No one expects to find themselves in an abusive relationship. Most relationships begin
in a good way with kind words and compliments, but they can turn harmful and
emotionally abusive at any time.
Emotional abuse is a type of domestic violence that often flies under the radar, but it
should always be taken seriously as a form of abuse. When emotional abuse is present
in a relationship, a partner will criticize, threaten or isolate their partner as a way to
manipulate and control them. Emotional abuse can be degrading, humiliating and
terrifying, often leaving long-lasting scars on one’s spirit and self-esteem.
So, how do you know if you’re in an abusive relationship? What can you do when a
loved one is being emotionally abused? Let’s start with recognizing the tactics of
emotional abuse.
