Those of you who are aware of this awful story will feel a seething rage for the above mentioned woman. Her appalling actions have lead to her life imprisonment. Her butchering of a totally innocent woman is nothing short of evil. As I looked at various news websites I froze in horror as I saw the moment she was arrested whilst still in her bed. I shuddered at the thought that this woman could go to sleep knowing what she had done. It defies belief! This story has garnered so much attention because of the sheer brutality behind it. However, something that I read amongst the various news stories about this, jumped out at me. Allegedly there was a psychiatric evaluation of her and one of the conclusions they came to was that her personality fitted a certain type: a histrionic one.
Apparently these personalities need to seek recognition and affirmation due to severe lack of self-esteem. One way of doing this is by using their sexuality. From a young age, this woman has been kept by a 'sugar daddy' as well as pursuing other men whether they were married or not. If she was rebuffed she sought to cause as much damage and embarrassment as she could by harassing her affair partner and hurting their partners by letting them know what has been happening. It also stated that she was predatory in her encounters with these men. All of this has got me thinking about the mind of the OW and her need to gain some form of recognition by pursuing and obtaining her object of desire. In my situation the OW was definitely predatory in pursuit of my now ex-partner. It did sicken me to watch it and I am to this day still very angry with myself that I didn't tackle her behaviour sooner. But hey! I thought she was a friend and friends don't do that to one another. Right? Wrong! But that's another story. Sarah Williams is an extreme and depraved example of the depths that some OW will go to to get what the man that they want. How absolutely appalling!
...Why does the pain of an affair hurt so much? That question can only be truly answered by those who have experienced it, and as someone who has, I hope this blog can offer some insight to the agony that you are facing.
