if you have the black eyes, s/he's abusive Guess what? I've never had a black eye. That doesn't mean I haven't been abused (especially since I've been afraid for my life). * Explain why you fear for your life if you are not being Physically Abused (Pushed, kicked, shoved , etc). If you are being Verbally threatened , what is he/she saying , WHY & How Often ???? Generalities or statements , without specifics, are meaningless.

It could. But not every Bipolar person is abusive. It should however, never be an excuse for abuse. A person who is abusive Bipolar or not, is wrong in what they are doing. Seek help if you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship/situation.

because why would you want to be with someone who is abusive towards you

If someone is in an abusive relationship forever, they're going to get killed or injured. So I think its best to be single forever.

We cannot speak for all abusive men, but we assume that most of them know that they are abusers. Abusive men tend to come from abusive homes, and the behavior may seem normal to them. Others may feel that such behavior is their right. Most of them know the law, but when rage strikes, the law often doesn't mean much.

Many do and do it for the power trip. Some however, do not..it is a way of life.

More than likely that person does not want anyone to know that they are being abusive to someone. They also like to have control and power over that person. The person who is being abused needs to get out of that relationship, also, the one doing the abuse needs to seek help to see why they are abusive. I hope that this helps. God Bless:)

Try to find someone you can trust. Or someone you know isn't abusive. At any sign of violence, be wary and stay away from that person. Eventually, you will find the right person. But remember this: don't be shy. You never know whether the next person is like the person before that one if you keep shying away from them.

Yes, it is. If someone is abused or sees/hears a lot of abuse when they are younger chances are they are going to be abusive themselves.

How Do I know if I'm a narrcissitic person

I would let someone know that you are being abused when you visit your father. Perhaps his visitation with you can be supervised so you will not be hurt from him. Let your mother know this is occurring and she can have it supervised.

User Avatar

Fathers should not be abusive. If you are being abused, you need to tell someone you trust that you are being abused and you need help. As to why some are abusive, it could be that they were abused and they don't know any better, or it gives them a sense of control over you, or any number of other things. In any case, no one should ever abuse you. Get help.

It could; abusive behavior is learned and if you grew up in an abusive environment it can be very deeply entrenched. If you unwittingly hurt someone else, try to make amends to hopefully avert a negative karmic reaction...

User Avatar

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!

User Avatar

Let them know that it is not ok to talk to you in that way. Tell them that you will not be around them anymore if they can not address you in a respectful way. If it continues, you might have to disassociate yourself with them.

An abusive man (emotional,physical, etc.) will seek insecure woman.Woman who are not independant. Someone to take care of their needs.And that is it, someone to satisfy their needs. An abusive man can not change, a woman can not change him. He has to change himself. He had to do it all alone, if he really wants to recover.I really wish all the ladies in abusive relationships strength. That is what they need to leave.

It depends on the circumstance. If the kick in the air is aimed toward someone, then it is an attempted abusive action. If it is just a regular kick in the air, then it has no harm to anyone whatsoever, and isn't considered an abusive action at all.

User Avatar

Talk to someone, get your feelings out. Things feel so much better when you tell someone, hopefully someone you trust.

User Avatar

Men who are abusive generally have learned this from the environment in which they grew up. Some men have a short fuse and blast off with either verbally abusive words or they become physically abusive with their partner. Some men know deep inside it is wrong, but don't know how to get help and most men refuse to seek psychological counseling because it makes them feel weak and not masculine. If he refuses to get help then you have the power to get out of the abusive relationship.

User Avatar

No. Don't tell him. If he is abusive I'm sure he will hurt you. If you need to get it off your head go and talk to someone but please don't tell him.

User Avatar

No, because if they are still being abusive, they see the world from another perspective. If you are expecting that this will happen or that you can convince someone that they are abusive, chances are that you won't see it happen. About all you can do is to call them on their behavior, saying how it makes you feel. A good book is Patricia Evan's The Abusive Relationship.

You speak to her about it or you ask someone who she respects to do it for you.

User Avatar

To describe someone or a behavior that abuses someone/something, you would say abusive. Example: He was verbally abusivetowards the hair stylist.You can also refer to a victim of abuse as "abused."Example: The abused victim went to court.

It is not abusive, but it is heartbreaking. Do know that there is someone else out there for you that is obviously better suited than your ex. Don't torture yourself by watching her new life, move on with your own.
