Domestic violence can now be apart of your history. Whoo-hoo! The emotional abuse; however, will probably continue to affect you long after you have left your partner. It is important to understand what emotional abuse really is in domestic violence, in order to understand how to really overcome it.
Emotional abuse is any comment or judgement made upon you that makes you question who you are, and what you are thinking. Emotional abuse is one power dynamic the abuser will use on you, blindsiding you. Eventually you begin to really believe the comments, or gestures, and it can have a drastic effect on your mentality. I have been there too, and it does not feel very good. :(
Emotional abuse or psychological abuse are humiliating to anyone subjected to them, and now that you are seperated from the source which provided that abuse it may be time to allow for healing. When talking to others who are supportive about the abuse, it can be uncomfortable, and put your recovery on hold, and you sure deserve better than that.
