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 should definitely go. An abusive relationship is unhealthy for you both physically and emotionally. If you continue to stay with that abusive person, you will more than likely end up being attracted to more abusive people in the future. In fact some abusive relationships can lead to suicide and/or being murdered.

Communicating with your abuser is an art form. It is called "walking on eggshells". If you think the relationship is getting emotionally abusive no need to talk...best to walk and do it fast. Once the abuse begins in the cycle, it is hard to get out. The longer the cycle has been spinning the more difficult to leave.

If you always fight, then it is an abusive relationship. If you do not want to be around your boyfriend/girlfriend, then it is an abusive relationship. If you can not talk or be around your family and friends then you are in an abusive relationship.

Get and read the book WOMEN WHO LOVE PSYCHOPATHS Don't be put off by the title - it will help you understand. Take this as a sign that this man isn't right for you in the first place hence "Emotionally abusive.. You would want him to walk away. Rather than torture you into staying in a emotionally ill relationship, You get to move on with your life.. Everything happens for a reason take this as a lesson about relationships. You need to see a therapist to talk about your relationship. I'm actually seeing one for a previous relationship that was unhealthy..

I'm not sure if it's a full-blown emotional abusive relationship, or even on the road to becoming that way, but I do feel taken advantage of him at times.

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.

Woman always try to give excuses in order to stay in an abusive relationship. If your in an abusive relationship then get out of one. It does not matter if you love them if they are hitting you they don't love you. There is no reason for a woman to stay in a abusive relationship. If they are abusive then they are blinded.

Here are some sentences.He is in an abusive relationship.Abusive behavior is not tolerated here.

Why would you call someone who is "emotionally and verbally abusive" - your "friend"? Abusers cannot be friends because they lack empathy and the ability to truly love someone else or relate to others!

Break up with him, that will make him realize how serious his behaviour is. You should not be with him if he is abusive, that only encourages his behaviour. He will think, "well, she is still with me so I can't be that bad." recording him What is he doing that is Abusive --- Not all Abusive behaviours necessitate breaking up a 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.

The key to the problem is your sister and until she realizes that she is in an abusive relationship there is not much you can do. Of course you love your sister, but the best thing you can do is to say nothing and know she has to learn the hard way. This is certainly a difficult task for you as you want to keep her safe and see her happy, but your sister has to see that in herself first.

If your husband is verbally and emotionally abusive, you can break the negative cycle by seeking the services of a family counselor or filing for divorce.

No, it's not worth it, you should try fixing the relationship somehow. Maybe a marriage counselor or something can help. But you are the one that has to decide what to do, no one can decide for you
