The act of controlling someone else emotionally by criticizing, humiliating, shaming, blaming, or otherwise controlling them is referred to as emotional abuse. Emotional or mental abuse can occur in any relationship, including relationships with colleagues, relatives, and neighbors, although being more prevalent in dating and married partnerships. It can also encompass non-physical actions including intimidation, harassment, incessant monitoring, excessive calling, threats, insults, and degradation.
Some examples of emotional abuse are:
Prohibiting what you do, who you see, and what you wear
Harming you if you disagree with them
Shifting blame to you
If you feel you are in an unsafe or mentally draining relationship, take care of yourself first.
