A tumblr follower sent me this note:
There is a strange but empowering freedom to knowing that almost every single person you have ever met, and almost every single person you will ever meet, would fear and despise you and wish for your death if they actually knew the truth about you. You can draw strength from it, set yourself above others.
And the same follower (I presume) sent me this follow up note:
It’s worth noting that, according to the (admittedly rather dubious and hypocritical) standards of society, you and others like you already *are* the bad guys, whether or not you’ve actually done anything bad.
They make a good point, though I do not wish to look too deeply into the exact wording that they use. Many in times of strife use their plight as a means to reach farther and dig deeper for the energy required to make their situation better. I don’t believe the psychopath loses sleep over her position in society, however. Her narcissism already has her believing that she is above others, however the status of being the bad guy can lead to an even more potent ego-boost. When you are better than everyone and feared, what more is there to attain?
