What Is Emotional Abuse?

We all have a right to be happy and to feel appreciated in life. But in a toxic relationship where emotional abuse is prevalent, realistically, you have allowed someone to subjugate you even without meaning to. Therefore, it’s important to regain control of your life. When a relationship is controlling, it’s easy to lose your sense of self-worth. You may no longer value who you are and spend much of the time trying to avoid upsetting your partner. You may try to meet or exceed their expectations but living this way means perpetually treading on eggshells. It’s unhealthy.

You deserve to be happy. You do not, however, deserve to be obligated to someone who does not value you. To break free from a relationship filled with emotional abuse, you need to recognize that you are not the problem. Abusers are clever, they recognize any weakness within you. Perhaps you love too much and they turn it against you. This is conscious manipulation and control. The abuser has the problem and not you, no matter how it feels.
