Did you ever have a relationship with a person who was emotionally abusive?
I had a long term relationship with a person whom, when looking back I realize was emotionally abusive. It is like anything in life slow insidious and you are not aware until the late stages. When things have gone so far. I was not allowed to speak to anyone without permission, if people looked at me, I was in shit, I tried to go to work, but such drama ensued that we nearly had a physical fight. Jealousy was the order of the day. I became isolated from friends so I had no escape. I was not allowed friends, if people came to visit they were “iced” and left quickly.
I realize today, that I never got over this relationship as I have never had a permanent one since. I mean as a live in partner. Have you experienced this and how did you heal, or are you still battling?
