“After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul and you learn that love doesn’t mean possession and company doesn’t mean security.

After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much, so you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. And you learn that you really can endure. That you really are strong and you really do have worth and you learn and you learn…”- Veronica A. Shoffstall.

Here is yet another small collection of emotional abuse quotes from real women:
Bruises heal, but you don’t forget words and emotions, how an abuser makes you feel about yourself.
I have always walked on eggshells waiting for his reaction to whatever situation.
I am slowly beginning to realize that I deserve better and I can do better. It’s been a struggle.
I was a happy, confident, outgoing person once.
I would rather he would hit me because at least a bruise would eventually go away.
I am in an emotionally abusive relationship but I don’t know how to leave because he needs me.
I never know what to expect. Sometimes he’s charming, sometimes he’s volatile. He’s a chronic manipulator and deceiver. Everything revolves around “his truth.”
I used to be a happy person who had plans and dreams. The emotional and verbal abuse wore me down. I felt exhausted, numb and dioriented about who I was. I stopped thinking and believing for myself. I lost hope for a better life.
Please do not stay in that kind of relationship. Your children will suffer.
He is the ultimate narcissist and uses his charisma as a weapon of choice to dissuade anyone from thinking it is him.
He isolated me from my family and the people and things I care about.
He’s constantly putting me down, labeling me, mocking or making fun of me. It’s his way of staying in control.
He makes me feel ugly, stupid, small. Like I don’t matter, won’t amount to anything, or like I’m not worthy of being loved.
No one deserves to be treated like trash, especially not by the person you love.
Get out now! Abuse only gets worse over time. No one deserves to be treated like dirt. No one.
Do not sit back and take it. Pack your things and leave.
I am in domestic violence counseling and trying to put back the pieces of my shattered life.
Abuse isn’t love.
