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!

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!

If you are feeling bad about the way you are treated or spoken to - and your pleas to stop this kind of behavior went unheeded - then you are being emotionally (verbally, psychologically) abused.

You can begin talking, generally, about the effects children experience with being verbally and emotionally abused, including in the context of peer-to-peer bullying. Your child may never open up to you directly, but you can convey your feelings about knowing children are abused verbally and emotionally.

I think that you two need to go to therapy. It sounds like you are trying to make this work. By going to therapy, you two can say how you truly feel and he can tell why he does what he does and says. I wish you all the best of luck. God Bless:)

The white people didn't like that the blacks were near them. Although the segregation laws had been diminished, the white people still verbally and emotionally attacked the blacks.

You don't - either seek help through marriage counselling or through talking about it, or separate.

He will verbally abuse you by saying very hurtful things as well as play head games and constantly toy with your emotional state. It is best to get out of this relationship as soon as possible.

Although it's mentally unhealthy for everyone involved, the answer is yes. If the son and father share a mutual disgust for the mother they can bond in this fashion.

If she is always walking on egg shells around him, or he is never happy or satisfied. If he has a pattern of abuse in his past. It could be that he watched his dad abuse his mom.
