Psychopaths can never change PERMANENTLY. All changes are “short lived” due to the fact that their brains are built in a way that do not allow them to learn from their experiences. Faulty wiring that CANNOT be fixed. Any attempted changes to their ways generally they falter and they revert back to their “default” setting. In this sense, I really saw how hard he wanted to start a fresh, be good and make something out of his life BUT he was never able to sustain it for longer than a month? two months? a week? Each woman he hooked up with offered a new promise to a normal life – but he always fucked it up. And within a period of time (generally 2 years) the relationships were torn and tattered and he had to move on.
