A lot of us have had our fair share of bad experiences in relationships. Many have had to undergo the grueling experiences of dating abusive men who try to manipulate their women physically, mentally, and emotionally. These are the types of relationships that ladies should always try their best to stay away from. They can leave a person deeply scarred emotionally and it can ruin the idea of finding love for them. They may never be encouraged to pursue a relationship ever again if an experience can be particularly traumatizing.
There is a substantial amount of pain in abusive relationships. When you’re caught in a relationship with a perpetual psychopath, you have a hard time getting out. You’re left confused because things didn’t always used to be so toxic. He used to act so normal and endearing. He made you fall head over heels with his charm and charisma. You couldn’t see the evil that was hiding under the blankets of his gorgeous smile and seductive eyes.
You didn’t know that underneath the façade of joy, happiness, and love, there was a man with a dark and twisted nature. But now you’re stuck in the relationship, and the damage has been done. You’re doing what you can to survive. You want to get out, but you don’t know how. You were always led to believe that relationships were tough, and you needed to work on them really hard.
You thought that hardships like yours were normal, and that you just needed to put more effort into the relationship. However, it wasn’t normal, and you knew it. There was something off about your relationship, and you needed to save yourself. If only you had known earlier, then you wouldn’t have had to suffer through those tough emotional and physical trials.
There’s no point in trying to salvage a relationship with someone who is crazy. You don’t deserve the pain that is afforded to you by a psychopath. At the first signs of craziness, you should always act swiftly and get out of the relationship while it’s early. You don’t want to get caught when things start getting way too deep and you no longer have the strength to climb out. Here are some signs that you happen to be dating a man who is a psychopath.
1. He always blames you whenever your relationship isn’t going well.
He knows that he’s the cause of all the turmoil in his relationship but his pride would never allow him to admit it. He is always looking to victimize you and make you believe that everything is your fault. He will make you feel so bad about being the cause of all the trouble in your partnership that you will end up feeling guilty about it. He knows that your guilt won’t let you leave him whenever times get rough. He knows how to manipulate people who are feeling very weak and vulnerable into doing whatever he wants.
2. He lies constantly just to make you feel bad about yourself.
He will make up a lot of fake facts and data. He will twist dates and important details. He will perpetrate false propaganda about you over and over again. He will do it so consistently to the point where even you start questioning your own sanity. He will just lie to you on a serial basis. He doesn’t think that you’re worthy of the truth and he doesn’t care about how these lies will make you feel. He just knows that the more he is able to make you doubt yourself, the more control he is going to have over you and over the relationship.
3. He says it’s your fault that he isn’t getting the most out of life.
Because he is a psychopath, he is bound to be a screw-up in the life outside of your relationship as well. The bad part is that he will end up blaming you for it. He will tell you that he isn’t able to achieve his dreams and pursue his passions because of you. He will lead you to believe that he is making lots of sacrifices for you when in truth, he has no one else to blame but himself. He will always find a way to make it seem like you’re the villain in his story.
4. He belittles you in every way possible to break your spirit.
He doesn’t want you to have any sense of self-worth. He wants to take complete ownership of your being and so he will try to break you to the point wherein you lose all confidence. He will belittle you constantly. He will never fail to point out your flaws, and he will always guilt-trip you into doing whatever he wants you to do. He is a manipulative psycho and you are his victim.
5. He isolates you from everyone else so you can’t ask for help.
He knows that loneliness and solitude can breed weakness, and that’s what he wants to happen. He wants you to become so weak to the point where you can’t survive on your own. He wants you to think that the only way you can get through life is if you stay with him. He wants you to believe that no one else is going to help you escape from the hole that you’re stuck in.
