Do they believe the nasty and hurtful things they say? In my experience, my ex psychopath said whatever he thought would work to get what he wanted, to manipulate, to hurt others. He is a pathological liar. Sadly, your ex likely said those horrible things to control you, to hurt you, and maybe on the off chance that you would feel guilty and/or sorry for him so that he would be able to continue to exploit you.

I found that once I understood and accepted what my ex psychopath’s motivations are, I was able to predict his behavior. It’s very difficult for a normal person to believe that anyone would want what spaths want, that anyone could be so uncaring about the well being of others, and could lie as much as they do. They fulfill the definition of evil.

Congratulations on your commitment to have no more contact with your ex! It is the most difficult thing in the world; and it is the best thing you can do for yourself and for the other people in the world who care about you and value you.
