5 Reasons Why It Takes So Long To Get Over A Psychopath

 July 01, 2016


This in-turn makes you doubt yourself and the decisions you make in a relationship. Since the reality has been altered, so has your belief and the level of trust in people. This mental trauma is hard to bear, and you feel smothered by all the negativity emanating from their actions.


5. Your Soul Was Shattered

When they finally make your feel miserable, your soul starts to crumble. They succeed in bringing down the mental health and crush your free will. You feel this immense burden to carry on with life. But at the same time, you begin to question your sanity.

You doubt yourself and want to make things right, but find yourself lacking the vital energy to move on or mend things. Psychopaths are energy parasites who nourish their sadism by feeding on others’ positiveness.

Since they have instilled in you enough doubt to make you feel guilty, your emotional burden starts outweighing your willingness to move on. Thus, it takes much longer to get out of the darkness created by a psychopath.

  1. I think words like psychopath and sociopath get thrown around too often. Remember if you really love or loved them you could only think of them as hurt human beings. If you really love them you let them come and go, have safe boundaries for yourself, as true love really is unconditional.

  2. It can take so long, because talking is a major part of healing and you often cannot find the words to describe this insidious abuse.

  3. Very well written article and exactly what I experienced, the rethinking of everything, humans, etc. I wish I had this to read when I was going through it. I had to depend on myself and a Higher Power and we did come through it stronger and healthier than ever before. My psychopath was the greatest soulmate I ever had as it taught me everything, about love, forgiveness, being true to me…..everything I would not have known… Thank you soulmate, but gotta go…

  4. it takes so long because of the knowledge that the psychopath doesn’t change and never gives up or takes no for an answer – they seem to believe that they owned you and always will
