i am in a verbally, mentally and emotionally abusive relationship. I have been in the relationship for four years. I have three kids he has two. In the beginning it was great. It has progressively gotten worse. started to show his true colors. Calls me names and pretty much tells me I am worthless. He uses the kids against me including my own. Saying things like: he does everything for them and I do nothing. We have tried counseling and I have left twice, and twice came back. Now I am to the point of being fed up. I have laid out exactly how I feel in therapy and told him numerous times that he is an abuser, he refuses to admit it, nor does he ever apologize for when he does go psycho. It goes from him slamming doors, breaking things screaming to like nothing happened. I know for the sake of my kids I need to get out. But its like he has a hold on me. I dont want my boys to grow up and be like him. Why cant I just leave and be done with it. I know that is what I need to do.

Hello, My name is Stephanie. I am new to this group. I really don't know where to start with this post. I am trying to understand what verbal abuse is. Sometimes when you are in a relationship, you are blind to the abuse. I just need someone to talk to about it.
I read someones post stating now people now know how i feel everyday. Never realized how brave we all are,we all are alone all the time due to many reasons and dislike being alone with no one to hang with but now i see we are all brave.
