Understanding Emotional Abuse

Posted on January 30, 2018 at 9:55 PM


Emotional abuse is a horrific experience. By definition, it is "any act which may diminish the sense of identity, dignity, or self worth of another human being". It is also known as psychological abuse, verbal abuse, or verbal aggression.People who experience emotional abuse oten experience low self-esteem, personality changes, depression, anxiety, and suicidal ideations. I have worked with women over the years who have been emotionally abused in their marriages and relationships. I have also seen many women gather up the strength and courage that it often takes to get out of these relationships. Sadly, I have seen many women who stay far too long and suffer lifelong consequences.I founded Pathways to Peace because I have a heavy heart for these women and I understand and can relate to their need for peace. It is my mission to help identify emotional abuse and to help women get the support they need to walk away, to become whole again, and to heal from the scars inflicted by this kind of toruture. Emotional abuse takes away a woman's sense of self, identity,and purpose. It is a dark place to be...especally when someone claims they love you. It is sheer torture to live under the same roof as someone who is emotionally abusing you.I have listed here some common signs of emotional abuse:

Yelling or cussing at you

Name calling




Threats of abandonment

Intentionally frightening you

Threats to take away food or care


Repeated false allegations of cheating, without merit

Isolating you from friends and family

Withholding money or informaiton

Repeatedly speaking about death, either yours or the abuser's

Excessive criticism

Disrespectful behavior

Treating you like a servant or a child

Just like physical abuse, emotional abuse tends to manifest itself as a repeated cycle including the abuse itself, guilt about the consequences, excuse-making, resuming normal behaviors as if the abuse never happened,shifting the blame to the victim, becomng extra apologetic, and then repeating the abuse all over again.If you have questions or comments abou this topic, feel free leave your comments below.

The subsequent time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I know it was my option to read, but I truly thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you can repair when you werent too busy searching for attention.
