Types of Domestic Violence
Shame - “Emotional abusers often blame others for their troubles and belittle others in public and in front of others.”
Isolated - “You may feel restricted as the other party tracks your whereabouts or demands you be home at certain times.” Or perhaps you want to begin isolating yourself to avoid conflicts your partner creates.
Jealous - “An emotional cheater may do something as bold as cheat or simply compare you negatively to others in ways that leave you feeling off-balance and jealous.”
Helpless - “Making decisions that affect you without consulting you, or taking away your control of your physical environment or body.”
Crazy - If you are feeling crazy, pay attention to your partner’s communications. Emotional abusers often use gaslighting, blatantly telling you something that is false, and turning positives into negatives (i.e., ‘What happened to you? You used to be so smart?’) to throw you off balance.”
