Are YOU in an Abusive Relationship?

By  |  0 Comments

There are many signs that indicate we are in abusive relationships, but often we fail to see them.  Many people think abusive relationships are only those that contain physical violence. Not true. Your partner is abusive when they try to erode your self worth and confidence, such as when they:

… Constantly attempt to humiliate you in front of others.
… Ask for your opinion, only to shoot it down and demand you “think about it again.”
… Constantly doubt your ability to do things.
… Accuse you of being “too touchy” and “sensitive” to THEIR criticism – which is never “constructive” but always “destructive.”
… Call you names.
