Emotional abuse creeps into a relationship bit by bit...now a bad word, a curse, or a negative comment done in public, and then it escalates into full-blown abuse. As long as the relationship has to develop and foster both sides growth and learning, one side can feel threatened by the other person's development...and begins to control it by using abuse.
Abuse is the face of fear: fear of being left behind, or feeling "put upon" by a brighter, faster partner, by a more well put together person besides you. Whatever the fear, abuse is the worst response a person can use, because it ends up destroying any trace of respect or love.
And, being so common and so tolerated by society, abuse is part of many relationships...The end result is a person feeling diminished, controlled and degraded by the same person that promised to love and respect her.
