3. Being apart from close ones

Whether as a result of the abuser’s deception or your own attempts to avoid having a conversation about the relationship, verbally abusive partnerships sometimes result in isolation.

You might notice that over time, you start to distance yourself from your loved ones and friends, losing the network of support that is so important during difficult times.

4. Having trouble relying on people

Being harmed by a close friend or relative on a regular basis might lead to generalised mistrust of people.

This mistrust can permeate other relationships, making it challenging to be vulnerable and establish connections with new people out of concern that you won’t be injured again.

 

Your protective measures against the abuser may unintentionally keep you isolated from connections that are uplifting and encouraging.

5. Unable to decide

Persistent verbal abuse can cause you to question your judgement and ability to make decisions. Let’s say you are constantly told you are inadequate, incorrect, or responsible for the abuser’s actions.

In that instance, you might begin to doubt your own judgement and choices, which would make it more difficult for you to move decisively to make things better.

Staying with someone who verbally abuses you can have serious and widespread impacts, but acknowledging these effects is the first step in trying to make a change.
