DASH’s early warning signs are meant to guide you in determining whether your relationship is healthy.
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.
If people you don’t really care about call you names, it may not be as upsetting.
If that person is your boyfriend or girlfriend it becomes a whole different story.
It doesn’t matter if the verbal abuse takes place in front of others or not.Then problem came, when we both go home I know to my self that I don`t love him, the boy I met before I go to the cruise but still he was saying and pushing to tell that he love me.I accepted him for reasons, and guilt but when we started the relationship again after three months when we came home and reconcile, he started those silly things, abusive behavior and insult that cause me too much pain.Constant criticism will compel the victim to “improve” him/herself.After all, if the person who loves you thinks you’re stupid then it must be true.In this series of articles, we will explore each warning sign in more depth so that you will have a better idea about what each sign means and if you need to address a problem in your relationship.Our second early warning sign of abuse is: Insults you, calls you names This may seem like an obvious warning sign.Many abusers will humiliate or embarrass their partners in public as a method of control to “prove” that only the abuser can love them.A victim of emotional abuse may start to blame themselves for the abuser’s behavior and come to believe what the abuser says.There is no need to spell them out here; you can imagine what kinds of words they use.By insulting you he/she is making you more dependent.
