It is not really talked about in the dating world, but it still exists. Psychological Abuse can happen to anyone, if they are not aware of it. It is when your partner abandons you emotionally and treats you like a second class citizen. For those of you who have experienced that, I am sorry. But, the good news is there are ways to help yourself. Many relationships go bad because of this widespread epidemic.

Psychological Abuse in Relationships

Psychological abuse happens when someone is constantly berated, or ignored by the abuser, in an attempt to make the abuser feel powerful. You will feel like you need them and you will continue to go back to them in order to recreate the terrible feelings they are giving you. Unfortunately, this problem is everywhere. People all over the planet suffer from the psychological torment that their supposed loved one puts them through.

Things start off great when you begin the relationship, but as time slowly moves on, you realize that they are not the person you thought they were. I had the privilege to experience that first hand. I met this girl that was simply amazing, but she turned out to be an abuser. It was awful because she would constantly belittle me by telling me that I should change who I am to fit her idea of a man. The terrible part is you feel like you can’t escape because you have put so much of your heart into it.

It is literally one of the saddest things someone can experience in life. Fortunately, there are ways to escape. Realizing that you are not ugly, or worthless is the first step to getting out of it. Talk to family and trusted friends about the psychological abuse. There are always people that love you no matter what. If I had known that, I probably would have saved myself a lot of pain and torment.

Being ignored by someone you love is terrible and not only destroys relationships, but it destroys self-confidence and your self-image. If you ever meet someone who has this trap set for you, please do not fall into it.

Always remind yourself that you are beautiful and worthy of love. If you do that, then you will attract only healthy, productive relationships into your life. Life is about finding love and if you are being hurt by the person you love, (physically, or emotionally) just know that there is someone out there for you that will love you just for who you are.
