A diagnosed sociopath lets people ask him anything, shutting down myths about the disorder


Man cries in his car while listening to ‘Iris’ by the Goo Goo Dolls, and people can’t help but relate

Though content creator Oliver Mills is no stranger to serenading viewers on his TikTok channel with his charming, laid-back “car-aoke” videos, he recently hit listeners right in the feels as he began unabashedly shedding tears while singing the iconic 90’s rock song (slash ultimate sad anthem) “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls.

In the caption of the raw, vulnerable video, Mills wrote, “Crying in the car is healing,” and included hashtags like #mentalhealthawareness, #mentalhealthmatters, and #mensmentalhealth.

The song was written by John Rzeznik for the movie “City Of Angels” to convey the immortal protagonist’s willingness to give up eternal life for love. But despite the specific storyline, it touches on something universal—that aching feeling of yearning for love. Add to that Rzeznik’s passionate, wistful vocals, and oof, you’ve got the perfect song for the bittersweet beauty of love at all its stages. Really, it’s got something for everyone.

A diagnosed sociopath lets people ask him anything, shutting down myths about the disorder

The term “sociopath” is something that people don’t often understand. The public’s exposure to what a sociopath is generally comes from the media depictions, usually in some psychological thriller that portrays the villain as a manipulative, out-of-control killer. They slap the sociopath label on them either in the background information or through inference.

But what is a sociopath? For starters, it’s not actually called “sociopath,” though the terms are sometimes used interchangeably. The correct diagnosis is “antisocial personality disorder,” and the Mayo Clinic defines it as, “a mental health condition in which a person consistently shows no regard for right and wrong and ignores the rights and feelings of others.” While it’s true that people who have this specific type of personality disorder often engage in criminal behavior, that doesn’t mean they are going to be unpredictably violent.

Greg, a man who says he was diagnosed with sociopathy around the age of 21, sat down to answer people’s questions about the disorder.

There was an uproar after the Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to honor the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence on LGBTQ Pride Night. There has also been an ongoing controversy surrounding Target selling LGBTQ-friendly merchandise.

Clearly, if people are getting riled up over the normalization of LGBTQ culture throughout America, we must be amid a considerable backlash, right? In reality, the truth is the exact opposite.
