It can be really hard to tell if you are in an emotionally abusive relationship, but there are tons of warning signs of an emotionally abusive relationship that you might be overlooking. Does your boyfriend constantly insult you? Does he call you tons of names? Does he drive you crazy with tons of accusations? This could be one of the many signs of an emotionally abusive relationship that can be alarming. So girls, if you think that you are in an emotionally abusive relationship, please take a look at the signs of an emotionally abusive relationship below and see how they match up with your relationship.
1. Constant Insults
The first is constantly insulting you. Does your boyfriend keep saying that you aren't good enough? Does he say that you are worthless? Does he insult the food that you make him? Does he insult the way you clean the house? These are all signs of an emotionally abusive relationship that can be completely damaging to a person. After all, you want to hear some positive from your boyfriend right?
2. He Puts You down Often
If he is constantly putting you, as a person down, that's another sign of an emotionally abusive relationship. Putting you down could be again, calling you worthless or even just ignoring you completely, like you aren't even there. This too can be extremely damaging and can really mess someone up.
3. He Calls You Names
Does your boyfriend constantly call you names? Does he never, ever have anything nice to say about you? Does he come up with nick names that are harsh and extremely rude? This could be one of the signs of an emotionally abusive relationship. Remember girls, you don't have to take this kind of behavior, there are support groups that can pull you out of a relationship like this.
4. No Trust
Is there any trust in your relationship at all? Does he constantly question your whereabouts and what you are doing? Girls, if there is no trust at all in your relationship, that isn't really a relationship. There has to be a foundation of trust and if that isn't there, there is something wrong.
5. He Demands to Go through Your Purse
When it comes to your items and your things, there should be a level of respect and a level of privacy. Just because you two are together, doesn't give him the right to go through things like your purse or your computer. If your boyfriend is constantly demanding to go through your personal items, that is a sign of an emotionally abusive relationship.
6. He Goes through Your Phone
This is another invasion of privacy ladies. Nobody and I repeat, nobody should ever go through your phone without your permission. It's something that is personal and private. You have to have things that are just your own. For me, it's my phone as well as my computer. My partner would never go through either one of them, nor would I go through her things. If your boyfriend is demanding things like this, it's a sign of an emotionally abusive relationship.
7. He is Paranoid You Are Cheating
Remember when I mentioned the trust portion? Is your boyfriend constantly stating that you are cheating on him? Is he constantly accusing you of cheating on him without any proof? That's absolutely one of the worst signs of an emotionally abusive relationship.
8. You Believe You Are Worthless
Has your boyfriend worn you down so much that you actually believe that you are worthless? Ladies, nobody should ever, ever make you feel worthless. If your boyfriend has changed your beliefs about yourself and has worn you down enough that you have no self esteem left, that's a sign of an emotionally abusive relationship.
9. You Annoy Him Every Time You Speak
Finally ladies, the last sign of an emotionally abusive relationship is that every single time that you talk, he is annoyed. Do you even have a voice in your relationship? Does he snap when you express your opinion about things? That, alone is extremely damaging!
So girls, there you have it, all of my signs of an emotionally abusive relationship. Does any of that sound familiar? If so, there is a lot of help out there. Remember, these signs of an emotionally abusive relationship are real and happen all of the time in relationships.
