to be.
