We all know that there is a lot of information available in the Internet about emotional abuse. What it is, how to recognize it, and ways to find help…
But despite the accessibility of that information, there is a large gap regarding what measures you can take to transform your situation on your own. Imagine that you are too far from a counseling center, or too poor to afford the help, or too scared of what might happen if you were to move out of the house and take steps concerning trusting someone else with your situation.
Is there anything that you can do? YES!
Self-Healing After Abuse?
This process can be described as recovering your own personal power, and growing up out of abuse. Identifying your abuser and recognizing that nothing you did or did not do was the reason they acted the way they did, is an extremely important first step towards healing. And if it is still going on in the present, remember that “trying harder” will not stop an emotionally abusive person’s behavior. You are not the problem!
If you feel safe enough, you can confront them with the truth and see if they are ready to acknowledge their problem. If you don’t feel safe, then remove yourself from the situation –perhaps permanently.
What are the steps you can take towards freeing yourself from an emotionally abusive relationship, other than to attempt to reach professional help? According to the psychology of relationship violence, there are a number of important learning steps for freeing yourself from emotional abuse…
The first one is to remember what you already know:
YOU ARE AN IMPORTANT, UNIQUE HUMAN BEING, AND YOU NEVER GAVE AWAY YOUR RIGHT TO RESPECT AND APPRECIATION! THIS IS YOUR BIRTH RIGHT, AND NOBODY CAN TAKE THIS RIGHT AWAY FROM YOU, WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT!
