Emotional abuse is not like other forms of abuse. If you are being physically abused or sexually abused, you can prove it. You have physical scars or ways to show that you have been abused. You can also easily describe what happened. Of course, many victims of physical and sexual abuse won’t tell anyone, and like victims of emotional abuse, they may not realize that they are being abused. It is easier, however, for them to realize what is actually going on. A victim of emotional abuse may not realize that they have been abused for many years, if ever. In spite of this, emotional abuse is just as damaging and destructive as other forms of abuse. It can lead to depression, despair, PTSD, and even suicide. Often times, victims of emotional abuse think that the problem is with them. They think that if they changed the way they acted or did things differently that their abuser would stop. This is why emotional abuse is so subversive. It’s hard to pin down. And that is exactly why we are writing this list. Actually, think of this as more of a checklist. If you or someone you know is dealing with all or even most of these 25 items, it may be a good idea to seek help. These are 25 troubling signs of those who cause emotional abuse.
