Emotional violence

Many people aren't aware that they have been living in unhealthy relationships. One of them is emotional violence. Although it's not visible as physical violence, emotional abuse also has negative impact on relationship development.

Here are the characterics when you are emotionally hurt. Let's understand them, and don't say nothing when you experience one or more of these signs.

1. Devaluate

If your spouse doesn't respect you for what you are and gives you derogatory remark, you may have experienced emotional abuse. If you let it go, you will constantly see the flaws in you and feel inferior. Gradually, you don't know yourself apart from what your spouse has set for you.

2. Question sanity

A spouse who often asks your awareness or sanity is the next characteristic of emotional violence, similar to what was done on the movie The Girl on the Train. A question like "You're crazy, huh?" will obviously hurt you, right?

Another small example is like a spouse who often blames you for every mistake. Obviously, the goal is to make you feel guilty even though it's not your fault.

3. Joke with inappropriate words

Joking is one of the things to strengthen relationships with a partner, but using words that hurt your heart, of course, is the wrong way. Therefore, try to convey your spouse that it has hurt you. Hopefully, in the future, your spouse won't repeat the mistakes again.

4. Misunderstand opinion

Every time you express your opinion, your spouse won't listen to, instead defining it and trying to overthrow your confidence. It was like when you want to take him on vacation, he will go back to questioning your arguments and instead say, "You'll never be happy." The debate is over quickly.

5. Drop reputation

A spouse who vilifies you behind have obviously hurt you emotionally. Instead, he may play a role as a victim of the crime you never did.

Living a relationship full of emotional violence is certainly not good for your health. Instead, rethink this relationship or seek psychological help to counsel along with your partner. Hope your relationship is fine, yes?
