"There are people who reach out to others in this world. They show signs of weakness. They put themselves in a place to be frauded, scammed and taken advantage of. I hate to be the voice of reason here, but learn to love yourself, gain some strength, become self aware.
How many women have so desperately longed for love that they ended up marrying a man who abuses them and now they are dead in the grave? Or how about the women who have been conned out of money and living homeless on the street? How about the man who married the woman of his dreams only to end up with some arsenic in his coffee every morning so she could collect on his life insurance?
Now, this can happen to anyone. Even the smartest, most confident and well put together people. After all, sociopaths and psychopaths graduate to those kind of people for the challenge of it. However, on the 80% statistic most of those predators go for the feeble minded, weak-minded, insecure, easy to prey on types.
Sociopaths love to help themselves to people who have a self loathing, weak, depressive, needy, and insecure.
In the mind of a sociopath they almost feel like you deserve it and need it. You think because you can love and you can give and give that everyone else is this way. The sociopath and psychopath count on that.
Open your eyes. Love yourself first, know yourself, and be assertive enough to lay down boundaries. I had to learn this the hard way. I have been harmed, schemed, battered, raped, etc because my desperate need for love. I got wise to it though and I worked on myself.
Nothing wrong with a little vent. However, realize that sociopaths will be reading it, and they will want to come in close and swoop you up. Don't cross the boundaries.
I apologize if this offends anyone. It isn't meant to. I am hoping in writing this some of you will have a reality check and learn to love yourself and to see how you endanger yourself with this kind of behavior."
