Jeffrey Dahmer is not someone who should be idolized. He was a murderer and a cannibal who destroyed the lives of many people. His behavior was evil and his acts of heinous violence are condemned.
In interviews, Jeffrey Dahmer described a compulsion or an urge to kill that he could not suppress. As a adult, his compulsion escalated, likely in part because he indulged his fantasies. He visited bookstores, gay bars and bathhouses and eventually began using sleeping pills to drug unsuspecting sexual partners. Committing murder was not something that he originally intended.
Though no one can be certain, it is reasonable to believe that had Dahmer pursued intensive psychological treatment to address his compulsion, he may never have killed. Psychological help could have made a positive, life-altering difference. If you were to follow Dahmer’s path your future would include public humiliation, a conviction and being beaten to death while in prison.
Don’t ignore this issue. Your urge is unhealthy and concerning. The next step is to address it by seeing a therapist. A therapist can evaluate your situation and provide an appropriate course of treatment. Therapy could help you to understand your thoughts and teach you how to redirect your urge on healthier outlets.
Please consider therapy. Your thoughts and urges are not healthy. Thinking in a positive way about a serial killer who ate the flesh of his victims could never, under any circumstances, be considered healthy or even tolerable. You, at this point in time, have hurt no one. Therapy can help to make sure that you do not hurt anyone, including yourself.
Please take care.
