For most of us when we hear the word “psychopath” pictures of criminals committing violent offences will come to mind. Although on average 20 percent of prison inmates also score high on psychopathy, not all psychopaths are necessarily criminals.

Depression can have a very serious impact on your quality of life, but there are many ways of dealing with depression that can make it more manageable and reduce this impact significantly.

While it is always wrong to steal, most people who do so have logical reasons behind their actions. Typically, they want money or objects that they feel they need or that they think will make their lives better in some way. This is true for both habitual “professional” thieves and those who indulge in an occasional spot of shop-lifting.However, there are also people who steal for no obvious reason at all, and who cannot justify their actions on any level, even to themselves.
Love is often seen as something we acquire on a whim – that our romantic desires are out there pre-made, just waiting for us to grab them off the metaphorical shelf. It’s nice, if not a slightly idealised notion. True love isn’t that simple. Of course, it can be spontaneous and fun. It certainly is in the initial stages. But what about when the rose-tinted glasses have come off? How do you react when the quirks you once found endearing become insufferable annoyances?
Depression is not sadness; it is something completely different that’s hard to describe to someone who’s never experienced it before. It’s the absence of emotion.
