Society Menaces consist of Bullies, Flying Monkeys, Narcissists, Sociopaths, and Psychopaths. These opportunists target and victimize vulnerable people for their own personal gain, or entertainment purposes, as one might exploit an object, or an appliance.
Many times, people do not realize what is happening to them until they have already become fully enmeshed in the sticky webs of these menaces and victimized, often resulting in PTSD.
It is important that we learn the Red Flags of these ruthless individuals’ insidious tactics, and learn to trust that voice that tugs at us from within: our intuition.
A Few Red Flags:
1). Our intuition kicks in (even subtlety, at first), and says “something just isn’t right,” (even if we can’t put our finger on what that something might be);
2). The things that the person says, or does, are confusing (though, the confusion might seem subtle, at first);
3). The person’s actions do not match their words;
4). A Menace is never in the wrong (though their excuses might seem plausible, the Menaces always seem to have plenty of them);
5). Drama seems to follow them; Victim-Card (I’m not talking about everyday problems that we all experience, or even Natural Disasters, but rather, major drama that never ends, such as: constantly losing their job; continually needing to borrow money or other resources; consistently being in arguments with others; being robbed over and over, again, like clockwork; often ending up in the hospital (apart from justifiable illnesses)); ETC.;
6). We experience abnormal stress, anxiety, unsettled feelings, or have heart palpitations (not romantically induced) when a menace is planning to visit us, or after they have left;
7). They know a lot about us, but we know nothing concrete about them (except for what they have told us); we’ve not actually seen where they live, spend their time (besides with us), who are their friends and family, where they work, ETC.;
9). They claim that the felony/felonies that they committed was/were not their fault, because…
10). We seem to constantly be pulled into their brow-raising drama…
And, as a closing, I’d like to leave you with a final though… Society Menaces, the diabolical kind, suck.
Of course, there are many more Red Flags, but these are just a small handful!

Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.
