We all have people surrounding us which make us feel very special; others inspire us to be better or achieve our goals. Although some turn into a nightmare and put you down constantly.
Those some people that have the necessity to make one feel bad and humiliated are fighting their very own self image. The only method they can enhance their ego is by putting down someone else if the putdowns are extreme or subtle.
Understand they are the people with an issue. I say this because their put downs can in fact get you convinced that something is wrong with you. But, anyone who is meant to look after you in a wholesome manner wouldn't normally hurt you intentionally. Neither, would a confident person waste their energy and time attempting to make someone feel bad.
The most sensible thing that can be done for yourself would be to stop the abuser dead on his tracks and curb your interaction with her or him. In case you are coping with this person then it could be good to go away from her or him.
The facts are that emotional abuse can destroy an individual. It'll tear your confidence over time until; you haven't any self-confidence left. Don't let anyone that you experienced do this for you.
Know you are special is likely to way and that you deserve to be around individuals who really like and respect you.
