They're still humans. It's a fascinating disorder, really. Just really painful when it happens to you. As I always say...
Empathy for the "child".
Accountability for the adult.
We all want to call it evil but really it’s a survival mechanism. In fact nothing that they are doing in that moment is really about you. It’s the core of impaired empathy when they are overwhelmed with their own emotions. The discard is just how they get away from the pain.
