Emotional abuse   

 

Nearly all abusive relationships include some emotional abuse. Although insults and threats might seem less serious than violence, the long-term impact can be devastating. Many survivors say that the emotional abuse was the hardest part of their relationship and left the longest-lasting scars. Broken confidence can be much harder to make sense of, or prove to others, than broken bones.

Emotional abuse chips away at your self-esteem until you feel that you are nothing without your abuser and you can’t live without them. It can make you feel worthless and that you are to blame for all the problems in your family.

Emotional abuse can include:


Insults – hearing that you are “useless” or “ugly”, “a bad parent”
Shouting – at you or at your children
Blaming you – for everything that goes wrong in their life, your relationship and your family
Threatening you – with violence, or suicide or exposure (telling to the authorities)
Threatening others to make you co-operate – your children, pets or family members
Isolation – preventing you from seeing family or friends, not allowing you to work.
Jealousy – accusing you of having affairs, punishing you for having previous partners
Shaming or embarrassing you in front of others.
