Something I’ve learned about stalkers is they possess a pronounced sense of entitlement and innate skill of explaining away behavior as rationally justified. I’ve had four stalkers force themselves into my life, imposing upon me a close relationship I didn’t ask for. My current stalker doesn’t deviate from unwanted empiricism.
So what personality disorder, or thought disorder, or mood disorder, or dissociative disorder, or whatever combination thereof lends itself to the behavior and motivation of a stalker?
With this stalker, for whom I’m told is “harmless”, perhaps this time I’ll have a second person perspective on the threatening environment created. Do I feel anxiety? Do I feel uncertain? Do I feel hyperawareness? Perpetually.
This time, I’m documenting behaviors and actions of my stalker… and how it emotionally, psychologically, and physically affects me.
It’s also good information for my future law enforcement training development, as many peers are severely triggered by stalking, leading to a mental health crisis situation. This is brought about by the stalker, quite often the peer’s abuser. And, yes, emotional abuse is the culprit above physical abuse.
Hey, if I’m going to be stalked, why not treat it as an anthropological field study? That’s Steve-Empowernwnt at play. And an opportunity to help others
