You keep yourself in check while walking the abuse tightrope. Balancing ever so precariously over your life while juggling the glass balls that represent your children, your job, your family, your house responsibilities, etc. Ever so careful not to drop one of those balls or to knock two together in case they should crack upon doing so. One foot in front of the other. Slowly, carefully. Eyes forward but not looking too confident. You must maintain an air of submission and contentment…even though you are anything but content.
Emotional and verbal abuse hurts like hell and never really heals but it leaves no visible marks. It’s a darkness you live alone and shamefully. Emotional abuse is unrelenting. It involves but is not limited to the following:
- Your partner demeans you in front of others
- They humiliate you
- Accuse you of being too sensitive
- Treat you like a child
