images (1)

Psychological abuse can look like:

Humiliating or embarrassing you
Constant put-downs
Refusing to communicate
Ignoring or excluding you
Extramarital affairs
Provocative behavior with opposite sex
Use of sarcasm and unpleasant tone of voice
Unreasonable jealousy
Extreme moodiness
Mean jokes or constantly making fun of you
Saying “I love you but…”
Saying things like “If you don’t _____, I will_____”
Domination and control
Withdrawal of affection
Guilt trips
Making everything your fault
Isolating you from friends and family
Using money to control
Constant calling or texting when you are not with him/her
Threatening to commit suicide if you leave

It is important to remember is that it is absolutely not your fault. Abusers are expert manipulators with a knack for getting you to believe that the way you are being treated is your fault. These people know that everyone has insecurities, and they use those insecurities against you. Abusers can convince you that you do not deserve better treatment or that they are treating you this way to “help” you. Some abusers even act quite charming and nice in public so that others have a good impression of them. In private is a different story, which is also quite baffling.
