    you've seen them? people who are basically self-serving. using their kind as stepping stones to vain glory and cult of personality?


    feeding off the intellectual property of their slaves?


    the spirit is entombed in the flesh for a reason. but the Spirit has the ability to soar to great heights, or drown in great depths.


    come gather together for the great supper of love. sharing our selves in the presence of our enemies. our cup of runneth over with love, with the milk of human kindness to everlasting, eternal, infinite

    I've got one of those in my life right now.

    She's one of the most disgusting people I've ever met...

    They can only feed if we allow it.
    I understand that there may be reasons that we do. Still our choice.

    explain that to a 11 year old that is being mentally, sexually, and physically abused. everyone may have a physical age but their mental/spiritual maturity is not necessarily a one to one; especially if they have never had a good role model, mentor, guardian.


    sometimes love flows only downhill until the melting draws it upwards.


    food for thought

    Interesting you mention that... when I reflect on the 'vampire's' behavior, I do find she seeks out people that could be exploited as 'weak, or seeks to find a person's weakness, so she can 'rebuild them in her image', so to speak.

    I think you've explained the problem. That is why children are still under the care of their parents. Kids need a good two parent family and if possible extended family for support.
    What we can do is encourage healthy families/role models to let children know they have a choice.

    What is the alternate plan? To let the victimization continue?

    the prisons are full of sociopaths and psychopaths. people don't generally choose to be randomly deceived and don't usually know its happening until it's to late.

    everyone wants to be loved; some to the point that they will put themselves at great risk for great rewards but will be victimized. once the vampire has sunk it's fangs into the host it's hard for the host to remove it. the parasites don't want to give up their host that easily.


    deception, and misinformation, are one of their main tools.


    have you ever been caught in a labyrinth of lies and knew how to find your way safely out of it?


    have you ever walked the tightrope way up high? you never know

    You started referring to special cases like kids.
    I agree with your point. I'm happy to consider other/better ways to deal with the exception.
