My mother would often push back against the controlling tendencies of her partners, for example by ignoring their phone calls or not answering the door to them.Her rejection of them would then trigger their abandonment wounds, sending them into a dangerous kind of psychosis.For me as a child, home was most definitely not safe.The ‘psycho’ you see represented in the video is a borderline male who has deep emotional wounds in relation to abandonment.Even to this day my mother has an ex partner who does laps walking around her house from front to back multiple times per day, creepily whistling as he walks so that she knows he is there.

When he is in a relationship, or even casually dating, he lives in constant fear that the relationship could end at any given moment.

Even I managed to read Susanna Kaysen’s memoir Girl, Interrupted (perhaps more commonly recognized in its 1999 Winona Ryder filmic reimagining) twice and didn’t glean that it was ostensibly describing what I had.

My advice to anyone who recognises the 7 signs of dating a psycho in their own relationship dynamics is to wake up to the oppression under which you are living: It’s your life and you have a choice over whether you choose to live your life in fear or not.
