So I was generally a happy person until a year ago. When its good its really good but when its bad totally disaster. My friends all tell me im different because I used to be happy calm and not irritated. Just so u know shes a social worker and she yells at parents.You might be a nerd, a jock, a popular and be proud about it.Having others call you names might roll right off you.Also, she wanted to know where I am and what im doing all the time . To add on, She would break things and also tells my mom don’t love me.And when im doing something or spending time with family or others she would break up with me or yell at me. When I changed all my time for her she would instead spend her time on video games and go out. And she would also yell at her mom like it was the end of the world.Yes, your partner can have his/her own opinions, but when they question your ideas to the point of insult or humiliation, it becomes emotional abuse.It doesn’t matter if the verbal abuse takes place in front of others or not.An abusive partner will tell you that no one else will love you because you are fat, ugly, stupid – pick a word.Some partners may use the most disgusting references in order to crush your self esteem.
