Yes, That’s Emotional Abuse
Emotionally abusive relationships are full of confusion and denial for victims. Delays in seeking help are influenced by cycles of abuse followed by remorse, stigma and fear about leaving, damaged self-esteem, blaming yourself, questioning your sanity, and telling yourself, “Deep down he/she really is a good person (or doesn’t mean it).” To get traction on change, examine an awareness checklist from an authority website like WomensHealth.gov. It will help you move along the decision path to reaching out for help, like the EAP.
