I was in an emotionally abusive relationship for about 5 years. First things first, you CAN become strong enough to leave....It may take some time. Get help! I saw a therapist for about 2-3 years and she helped me gain my self confidence and the strength I needed to leave my partner. Get a support system. Family, friends or anyone that can be there for you. My partner turned into a stalker.....if that happens, maybe you need the help of the police. Read books on this topic. Learn the abusers' techniques...They like to belittle and make you feel less than what you're worth. That makes them feel better. Once you understand what they're doing, it will make you stronger to fight back. Hope this helped. What I did was I started to take action, positive action. First of all taken safety if you married or living together, go to your landlord and explain you want them taken off the lease and get the locks changed. Then disconnect completely from mutual friends and family. Change your phone number and get it unlisted. Once these things are taken care of, move preferably if you can. Then start a new life. Go through the pain and move on to bigger and better. Good luck. In life, every decision is a trade-off. There is always a price to pay. You should weigh and decide what you value more: avoiding his abusive conduct or avoiding his wrath and stalking if you leave him.

You may be hooked on your own image or fantasy of what the relationship should be, and on the first stages of it, or the honeymoon period of a relationship. Abusers can be especially charming in the beginning, to hook you emotionally. You need to assess the relationship for what it's become, not what you wish it could be or was in the beginning.

How do you help someone who is in an emotionally abusive relationship?

Abusive relationships are some of the most difficult ones to resolve. THis type of relationship assumes that one partner is abusive and continues to be so because there is no response to the abuse. The difference here centers on "self-assurance." The abusive partner continues his or her behavior because there is no response. I can not suggest how the abused party should respond because in most instances they feel diminished. This situation can only be resolved through extended counseling, if at all.
