Abusive Relationships Are Tricky


This element and strong emotion runs rampant in abusive relationships.

Confusion and uncertainty pop up so often yet each time they feel so unexpected. You’re in love but not sure if you’re doing it right. You wonder why you can’t just be happy and feel peace. You ask yourself, “What am I doing wrong? How can I fix this”? But that’s the problem. You can not fix a relationship. It’s not your responsibility to make someone love you and make you feel safe.

You deserve so much more.

I’ve been there. I lived in extreme mental and emotional abuse. I was afraid and pretty sure that my fiancé would become physically violent. I was so in love with him that I forgot to love ME!

Safety and happiness is everything, y’all. No relationship is so special that your mental and emotional wellness should be at risk.

Abusive Relationships Can often Look Like…

▪︎ One person dominating the couple’s entire decision-making process

▪︎ One partner guilting the other into a particular action, decision, or belief

▪︎ A partner “loving” the other so much that they don’t allow them to spend time with anyone else

It can be hard to evaluate a relationship when you are emotionally invested in it. It’s hard to become objective.
