Are You Being Emotionally Abused and Don't Know It?

Leave a Comment
Abuse is one of those words which I tend to think is overused. In fact, much of it is just bad character. However, emotional abuse is a different beast because it can run from "joking insults" to downright demeaning words. I want to focus on emotional abuse because psychologists all agree that the damage it does can be last a lifetime.

I encountered an emotional abuser recently, and let me tell you, he was one of the slickest I have ever seen. He was so good at it that he had me questioning myself. Fortunately, I got snapped out of it when he crossed a line.

What I then found out was he was a man with a pattern of manipulation to the point where he would get people arguing based on what he said the other said about them, and literally sit down and watch. In other words, he did it for his own amusement.

It's one thing for people to argue and fight, but quite another when you have been the puppet whose been played by a deceiver and manipulator. It should be noted that he worked on the most vulnerable women, and those who didn't fall for his games, he hated.

A week ago I would have just thought this guy was just being a jerk, but then I watched this:

The thing is I now wonder how many have fallen prey to an emotional abuser, who found amusement by causing pain, destroying relationships, and demeaning women, who was so masterful that those he didn't manipulate fed into it by questioning those who had been subjected to it?

In short, this is a most dangerous kind because they try to isolate their victims by the damage they cause. The question is what happens to those who break out of his clutches. Is he capable of just moving on to the next one, or become worse due to the rejection?
