These are two words you will rarely, if ever hear the sociopath say! Why? Because they’re never wrong! And if you do hear an apology, it’s most likely they are setting you up for something else.
Sociopath’s work by agenda! They are not capable of the normal feelings of love, shame, guilt, empathy, remorse and so on. Therefore, for them to say “I’m sorry” is about as likely as you seeing a Unicorn. The sociopath’s agenda does not include having to say these two words, just like you will never see remorse/shame or guilt. Those character traits go hand in hand. If you have been with a Sociopath for any length of time, you will pick up on these
How many times have you said something to a friend or relative, and just by their expression you knew your words hurt them? A Sociopath picks up on the same facial expressions, however he/she is then getting what they wanted. They want to see us hurt, they want to have total control over our emotions and actions. Remember, they do not feel emotions like we do. And if on the off chance they feel they are about to loose you, their ‘supply’, you may get a half-hearted apology. And once again, we, the victims of these people are just seeking some ‘validation’. We just want to know that when they
continually hurt us, that they will at least say “I’m Sorry” and mean it!
It is important to realize that the expression of emotions, are a form of non-verbal communication. And as we know so well, Sociopath’s are experts at verbal communication. That is how we got sucked into this spinning vortex of crazy in the first place. The Sociopath, was the master at verbal
ambushing communication. And on the few occasions when he knew I had finally had enough of his shit, he would then turn on the expression of emotions, the fake tears. He could cry on the spot and beg me to ‘forgive’ his words. Really???!!! Forgive him??!!!! Ha~I had never met anyone that asked for forgiveness instead of giving an apology! Just another horrible character trait of the Sociopath’s that walk among us!
