Sometimes, evil does not translate into violence or murder. Sometimes, evil can be difficult to detect. It can be masked by charm and flattery, and it is often perpetuated by pathological lying, projection, and various other mind games. No matter how hidden it may be, evil always devastatesóand isolatesóany normal person who is touched by it.
When I first joined the PsychopathFree community in March of 2013, my only hope was that the members here would be nice to me. Really, that was my only hope! WellÖnot only were they kind, they exceeded my expectations in countless ways! Because of this forum, I have established beautiful friendships with other survivors, something I never imagined would happen. They shared their inner selves with me and with others, and as I read story after story on PF, I found that my head began to clear. My new friends also helped me find the courage within to write about my own feelings, ideas, overwhelming pain, and reassuring breakthroughs. And as I shared the deepest parts of myself
along the way, I gradually discovered that light and hope surrounded me once again.
