There is a big difference between being in a bad relationship and an abusive one, especially a violent one. Some states draw the line at physical abuse and do not recognize and validate emotional and psychological abuse. In some cases, this forces the person faced with the abuse to wait until it reaches intolerable and dangerous levels. It can also be many years before the person realizes that the abuse crosses a boundary. That it is NOT ok. Being in a toxic relationship is not always straight forward. In the last episode we discussed two factors that can predispose us to these types of relationships. The biggest problem is that psychological and emotional abuse can violate boundaries by breaking them down. It conditions the person being abused to believe it is normal. It can compromise knowledge of what is right or wrong, and even withhold basic human needs. It is especially harsh when it becomes the tools of manipulation to control for personal gain. In today’s podcast I focus on one specific stage in a relationship when a person becomes aware that how they are being treated is a problem.
