"Is it just me, or is it somewhat ironic that many of the people on these 'Narcissist' Recovery forums met their ex on millionairematch.com and elitesingles.com?"
- Thomas Sheridan
A psychopath is the shadow that is cast by an invisible demon, if one wants to go down the allegorical route.
Even so, before you call someone a 'psychopath' it's always a really good idea to check that you are not just dealing with a regular asshole. Then, following this, try to determine if it is you that might be the asshole. In all seriousness, these are importantant distinctions.
If you have been damaged by an encounter with a psychopath - either through bullying at work, or in a vicious relationship - you'll be far too traumatised/numb/confused to be seeking revenge. You need non-hysterical information, and I would suggest staying away from most recovery forums, as they are filled with people who will delay your recovery by locking you into a toxic trap of seeking revenge and eternal hatred. If you do go on a forum to seek support, make sure the moderators and owners of the site are ALL using their real names. The witchhunt and mass hysteria nature of some of these forums are also a clear giveaway that you are not in healthy hands at all when you pour out your personal story on them.
Please consider the information on this site HERE and do seek out a good professional and be willing to listen to what they tell you. Many people today are made highly codependent and seek to blame others rather than deal with their own issues. However, if you have been a target of gaslighting and mind games which were purposefully designed to destroy your mind, body and soul, then you need to take care of your well-being and emotional health first by relying on the ones you love and who can support you.
I present this information and it's up to you to consider it, in a mature and honest manner. Good luck and best wishes towards your own recovery story. There is always hope. Remember this.
