Taking the Empath to Victory

The predatory lion will watch from the grass at the wildebeest gathered at the edge of the river of the watering hole. He is waiting for his moment to strike, to pick off one of the herd which has foolishly strayed from the protection of the herd. Once that beast has ventured into the range of the waiting lion its fate has been sealed. Much like the empathic individual who has recklessly wandered back into the sphere of influence of the waiting narcissist who is ready to perform a Hoover, the wildebeest is just moments away from being captured and meeting a grisly fate. The narcissist and the hunting lion share several similarities. We are predators, kings of our environments and noble. We have the edge on the lion however. He may be able to sit unnoticed amidst the dried out grassland, his coat blending in with the sun-scorched yellows, ochres and browns, but once he makes his move and breaks cover, his intended target has a chance. It may only be a slim window of opportunity to escape this savage beast but there is an opportunity nevertheless. I am sure the proud feline would welcome being able to stroll right into that pack of waiting wildebeest, mingle with them,move about them and then strike without any of the creatures noticing that one of their number has been taken down. He can wander freely around as he takes his prey and never break cover. That is where we hold the advantage over the lion. We are able to move amongst our prey, unnoticed and even welcomed as we study and observe,choosing our moment to strike again and again and again.

With such a spectacular cloaking ability we are able to choose the choicest environments in order to ensnare an empath, super-empath or co-dependent. Just like the wildebeest that congregate at a watering hole, providing a target-rich environment for the lion, we seek out those places where we know that we will find plenty of empathic individuals and thus our quest for prime, potent fuel meets with victory. Accordingly as an empathic individual you will be well aware of the places where there are many of your kind. Those environments which require those who care, protect and nurture are prime locations for us to infiltrate and gorge on the victims that mill around us. Charities, hospitals, schools, animal rescue shelters, homeless shelters and domestic violence refuges are just some examples of the places where we will worm our way in. We have little difficulty in doing this. As you know, we are masters of mimicry with our unrivalled ability to take on the traits and abilities of others. Although empathy is an alien feeling to us we are easily able to exhibit the ways of the empath. We spend so much time amongst your kind that we know what to say, how to look and what to do so that we pass unchallenged amongst your ranks. Moreover, the thrusting dynamism that we bring, our charismatic leadership and motivational skills are highly prized in such caring places. The hard-hearted captain of industry may see finance, law, accountancy, technology and the like as ‘sexier’ environments in which to prosper but all of the above places I have mentioned where one finds a higher proportion of empathic individuals than usual have their rewards. The executives of charities are well remunerated, the leaders of hospital trusts invariably have flittering CVs and various honours attached to their names. These sectors need thrusting individuals alongside the care givers in order to ensure that the organisation is effective. This suits us perfectly. Our driven natures, our sense of entitlement and grandiose behaviour is just what is required for those top roles. Couple this with our chameleon like ability to feign that we care and that we are empathic means we ease into the charitable and caring sectors with unchallenged ease.

These environments not only provide us with plenty of succulent empaths to feast on but they present us with opportunities for easy wins. We can dazzle and shine, using our ambition to progress where others are more concerned about the delivery of care as opposed to clambering up the career ladder. These organisations need a dynamic hand on the tiller (us) combined with the delivery of caring services (you). The fact that there are empaths on tap for us to hunt down is serendipity indeed. Thus, next time you look around the management at your hospital or you are sat in a meeting with a committee of trustees for your charity there is every chance that one of our kind is sat there, lurking in the grassland, sliding a forked-tongue across those sharp, sharp teeth.

  1. “What is it about the work that I do that makes you think I enjoy hurting people?” -my narc.
    Smh@ at using your charitable job as a cover. I think what gives you guys away, is that a lot of your lines sound like something from a movie… what genuine person would mention their job as a justification for anything.

  2. What a scary thought must be every vigilant at work now 😱
    I agree with all you have written apart from two words you used to describe your kind …. Noble and King! I’m sorry I don’t believe those words belong with your kind. Maybe substitute with dishonourable and Devil.

