Ye Gods HD, this was painful to read. I've heard some of those before And I didn't know how to translate back then, I had to learn it the hard way.....

Good post, hope others out there who've been (or are) with these kinds of subhumans will take heed and be aware.....

This is from my Psychologist, Al Bernstein. His website can be found here: http://www.albernstein.com/index.htm

He has written some really excellent books!

quote:
EMOTIONAL VAMPIRES

This is my newest book, published in September of 2000.

Not just annoying people, but darkly seductive. Emotional Vampires draw you in with charm, beauty, talent, and pulse pounding excitement. Then they drain you not of blood but of every last drop of emotional energy.
You know them Sexy, but unreliable lovers, drama queens who use emotions like Afghan Rebels use Kalishnikovs, jealous spouses, demanding parents, manipulative coworkers, and bosses with gigantic egos, who are so small everywhere else.
Its almost supernatural how quickly Emotional Vampires can get you to trust them, then, just as quickly, get under your skin and drain you dry. Its downright scary how quickly they can trick you into letting them come back and do it again.

Psychologists would diagnose Emotional Vampires with Personality Disorders, those strange mental illnesses drive other people crazy. To protect yourself from children of the night, you must understand what personality disorders are, and how they operate.
With checklists, examples, and detailed, step-by-step instructions, Dr. Albert J. Bernstein, Psychologist and best-selling author of Dinosaur Brains, tells you all you need to know to save yourself from a tremendous pain in the neck.

I'm painfully facing some truths.

Gee, I wonder why a lot of people I have loved before would come back for more in a heartbeat.. ( certainly not some!!! But they exist)

I have these tendancies outlined. ( admittedly, I haven't checked out the links, I am sort of scared to..)
But at least in admitting, and facing, I can realize where things come from... Maybe change some, or in the act of understanding, heal a bit...

quote:
You deserve far, far better. You're the kindest most warm person I have ever met and I know that you'd do anything for me.
TRANSLATION: I should have employed more subtle tactics. You were right up at the top in terms of quality NS, you gave in so easily.

I really hope you find someone who deserves your love. That person was never going to be me.
TRANSLATION: I'm sort of realizing that maybe, just maybe, you're cutting off my N-supply. Here, let me plant these poisonous words in your head, just in case I try to tap your source later on when I'm in a dry spell.

I want to say I'm sorry for all the hurt I've caused.
TRANSLATION: Saying sorry is easy, see? I can do it too! I don't want to damage my supply source too much, I went overboard this time. Keep those illusions alive baby so the doors will open for me and I can feed off of you even more. You know, that's the game I play. I got some great NS from you, You can't imagine how hard the withdrawal symptoms are.


Now, I didn't mean it in such a nasty sounding way though,, I honestly felt that.
ick.
I don't like seeing my nasty ego.
It's not pretty.

Emotional Vampires=Actors, Politicians and Artists.

Although I am an artist I am very humble without visions of grandeur, it's not about me, its' about society. Any artist who is discrimatory is not an artist, he's a wannabe. Real artists have NO ego.

Watch out for those narcisstic wannabees!

I'm totally freaked out by all of that.

#1: because I am OBVIOUSLY one of these people

#2: Because everyone I know has some EV traits. Everyone! You'd have to be a perfect person not to have any of these things going on.

#3: I'm pretty sure not all EV's are doing it maliciously. I was/am unaware when I am doing it.

#4: Maybe it just went over my head and I'm missing something key here.

In addition I recommend a few good self assertion books

such as Doormat to Dreamgirl!
"A ***** always subtly lets him/her know she/he is driving that train"

Great stuff, I bring it too work and read it out loud:>
