7 Signs You Are Being Verbally Abused And How To Walk Away From It
People don’t realise that name-calling is a way of verbal abuse because it’s usually used in a joking manner. But when those names and words start to affect your character and make you feel uncomfortable, it is because of the fact that he knows exactly what to say in order to make you feel that way. A joking way of name-calling is something that is funny to the both of you, but if it’s only funny to him only, there’s no way it isn’t abuse. Even if he says he only meant it as a joke, don’t believe him. It wouldn’t hurt if it was a joke.
2. ‘I hate you’
When said by a person we hold very dear the words, ‘I hate you’ burn deep into your skin and they echo in your mind. You think about what have you done to deserve this kind of treatment. You think about how you can make it better. What can you do to make them stop hating you? These really aren’t the things you should be asking yourself. Why don’t you just walk away? I know that it hurts, but that’s exactly what he wants you to feel. I also know that you don’t understand it, but if he’s telling you that he hates you no matter how much you tried to make him love you, there’s no other reason for him to do it rather than to mess with your mind.
