Empathy is impossible during an affair, but you have none for anyone involved because you also push out of your head you are destroying the Ap and this bs too. In that way it’s why even if people claim to love each other in an affair it could never be pure because you don’t care about what’s best for that person. You begin to only care what feels best for you. That’s why a lot of us present like narcissistic people during that time.
Kind of a sedated high while enacting mutually assured destruction.
Really, thats what it comes down to. These two concepts juxtaposed for a while. Of course the first usually disappates while the other can last a lifetime, sometimes through generations.
This being true, compartmentalization/cognitive dissonance has to be a powerful phenomenon. Just reading of the hurt & destruction that litters the landscape of this site and others attests to that.
