Types Of Emotional Abuse

Types Of Emotional Abuse

Emotional abuse doesn't get the attention that domestic violence gets. When we talk about domestic abuse, we only focus on physical abuse and forget that emotional abuse in relationships is also domestic abuse. And because we don't focus on emotional abuse, most people in relationships don't recognize it as abuse even when they are emotionally abused.

This post talks about the different types of emotional abuse in relationships. So when you are abused emotionally in your relationship, you'll be able to spot it and kick against it immediately.

1. Lying; You know the meaning of lying right? Lying is a false statement made with the deliberate intention to deceive. If you are in a relationship where your partner lies to you a lot, your emotions become damaged. Because the more you find out the truth, the more you struggle with yourself to trust your partner, and the more you break down for having a partner who keeps the truth away from you to deceive you.

For me, there's no worse emotional abuse than lying.

2. Gaslighting; gaslighting is a form of manipulation where the victim is made to doubt his/her sanity and reality. There are different types of gaslighting. But the most common one that occurs in a relationship is when your partner tries to make you unsee something you see or perceive about them. For example, you notice your partner flirting with another person. And when you confront them, they call you 'crazy' or 'toxic' or 'jealous' or 'too sensitive' or 'insecure'.

Nothing frustrates the emotion like Gaslighting.

3. Guilt-tripping; Guilt-tripping is making someone feel guilty when they are not at fault. When someone wants you to take the blame for their own mistake, they guilt trip you. It is also a great weapon to get you to do something you don't want to do.

I heard about a relationship issue some time ago. The boyfriend wants his girlfriend to learn some sex styles he sees in porn. She doesn't want to. So the guy cheats on her a lot and blames her for it. He said he's only doing it because she has not learned the sex styles.

Guys! This is a top-tier emotional abuse.

4. Betraying; This is when someone does something that leads to your downfall or exposes you to danger. In a relationship It means, doing anything that goes against the morals and ethics of your relationship. For example, if your relationship ethics don't allow external romantic affairs. If your partner has a romantic affair outside your relationship, they have betrayed you.

Betrayal is so crazy it can trigger a traumatic reaction.

5. Domestic violence; Domestic violence is violent or aggressive behavior that occurs mostly in marriage relationships and dating relationships. Your partner physically attacking you will have a more damaging effect on your emotions than your body. And while bruises can heal easily, emotions can't.

The pain domestic violence could cause the body is not anywhere close to the pain it will cause the heart.

6. The silent treatment; The silent treatment is the intentional decision not to talk to someone after an argument or disagreement. Most times in a relationship, there isn't even an argument, your partner just starts ignoring you for no reason known to you. You ask them what's going on and they won't even say anything. This gets your mind curious and unrest.

The silent treatment is an effective way to torture someone's emotion

7. Emotional blackmail; Emotional blackmail is a form of manipulation, where people use your emotions to control you. When your partner knows how much you love them and how much they mean to you, they can use it to control you - to get you to do anything they want. For example, they can say if you want to show you care about them, you'll steal for them.

I promise you, Emotional blackmail is a powerful tool to control someone easily.

There are more types of emotional abuse but these are the most common ones in relationships.

In any relationship you find yourself, be it a love relationship or any other one. Don't allow yourself to be abused emotionally. Understand that anything your partner does to you that makes you break down emotionally is abuse. And it's not okay.
