“All things human hang by a slender thread; and that which seemed to stand strong suddenly falls and sinks in ruins”
The illusion of the psychopath “standing strong” can’t last. Cracks appear in his mask of smoke and mirrors. One day, the psychopath will no longer have any power over you. He will “fall and sink in ruins” when you realize he never really stood strong, that it was all deception. That may be hard to accept, but with acceptance comes freedom.
