Save Your Sanity - Help for Toxic Relationships
Housebound With A Hijackal? 16 Forms of Emotional Domestic Violence to Recognize NOW!
During the self-isolating shutdown, domestic violence has increased greatly. Hopefully, that will draw attention to the many people who need to be safer than they are.
Unfortunately, the women and men who are being emotionally abused--experiencing emotional domestic violence--will once again go unnoticed. A BIG PROBLEM!
Emotional domestic abuse on its own doesn't come with visible choke marks, bruises, casts, contusions, and black eyes. It comes with DEEP, LONG-LASTING EMOTIONAL SCARS! Fortunately, those can be helped to heal.
It's been awhile since I've spoken about the many facets of emotional abuse. You need to keep them clearly in view. You need to step back from your relationship and recognize what's actually happening. Sometimes, you're so worn down by the tearing down and putting down that comes your way from a #Hijackal, that you can hardly face the enormity of it.
Before you listen to this episode, I invite you to be in a place where you can have some time after listening to process your feelings. Take a bottle of water and sit down with your journal, and think about:
- How many of these forms of emotional abuse are you experiencing?
- How long have you been experiencing these?
- If it is your partner who behaves this way, did you have a parent who was also emotionally abusive?
- Have you become so used to the abuse that you recognize now that you need help?
- Do you make excuses for the #Hijackal's behavior?
- Do you rationalize or justify the emotional abuse?
Very important questions to ponder, and spend some time answering. I know you're tired, probably emotionally exhausted. That's just how a #Hijackal wants you to be. Then, your thinking may be cloudy and the Hijackal will happily prey on your self-esteem and self-confidence.
