The signs of emotional abuse are sometimes difficult to detect. Unlike physical abuse, emotional abuse often takes place without those around the victim realizing it.
Worst of all is that the victim does not realize it either because the depth of the abuse tends to increase in a crescendo way, which makes it gradually justify the mistreatment that it would have. never had to accept from the start.
Emotional abuse can be more harmful than physical abuse because it can undermine how we think about ourselves.
It can cripple whatever we're meant to be: we allow it, and we turn it into something wrong that makes us define ourselves wrongly.
Emotional abuse can happen between parents and children, between husband and wife, between relatives, between co-workers and bosses, and between friends.
The abuser tends to project their words, attitudes or actions onto the victim (s) they have chosen.
This is one of his favorite strategies for evading any cognitive conflict that can cast doubt on his false self-esteem.
It is also a way of attacking that of the victim, making her dependent and creating in her a sense of distress or abandonment.
