Asked in Sociopathy (Psychopathy)
Can a sociopath truly not hurt others around them or love anyone even themselves or is there any hope at all?
Clinically defined - a sociopath won't (not can't) do anything positive for those around him/her. As far as "is there hope".... don't count on it. You have no control. If they give you signals that they WANT to change, that they are taking the initiative and don't want to be sociopathic any longer, do what you can to help. But don't bank on it..... None! Educate yourself about them and run like hell.
