I understand your pain; I understand how you spend every minute with that person with all those
anxieties that can’t be fixed. Being a teenager, It’s too depressing to be with them in the same house
and not be able to say anything, perhaps they’re wrong. They often negotiate fights with any random
person for no reason when they find any word offensive. So, here I will tell you how to handle your
life if you’re having sociopath parents or parents with some narcissistic personality disorder.
5 Questions To Ask Yourself – Find Out If Your Parent Is An Sociopath
Whether it would be your father or your mother any of them could have this personality disorder. I am
here to share my personal experience with you. These are the symptoms and indications that your
parents might be a sociopath.
● Do they lie quite often to prove themselves right or to look like a hero in front of others?
“My father use to lie about everything for his good, for example- the lies about how he won’t have
any bad habit in front of my friends or relatives to be a good person”. And those lies are
sometimes like you can’t even believe. These people can have a bragging nature and talk
recklessly about how smart they are.
● Are they being Manipulative all the time or for so long?
If your parents are being manipulative all the time then it’s a sign of danger. They are loud, they
will stop you from doing something and will want you to depend on them, they will raise their
voice to be right or they will emotionally blackmail you to prove themselves right.
”My father’s most common habit is to shout at every possible thing and prove himself right by
raising his voice. He can’t stand it that he’s wrong and can never admit for his mistakes.”
● Do they act impulsively about every little thing or harm you or themselves or break stuf down?
I’ll explain this by giving you an example of what happens with me; my father is a very impulsive
man, he never harms any of us in my family but his actions always reflect the same, he can’t
control what he is doing when he’s angry. So, he breaks stuff or harms himself quite often. The
reason for their impulsiveness could be anything, for example-“once I asked my father to let me
play a game in his mobile phone that he was playing, I was a kid that time and he refused to give
his phone, then I asked again stubbornly and the next thing he did was impulsively throwing his
phone away. I can’t tell how many times I’ve experienced these types of situations and am still
going through them. He never realizes his mistakes. All he does is to blame someone else for the
● Do they lack empathy or never understand your emotional and mental pain?
They tend to be selfish most of the time, they want everyone to understand them and sympathize
with them but they never understand someone else’s problems or pain someone’s going through.
They even use their illness as a weapon to gain sympathy. They will ask you to settle yourself
according to them because they’re mentally ill. It becomes exhausting to be around them.
● Are they lacking restraint and talk negatively or negotiate fights all the time?
Sociopaths talk negatively and use bad words to hurt you. They often intimidate that they will
commit suicide or threat to harm themselves. Sometimes they harm themselves to prove you
wrong. Trust me these kinds of situations are terrible to face. Let me tell you a live example of
mine “one day my parents were arguing on some stuf and suddenly my father hit himself on this
head by glass stand, as I said because he can’t lose a fight”
Now, the question arises How to Handle These Toxic Situations and what to do with them. There is
your sibling, your mother or father who’s been suffering with you and it’s miserable to see them
hurting for no reason. So, I’ll be sharing what I have been doing for the last 18 years.
Most Effective Ways To Deal With Your Sociopath Parents
1. Ignore arguing with them as much as possible. Because putting on a discussion with them is a
complete waste and not worth your time. I know it’s annoying to say “yes” to their every
question but for peace, that is important.
2. Never try to correct them in public because that comes as a backfire to you, that too in public.
These people don’t realise their audacity, they will insult you on the spot and can also create a
3. Try to fill up forms of colleges and universities far from your residence so that you can study
in peace because that will bring you to hostel life!! Trust me, this will surely benefit you
because I know how much haunted your own house is to you.
4. Stay calm and relax. You can’t change anything, you can’t change them so you need to be
calm and take care of your mental health. Don’t pay attention to what they say, just ignore
them and keep moving ahead. You have a whole life waiting for you!
5. And at last, I will advise you to please take care of yourself. Your mental health is important
and “You” are important. Talk to your favourite person and serve chores that bring you
happiness. Do mediation and exercise daily for your harmony and peace.
Don’t worry it’s just a bad phase that too will pass. You’re strong, you’re enough and you’ve got this!!
Go for it and be happy. So this was all on How to Deal with sociopath parents.
