While everyone can relate to a not-so-good relationship experience, not all of us really understand the horrors of dating emotionally unstable and abusive individuals. They have the power to turn your world upside down, scar you for life and destroy every hope and dream of finding true love.
Being stuck in a relationship with an emotional psychopath can result in harmful consequences. It’s a lot like being lost in a daunting maze, desperately trying to save yourself from all the traps in order to find your way out. And the more you struggle to find the exit, the more you lose yourself.
So, if you’ve started detecting some harmful and abusive behavior in your partner, then you better find a way to get yourself out of there. These are the typical behaviors of an emotional psychopath that you should be on the lookout for:
1. THEY TEND TO DISTORT THE TRUTH
Emotional psychopaths are people who have a way to make you believe everything they say. On their ultimate quest for power, they operate with manipulation and dirty lies.
So, in order to make you their slave, they’ll make sure to twist all the facts and distort the reality you were once aware of. And you won’t even notice them at first. Until all your world comes crashing down.
2. THEY PUT ALL THE BLAME ON YOU
And when that happens, and all hell breaks loose, you’ll be the one to blame. If they cheated on you, it’s because you were distant and never there. If you started to argue, it is only because you made them so upset, they couldn’t control their temper.
Every little thing, every disagreement, every decision you make, it’s wrong. If you find yourself forced to play this never-ending game of disappointments, you better get the hell out of there.
3. THEY’LL TEAR YOU DOWN WHENEVER THEY HAVE THE CHANCE
An emotional psychopath will always make sure to belittle you because the only person who needs to be in charge of the relationship is them. Because the only way they could mistreat and abuse you is by making themselves better than you. In other words, their ego is their own Holy Grail.
They’ll make you feel miserable, worthless, ridiculous in front of everyone, they will literally tear you down. If you recognized this awful feeling and you’re already trapped in a never-ending cycle, please try harder. Try harder to save yourself. You deserve real love.
4. THEY ISOLATE YOU FROM EVERYONE
One of their most effective, sneaky methods in order to control you is isolating you from the world. From every friend and all the family, you have. They will mess with your head and tell you all sorts of poisonous lies.
They’ll persuade you that your loved ones only want to tear your relationship apart. They’ll make you turn your back on them. And, once you become aware of this, it will already be too late.
Don’t allow to fall into the rabbit hole of manipulation. Whatever it happens, stick to what you believe in and stay strong.
5. THEY DESPERATELY CRAVE ATTENTION BUT FAIL TO GIVE ANY
Emotionally abusive individuals feed on energy and constant attention from others. They desperately crave to be the life of the party act like they’re entitled to everything around them.
However, the biggest irony of it all is that they would rarely give anything in return. In fact, it is safe to say that you are getting absolutely nothing from this person. They want their hunger satisfied, but they won’t move a finger for you.
