Did you ever turn into a cnut/bo11ocks/asshole to someone who was a cnut/bo11ocks/asshole to you?
I wouldn't normally but I was on the receiving end of lies and empty promises from someone. I was very patient with him until I just absolutely snapped at him one day when he came to me for a ride. He made me feel so sh1te. His lies were insulting to say the least.
AH, not so long ago pointed out that he was a physopath and it does appear to be the case. There was no empathy, no consideration, no corrective action. Was just met with more lies to cover his own ass.
It is my opinion that lying is a form of emotional abuse, especially when it's done under the nature that I received them. It's insulting, demeaning and eradicates self esteem in that a person is not worthy of the truth. Only lies. It's down right rotten.
I eventually came down on the man like a ton of bricks and I was mean, mean, mean.
Strange thing is that I am riddled with so much guilt and sorrow.
