    I Have Been Emotionally Abused I guess this

    is not something guys usually recognize or admit. I just got out of a truly terrible relationship. The girl had a lot of emotional problems, and like a fool, I thought I could fix them. It was actually really wonderful at first. She was interesting, loving, caring, and...

    I Have Been In a Too-common Way

    I feel I have been emotionally abused too, in a way that is becoming all too common these days. Last year, out of the blue, my wife said " I want a divorce". Now after 35 years together, and not having any obviously big problems, this can be pretty flattening. I tried...

    My step mom emotionally abuses me.

    I'm not sure if she understands how much it hurts, but she does it consistently. I am the bad child in my family, I have accepted that I guess. She doesn't tell me I'm stupid but she takes every chance she gets to put me down. She points out my GPA is only a B+ when her kids...

    I'd say it has affected the way I maintain

    intimate relationships in my adult life. I have severe trust issues due to certain boundaries being broken and certain obligations that were expected to be carried out, never being carried out. It's hard accepting what happened, but being able to talk about it does help.

    Found a picture of my dog today.

    He died last year. I grew up with him ever since I was 2. He reminds me of every single happy memory I had. Now I can't stop crying. Lovely.

    I have always been emotionally abused by others

    at my school, but it really took a toll on me when a new nanny came into my life. There are many situations but I'll only talk about a couple. One time she came to my school claiming to be my mother, then she emptied out my locker and brought everything home in a trash bag. She...

    He finally contacted me this morning.

    It was not a closure at all. It was still a bunch of contradictions. He had the nerve to say, "_____, I know you've been going through a lot of pain. I don't want to pursue a relationship with you. I don't want to continue on. There are no answers to give because you've done...
