The first step to prevent emotional abuse is to spot the signs. Often in a relationship you tend to overlook certain aspects of your partner that may in due course of time become unhealthy and pose to be a threat for you.
According to psychologists, the initial sign of emotional abuse might be something in the pit of the stomach, a feeling suggesting that something is going wrong in your relationship.
1. Don’t let your partner dominate you
It all starts with your partner taking decisions for you and controlling your life by using abusive techniques. There becomes a power imbalance in your relationship and your partner makes you feel like a victim more than a spouse. When you begin to notice such signals, it is better to address the situation there and then instead of prolonging it to another time. Seek help from family, friends or therapist as and when required.
