There are a few different types of abuse that are prevalent in today’s society. It seems that physical abuse is the most common form of abuse, but that isn’t necessarily the case. It is important to know that abuse may not be identifiable by just looking at someone. Emotional abuse is a form of abuse that can go unnoticed. Emotional abuse is when your partner in a relationship continually embarrasses you, insults you and/or puts you down.
Here are a few more signs to help you determine if you are in an emotionally abusive relationship:
- You are constantly being told your opinion is “wrong”
- You feel belittled
- Your partner wants access to your e-mails, FaceBook, text messages, etc.
- You feel like you always have to justify yourself
If you can relate to any of the situations listed above, you may be in an unhealthy, abusive relationship. It may be beneficial to contact a mental health professional and receive counseling or therapy to help you handle and put an end to the emotional abuse. If you are in Bergen County, New Jersey feel free to call 201-368-3700 to make an appointment with one of our own licensed therapists, counselors, psychologists or psychiatrists.
