“My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that. To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too… Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.”

— My only statement. My brothers’ are also online. Thank you for all your kindness, and goodbye for awhile guys. xo

Exploring Emotionally Abusive Relationships

Characteristics of an emotionally abusive relationship include:

· Using money as a means of control


· Threatening to walk out or abandon you

· Creating fear and anxiety through looks, words, threats and actions

· Destroying things (and often things you value) – either in a cold and heartless way, or in an angry fit of rage

· Using blaming, shaming, minimizing and denial to control you

· Verbally attacking and demeaning you (includes name calling, shouting at you, criticising and putting you down – especially in public)

· Attacking and putting you down in private, and acting loving and charming in public

· Minimising the abuse; acting as if you’re over-reacting and it’s “no big deal”

· Deliberately withholding approval, affirmation and affection as a means of punishment or control

The effects of living with emotional abuse include:

· A fear of being natural and spontaneous

· A loss of enthusiasm

· Insecurity related to how they coming across to others

· An inner belief that they are deeply flawed

· A loss of self-confidence and self esteem

· Growing self-doubt (so they’re afraid to make even the smallest decision, or to take on even the simplest of tasks)

· Never trusting their own judgment (as they believe that they’re likely to get it wrong, or to misunderstand or misread everything)

· Having a constant critic in their head

· Feeling they should be happier and more upbeat than they are (in order to meet the approval of others)

· Feeling they’re too sensitive, and ought to “toughen up”

· Fearing they’re going crazy, or losing their mind

· Having a tendency to live in the future (“Everything will be OK when/after ….”)

· A desire to break free, escape or run away

· A distrust and fear of entering into any close relationships again.

Einstein & Insanity

Do you feel stuck?  Have you reached a point where you feel change is necessary?  Albert Einstein was famous for many things, and the above saying is one of them.  Doing the same thing again and again, typically will produce the same results.

When you’re in a verbally abusive relationship, that “same thing” is behavior modification.  You feel that if you change something about yourself, then the abuse will stop.  But it doesn’t feel like the same thing, because you’re constantly trying new things.  “Maybe if I arrive early, she won’t be angry.”  “If the house is spotless, he’ll be in a good mood.”  “If don’t talk on the phone when he’s home, he won’t yell at me.”  “I’ll stop coaching little league - she’ll be happy if I have more time at home.”

Now, legitimately, in relationships there needs to be compromise.  So please don’t assume I’m advocating that behavior modification in and of itself is bad.  It’s not.  BUT when you’re in a verbally abusive relationship, you modify so many of your behaviors that you can render yourself unrecognizable.  You’re so hell bent on changing yourself, that you’ve failed to recognize that it’s not working.

Why doesn’t it work?  Because verbal abuse is never about the thing that the abuser is ranting about.  They are ranting, because they are in pain, and want to transfer that pain to you.  So they will do or say whatever is necessary to get you upset.  Once you’re upset - mission accomplished.  So today you spent too much on groceries, tomorrow you bought the cheap brand of laundry detergent, next day you were gone too long at the store.  You cannot successfully modify your behavior to stop the abuse, because it’s never been about what you’re doing. 

So what SHOULD you change?  Number One is your perception that you are the problem.  You are not.  You are in a relationship with a damaged individual who wants you to think that you are the problem.  But it’s not true.  You are partnered with someone who has problems.

When you know what you are in the midst of, then you have the basis to develop sound change that will be effective.

If this post resonates with you, please reblog it.  And together we can stop verbal abuse.
