Domestic and child abuse are in the headlines way to often in today’s society. It seems to be a common trend among many celebrities and sport figures, and sensationalized in the media. Sometimes a bloody murder will result shrouded in mystery, but catches the intrigue of society,.
But emotional and pyschological abuse is more subtle than the obvious being hit or shoved. It goes far deeper. as the abuser will often play on the fears and insecurities of the abused.
Here are some serious warning to watch out for:
1. When an abuser makes their love for you conditional of you doing things that please them, at no thought for yourself.
2. When they give you the pissy silent treatment for little or no reason at all.
3. They seem get enjoyment in putting you down and making fun of you.
4. They have extramarital affairs and lie about them.
5.. They are unreasonably jealous of anyone and everyone.
6, They become very moody and easily annoyed.
The sad thing is that many people who have grown up with emotional abuse are often deluded into believing that the abuse is normal or that they deserve it. This is especially true if the person was raised by an abusive parent or parents. In a toxic home environment, guilt mongering is a manipulative tool used by the controlling parent. For example, you should feel guilty just for existing because they never wanted you, as if you had any control over being born. It was all your fault that they brought you into the world,
When an abused child becomes an adult he/she generally chooses a spouse who are the abusivre parent.
