@previous anon: actually, reduced affect/emotional capability isn't the defining point of szpd. the defining point is the complete lack of desire for relationships/contentment with isolation. you can be schizoid and have regular emotions (provided you fit 4 or more of the other criteria and they significantly affect your life), it's just not as common. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ personally cant relate to overwhelming emotions in general but it happens, espec w/ comorbidity.

there ya go

when u fake emotion for someone and they don’t even appreciate it like ?? I pretended to not be completely apathetic if u would die right in this moment and this is how u repay me

  • me: why don't i have any friends?
  • me: *prefers own company*
  • me: *lies to get out of social situations*
  • me: *cancels social plans to spend time alone*
  • me: *hates leaving the house*
  • me: *feels anxious when people come over for a visit*
  • me: hmm

Stop demonizing people with low empathy 2k16

Stop assuming that all people with low empathy are assholes who don’t give a damn 2k16

Stop saying that people with low empathy are hurtful to others because of bad intentions 2k16

Stop pretending that people with low empathy don’t have any sense of right and wrong 2k16

Stop equating low empathy with being sadistic 2k16

Having low empathy is not a choice. Empathy is not something you can learn. But that doesn’t mean they are assholes or anything else, or that they want to hurt others.

Well yeah because I get shunned every time I show signs.
