Good question. It's a little tricky to determine if you have been emotionally abused. Think of how whoever you think has abused you has treated you. Have they been shifting their moods? Blame you? Threaten you, but no action? Then ask yourself, by how they communicate with you. If you feel frustrated, upset, stressed? Another thing to jot down is how your weeks are. Any accomplishments? Consider asking a friend on how you've been treated and acting.
That one's a tough question to ask. Since I don't know your situation as it is right now, I would suggest that you call a hotline and discuss it with them. I did visit a website and got this list of some things that may help you out though; - Calls you names, bullies you or continually criticizes you - Does not trust you and acts jealous or possessive - Is always right and puts you down in a way that makes you doubt yourself - Isolates you from family or friends - “Takes over” your friendships - Monitors where you go, who you call and who you spend time with - Does not want you to work - Controls finances or refuses to share bank information or money - Punishes you by withholding affection or giving you the “silent treatment” - Expects you to ask permission for all you spend or do - Threatens to hurt you, the children, your family, or your pets - Humiliates or embarrasses you in front of others - Makes you feel controlled, isolated, intimidated, or exhausted Hopefully this helps a little bit. I'm always here and willing to listen if you need some more one-on-one advice. c:
When you feel insecure being around that someone in particular, you even shake or don't know what to say or do.
If someone is using phrases like "c'mon, you did it before, why not now" or constant criticism,blaming, and continuously asking for things or refusing to accept his/hers faults,well that's emotion abuse.
