Emotional abuse is a weapon normally used to control and bring dominance upon the other person. This is often because the abuser has past childhood wounds and insecurities that are still fresh, mostly because they were abused themselves.

Do not cope with an emotionally abusive relationship. At the end of the day, it is never worth it.

Emotionally abusive relationships end up damaging your self-esteem and dignity. It often involves a consistent pattern of verbal attacks, threats, bullying, and unending criticism, using tools like manipulation, intimidation, and shaming.

In an emotionally abusive relationship, a form of deception is involved. This is because the victim usually would not see the experience as abusive. Coping mechanisms of denial are developed in order to subdue the attack.

However, the effects of long-term emotional abuse will cause emotional trauma and upheaval resulting in several dysfunctions and complications.

Emotional abuse can be debilitating and traumatic. God wants you free from emotionally abusive relationships.

Look at the scriptures:

Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

Psa 124:7 (KJV)

Now, let’s identify some sure signs that you may be in an emotionally abusive relationship.

1. Your Individuality is in question
You are viewed as an extension of themselves rather than as an individual. Your opinions are disrespected and you are constantly reminded that without them, you are nothing. Your suggestions and ideas are trampled. When you find yourself in such, it is time to walk away.

2. Unending Chastisement
You are corrected or chastised for your behaviors, almost all the time and publicly too. There is nothing you do that is right. Every word you speak is an error.

3. False Accusation
You are dubbed “over-sensitive” in order that you can continue coping with the unending abuse and manipulations. You are constantly told to “grow up!”

To be continued tomorrow…

The eyes of my understanding are opened to see these signs.

Lord, open the eyes of my understanding.

Pro 6:5 (KJV) Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.

Disconnect from every wrong relationship when you see these signs.
