    Dear Person Who Was Supposed To Be My Loving Husband.....

    For our whole relationship I have tried to give you the benefit of the doubt. You had a bad childhood, you were never appreciated, people just basically treated you like crap wherever you went but you know what pretty much everyone has gone through a rough patch. There are...

    I was verbally, physically,

    sexually, and emotionally abused as a child until I went off to college. My mother allowed myself and my brother to stay in a home where we were abused. Mothers are supposed to protect their children. She always criticized me about the way I looked and what I wore. It gave me...

    I Have Been Emotional Abused

    For years my brother and would fight all the time and he would call me all sorts of names. A couple times he even hit me and I would always end up crying. I believe all the things he called me and most of the time I just feel worthless. Nobody loves me, I'm ugly, fat and stupid...

    It Takes A Long Time To Heal

    When I was a child, I had been caned (free style---me running around with the cane chasing me, landing on random part of my body, and then getting kicked if I fell on the ground), slapped on the face, cursed in all areas of my life, threatened by violence anytime anywhere, and...

    And I think that I still am.

    Anyone who's made it through this, how can you tell. I'm freaking out, I know I'm being emotionally abused because he makes me feel so low sometimes but I don't know if that's me making him say things. He's so forceful and he lies about the simplest things. How can I even...

    I cheated on my husband,

    then i left him. He was mean, and I'm tired of repeating the details, but by mean I intend to say that he fits into many of the descriptors of an emotionally abusive person. I was extremely depressed, and stressed, and didn't know yet that it was because of my husband. I...

    Emotional And Verbal Abuse By Husband

    I have been going through this forever and I'm doing something about it like:  telling family, going for counselling, and trying to respond to it differently.  I keep a positive attitude, but it's hard when I'm confronted with the abuse.

    Not Something That I Will Never Forget !!

    Being abused emotionally is just as painful as being abused physically. Emotional abuse leaves wounds and they don't heal as fast as physical wounds heal, but there are scars that are always left behind. The scars that emotional abuse leave behind are invisible but they are there...

    I was physically mentally

    and emotionally abused by my ex boyfriend. I dream about him all the time. I can't stop dreaming about him. So I messaged him today. Why do I still care about him? Makes me disgusted. Something doesn't feel right.

    Possibly. It doesn't matter though. He doesn't respect me. He uses me emotionally when he feels alone. When he finally has what he wants elsewhere, let's say sexually, he drops me like a bad habit. By he I mean my ex. He's the cause of a lot of the sadness I experience now. We...
