Narcissist vs Sociopath Personalities

Recently, I was reading the newspaper and came across Annie's Mailbox.  A reader had questioned about a family member possibly being a Sociopath.  I found the article fascinating, since I was under the belief that my recent ex is a Narcissist.  I decided to do some research to determine which he may be.  



Hopefully this will help others when dealing with a person with similar characteristics.

"Kids—You Can't Beat 'em."

“Kids-You can’t beat ‘em”, was one of the first logos in 1983, when President Reagan proclaimed April to be the first National Child Abuse Prevention Month. I love the dual meaning of this statement. We can’t be physically aggressive with kids. But equally as important, is the message that there is special value in children. Thirty years later, we continue to promote the value of our children and their families, as well as the fact that every member of the community has a responsibility to…

Please to Meet Myself

Raised to believe that a man needed to look after a woman and that, as her mother used to tell her, ‘single women have no status’, Philippa Sklaar felt that any man was better than no man. If a man looked after her, she owed him. So, for financial security and, admittedly, her relationship addiction, Philippa tolerated abuse, became whoever her husband wanted her to be and lost herself along the way. Her book,…

People Who Live In Glass Houses Shouldn't Throw Stones

Needing an outlet for my feelings, I posted the following on my Facebook page immediately after I heard the news:

 I don't care about winning streaks, national titles, or hollow sound bites. That members of the Penn State administration barely raised their hands when faced with eye-witness…

Protect Your Children XXX Material @ Your Local Mall & Eye Level For Your Children

Thoughts on Paterno from a Penn State alum and mom.

I am also a Penn State alum and a mom of three children, two of them young boys.  I share your disgust and I mourn the loss of innocence of all of those victims.  I also mourn the loss of our icon, Joe Paterno.  Paterno was more than a football coach.  For decades, he embodied how to lead with respect, honor and high standards.  Unfortunately, now he must be judged himself by those same high standards.  I agree with the board's decision, but I do not applaud it.  There is nothing here to…
