Are you being abused by your partner?

If the person is interfering with your decision making all the time and gaining control over you, it’s a sign of abuse. If he/ she attacks your self esteem by humiliating you, especially in public, it’s a clear case of abuse. Abusers generally exploit using shame, guilt, threats and even violence. If the person is critical of you and uses unkind words to embarrass you in front of friends or family, you are a victim of abuse. Shouting or breaking things at home to scare you is also a sign of abuse. Does the person keep a tab on you and constantly question your activities? Well then it’s time you exposed the abuser and sought to end the bad episodes in your life.
