October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Abuse in a relationship isn’t always physical and knowing the signs of emotional abuse is just as important.

There aren’t always slaps and bruises.

Emotional abuse occurs without such marks, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt.2

Emotional abuse is most often verbal abuse, and although many people assume it is done at high volume, it doesn’t necessarily mean it is shouting and screaming.

Emotional abuse is just as deadly at normal volume.

And let’s make it clear, emotional abuse IS abuse.

Here are signs of emotional abuse that you should know.

1. He Makes Mean Jokes about You

Have you noticed that he constantly makes mean jokes about you in front of your friends?

You might be able to laugh them off at the time and put on a brave face, but what he’s actually doing is trying to damage your self-esteem bit by bit until you have a really low and horrible opinion of yourself.

At that point, he seems like the only thing or person in your life that is sticking by you, even though he is the one creating the problem.2

Mean jokes is one of the most obvious signs of emotional abuse.

I understand how you would feel...you are not alone. It really hurts when someone we trust abuses us emotionally which is difficult to be seen. The abuser can trick you by trying to convince that they are helping you etc

@Kranti Kanade Now that this was pointed out I feel the same way. I am a victim of emotional abuse also.

I am happy that someone cared to look into or talk about emotional abuse. I am a victim of an emotional abuse for over a decade unfortunately.
