What are some signs of emotional abuse?


I feel like my mom might be emotionally abusive, but I want to hear what a few signs of an emotionally abusive person is/ what they would say or do. I don’t want to sound like a typical teenager, it’s just I have a horrible relationship with her and I would like to know whether or not everything is in my head.

Emotional abuse is defined as anything that psychologically harms a person. A couple signs of emotional abuse is that they're always excusing or denying your feelings for granted, and instead acting like they're the victim themselves. Emotional abuse can also be a form of simply horrible words or insults meant to hurt you. A tumblr post: http://musedbymusic.tumblr.com/post/126485990444/grey-violet-thorin-and-twerkteam-emotional
