This is why I only want casual friendships from now on because I see very clear, even if others fool themselves --- after their fears become repressed once again --- and think they want to be in an intimate relationship -- I know better -- once people’s repressed fears are triggered, they rather destroy you or kill you than face and feel their fears within the context of own childhood.
As we witnessed in the community where you used to live and I worked for nine and a half years.
My book triggered their repressed fears of the child they once were and they rather see me dead, in jail or mental hospital than face and feel their own fears within the context of their own childhoods.
How ironic that my relationship with my ex, lasted 10 years and my working relationship with this community also lasted almost 10 years! Once my ex knew that had him figured out and could not fool me anymore, he had no use for me anymore and dropped me like a hot potato. The sociopaths at the community once they read my book, they too figured it out that I see them clear, and they too had no use for me anymore and like my ex, they want me out! Once sociopaths know you have them figured out, they don't want you around anymore. They want people around they can fool and will never challenge them. In this world where most are selling pretty seductive well-articulated lies and illusions, no one wants a seeing and a feeling person around.

Now comes to mind the anonymous letter published by New York Times from someone in the Trump administration -- where he/she tells the public that are adults in the room! That's a big lie -- because they are no adults in the Trump administration! Some just fake it better than others, Donald Trump can't fake it anymore and he acts exactly like the little child out of control that he is! I no longer have illusions with people!
The only intimate relationship I want from now on is with myself, as long I'm honest with myself and stay true to myself -- that's all it matters to me.
