Am I being abused?

Fearless -love -twitter

Consider these questions.....
  • Is your partner excessively jealous and possessive?
  • Are they charming one minute and abusive the next?  sudden changes of mood - like Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde?
  • Do they stop you from speaking to your family and friends? Do you feel isolated?
  • Do they constantly criticizing you and putting you down in public?
  • Does your partner embarrass you, often in front of family and friends, so that you are seen in a bad light?
  • Does your partner play mind games and make you unsure of your own judgment?
  • Do they tell you you're useless and couldn't cope without them?
  • Do they control your money?
  • Does your partner tell you what to wear, who to see, where to go, what to think?
  • Does your partner pressure you to have sex when you don't want to?
  • Are you starting to walk on eggshells to avoid making them angry?
  • Does they monitor your movements? Or check up on you via your email, Facebook, Twitter or by looking at your text messages?
  • Do they use anger and intimidation to frighten you and make you comply with demands?
  • Has your partner ever threatened you, or intimidated you by using violent language or smashing up the furniture?
  • Are you forced to alter your behaviour because you are frightened of your partner's reaction?
  • Are you blamed for their behaviour e.g. they say you were "asking for it" or deserved the abuse?
  • Does your partner threaten to 'out' your sexual orientation or gender identity?
