1. Get a Clue—Know how to identify a psychopath. Know the traits and pay attention when you feel something is off or wrong about someone. Distance yourself enough to gain perspective and dig deep to see what the psychopath is really saying and doing. Trust yourself.
2. Get a Grip—Help yourself first and foremost. Yes, you will feel victimized, used and angry. But in order for you to be ok after a relationship with a psychopath you must realize there was no way to win against a psychopath. Forgive yourself for not knowing that he/she is a psychopath.
3. Get a Life—Without the psychopath in it. Change everything if you have to. Move if you need to. Change jobs if you can. Your priority is to get away and start again. Move on.
These three steps may sound easy but they are not. Ask for help or find a support group familiar with psychopaths.
Know that with strength, knowledge and dedication, there is nothing you cannot accomplish.