  3. I think that in all the literature that I have read on narcissism you have made it so clear how those places can be also populated with people faking. In fact it gets very little mentioned. My whole life I was very much involved with charity and animal rescue and I can see now how certain people were there with other intentions.
    But its also very true what you say they are always looking for career or gaining spotlight rather than doing the work.
    I just love it how you write. This last sentece on sliding the tongue over sharp teeth is great. The best ending 😂.

  4. The image is striking, the blue eyed girl with love in her eyes 😍 cue the Who, Behind Blue eyes now.
    I reiterate the quote,” a lion Is most handsome, when looking for food.”
    The empath is ever loving, even after she is caught and left suffering. For deep inside her is undying. The Narcissist attempting to devour her and feed upon her, can still feel hungry following. His desire unquenched. But, the empath will present the food to the beast and as he gladly gorges on her emotions, desires, hopes and dreams and adulation. She will smile upon him. She will not scorn him.
    As his eyes gleam and he licks his lips in anticipation, she will see him. For not who he is, but for who she sees him as. He is not the hunter to her… he is a child, a man, a co worker, a brother, a father, a lover.
    She will embrace him, as he sinks his shap teeth into her flesh.

    The imagery you have weaved here is very intense. You are a most brilliant writer. I could feel the anticipation, the thrill, the torture inside. The building to a capture of prey. If you do not kill her metaphorically speaking, as in destroy her soul, her will and her trust…. will you cage her instead or release her?
    Are you not taking yourself to victory and the empath, down the road of no return?
    Happy hunting

  5. Can you tell why all my posts are being deleted over the last three days, have I said something to offend you. I thought my responses to your blog have been thoughtful and incorporating your ideas and asking questions to gain knowledge.
    I actually take time to read your entries and take time to respond based on what you say.
    I have a great appreciation and admiration for what you say and how you say it. If you tell me what I have done wrong, in your mind, then I can correct it from my side. Thank you for this consideration on this matter.

    1. Hi Karaa, I have been away and have only intermittently accessed the blog when near wifi using my phone. I am home now and able to look at the blog from my PC and it appears all your comment became flagged as spam for some reason. I have un-spammed them and they should all now restore. No idea why that happened but rest assured you did nothing that warranted removal.

      1. Thank you H.G., there seems to be a lot of spam related issues occurring of late on WordPress. Thank you for letting me know and posting this comment as well. I kept posting regardless, in case a glitch on my end of things.

  6. Truth. Plain and simple truth. Intellectually the benefits for the organization are easily recognized.

    Both kinds are indeed needed for such places to function and prosper, despite the stated side effects, beneficial and otherwise to the personal lives and wellbeing if true connection occurs between both kinds.

    As always, so eloquently put, H G.

  7. HG, Have you ever considered that narcissist are quite possibly the ones who are being played the most? I don’t know exactly where you stand so far as your perspective on God and faith. However, it seems reasonable to me that narcissists are simply the whore and Satan is the pimp. If that is the case, wouldn’t it be awful to come to the end of this life only to realize that although you credited yourself the master player, you were in actuality being masterfully played? If every act that gives you power contradicts love, life, health, I’m not sure how you could see it any other way. Just a word to the wise. I’d love to hear your thoughts if you care to share them.

    1. Hello Hannah, excuse the delay in replying, I have been away. Yes, such a consideration that I have been played is one that would generate concern if it were true. I am both pimp and whore. I make the decisions which affect my progress and achievements, thus I have control, and I also whore my love in return for fuel so that I get what I require. Whore is used so often in a derogatory fashion but if we all examined ourselves we will find that we all have a price as A Man For All Seasons demonstrated. I see nothing wrong in such behaviour.

      1. HG, Agree on the definition but I do not care for how the word WHORE sounds. I have said I am sensitive to sounds in other posts. I am also very sensitive to scents and smells. >

      2. Yes it has a brutish sound to it. How about prossy, pro, courtesan, harlot, strumpet, slut, trollop, wanton, ho, brass, puta, grande horizontale, tramp, hooker, cocotte, round heel, moll or tom? Prefer any of those?
