Victims of calculated, strategic, exploitive, devious, and deliberately invisible abuse most often have no place to turn. The cost is great, and the number of victims is greater than most people imagine.
More often than not, almost always, people will not know when they are encountering a predatory personality, one who could easily ruin their life, one who might already be ruining the life of someone they know. More often than not, almost always, people will not know when they are encountering a victim of a predatory personality. All too often, almost always, the perpetrators of calculated, strategic, exploitive, devious, and deliberately invisible abuse approach with a smile and the victims are silenced by fear, having learned the danger of trying to speak, of trying to tell their story, and having experienced the pain and isolation of not being believed by family, friends, and the professionals to whom they are expected to turn. This is real and I’ve seen it.
There is no institutional solution for predatory personalities but there is a human solution for their victims. The human solution begins with an awareness that leads to a recognition that creates safety for a victim to tell his or her story to another human being who will listen.
Predatory personalities, personalities with psychopathic traits, are not rare and are no less a danger to life and health than hidden landmines planted along the streets and sidewalks where we walk. That these personalities are not identified as the public health risk that they are is an omission that leads institutions, organizations, and individuals to proceed as if the health risk and danger of predatory personalities doesn't exist, or exists somewhere, but not in the victim who is asking for help. This lack of education and awareness leaves victims of predatory personalities with no place to turn, and subjected to re-victimization for having tried.
Let's change that.
