The first step on the road to recovery is to end the relationship. Continued abuse will prevent your healing and recovery. Answer I'm unsure if you have left the relationship--so I will answer as if you have. First thing you need to do is make sure you and your children (if any) are safe. Next, I would suggest seeking counseling or some form of therapy. After I left the relationship, at first I missed him and thought I made a HORRIBLE mistake. During counseling and getting comfort from the Lord, I recognized the abuse for all it was and am now thankful it is over. Even now, nearly 1.5 years later, I still have emotional struggles---but nothing compared to previous!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can do it!!!!! Many others have gone before you, so know you are not alone!!!!!! God Bless

Answer2: Recognize that you matter to God and others, and are worthy of being loved and cherished. Verbal and emotional abuse is just another form of violence, so do don't downplay it, you deserve so much more. Please get the help you need even if it means getting some form of mental counseling. You are not obligated to stay in that type of relationship and you CANNOT make a person change. Good health to you!
