As women we need to be aware of the signs of emotional abuse.

These signs will not only help you monitor your own relationships but will also help you identify with and aid a friend who may feel stuck in an emotionally abusive relationship.

Emotional abuse often times goes unnoticed because, on the outside, the couple seems happy.

However, the truth can be very startling.

Please read these 7 clear signs of emotional abuse and share them with your friends.

1. Feeling Helpless

Most abusers make their victims feel helpless.

They trick them into thinking they are not capable of doing anything on their own or that no one else cares enough to help them.

If your significant other is making you feel helpless in your situation, you may be in an emotionally abusive relationship.

Remember, people who love you should support and lift you up.

2. Afraid of Confrontation

Does the person you love make you feel scared to confront them with problems?

Feeling afraid of confrontation is a sign of emotional abuse.

If you are constantly walking around on eggshells making sure everything is perfect in fear of setting off your mate, then something is seriously wrong.

You need to get out of that relationship as soon as possible.

3. Feel Worthless

Abusers also like to make their victims feel worthless.

An abuser will tell their victims that no one else cares and no one else loves them the way they do.

It’s all a big mind game.

If an abuser can make you feel as though you are worthless without them, then they have succeeded at breaking your spirit and having complete control.

4. Losing Contact with Friends

One way emotional abusers work is by breaking the bonds that their victims have with their friends.

If you have noticed that you are losing contact with your friends, then that’s a sign of emotional abuse.

An abuser sees friends as meddlers.

He may try to tell you that your friends are just jealous of your relationship and that they are trying to break you up.2

He may make you feel guilty for spending time with your friends to get you to stop hanging out with them so much.
