    I started bawling at the 11:00 mark. This literally is my life right now. Whenever he decides to be nice again, and I’m not responding in a positive way (because I’m still pissed/hurt) he goes to threatening all the stuff he won’t do anymore (not pay rent, be nice, etc). It’s just hard to know sometimes if just a temporary storm or just who he is.

      @Shaida Nasreen If you can, leave for the kids sake.They may become abusers themselves, or just be very psychologically damaged.I am old and on disability and so I can't leave , but maybe there is still hope for you. I know it's hard after 20 years.That is how long I have been with my verbal abuser.My first husband beat me and I left him with a newborn and put myself through school.I wish I could leave this one too. Emotional and verbal abuse is just as bad as physical and also should be against the law.

    Number 14: Talking over you, especially loudly. He won't let you get a word in edgewise.

      Yes, this one too! I agree. I finally got to the point where I asked myself why I was even bothering to say anything at all…like anything. Because every time I opened my mouth he would talk over me. And the second point is also true from my experience. You’re listening for an hour and can barely get a sentence in. After years and years of that it takes a huge toll on you and you begin to really see that they are not interested in anything you say and that you have no value to them.

    You described my relationship. I can’t believe I was blind to this abuse for so long.
    You’re right about getting physically sick because I’m currently having a ton of health issues. I was a healthy person before him. Toxic people can tear you down. I’m happy to start my journey to love myself and to distance myself from him.

    This is painful to accept in myself. I relate to the forgetting/denial. But I don't consciously forget or deny. I genuinely don't remember large portions of full-fledged conversations I have had with my ex. I also don't consciously create chaos but I still do it. I need healing from these behaviors. I never realized I was this bad

    Hearing this I felt my body tightening up and sick. Almost from the beginning of our marriage he would say "for such an intelligent woman you're so stupid" which made me feel that I can't do anything or calling me "Puchi" cuz I gained weight. I was diagnosed with RA three years ago and he said it's in your head.

    Wow this is probably the most thorough and spot on video I've ever seen on this subject. It describes my ex's behaviour exactly. Anyone reading this who is still in this kind of relationship please find the strength to leave. It doesn't get better, it only escalates to worse and worse abuse. I think the author of the book is obviously very intelligent and has a deep understanding of this issue, however, I disagree that these kinds of people can "change". Most of them cannot even acknowledge that THEY have a problem even if multiple ex partners tell them they same thing or friends or family members agree with you. In all honesty it is NOT worth trying to change them or help them. You're just pouring all your love, kindness, patience and empathy into a deep, dark abyss. They will destroy you for sticking around and trying to save them.

    I definitely tense up when he’s around. I’ve been called every name you can think of. If I want to go out with my friends, he loses his mind. I’ve found it easier to just not saying anything at all. I’m planning to leave but I’m terrified of what he’ll do to me. I’ve been physically abused in another relationship but verbal abuse is awful as well.

  • Coral Uru

    Such a great video. I will never forget the day I realized my ex was abusive- I work for a charity and he said “me and my hens clucking on our meetings thinking we are going to change the world”. I was never so hurt - I’ve always felt so good about what I do and it crushed me. It was that day that opened my eyes and I saw all the other things in this list, of which he did 10 of them...I can’t believe I missed it for so long (11 years). So grateful for videos like this that helped me unpack all that was going on. I had trauma bond and still am working on it but these videos are essential to help people see when they are in an abusive situation. Thank you for sharing your gifts with us.

      Coral Uru Thank you so much for sharing. It’s common for us to be blind to these behaviors. We have been conditioned that way and we also desperately want to give the benefit of the doubt. Stay strong and keep doing the things that you love and believe it 💕

  • Ketra Thompson Hypnosis

    For those who have expressed concern about having these behaviors yourself. Here is the video I did about reactive abuse. It’s normal to become reactive and take on similar behaviors as the emotional abuser as a self-protection tactic.

    Omg I can understand everything she’s saying! I love my man but every time he drinks he’s very emotionally abusive and I feel crazy cause he some how turns it around on me like it’s my fault and everything I say/do is wrong. I feel helpless, like I’m never good enough. He’s just good at making people feel bad

      Cayla Bellard I’m sorry you are dealing with this. It’s not because of alcohol, it’s likely because of his fear of intimacy or closeness and his belief that you are an extension of him and not entitled to see anything differently than he does .

I've said this for yearsssss I cant do anything cause of the kids etc, easier to stay then energy to leave. I get it, trust me but when you realize more and more you will start to move away, trust yourself and lean on others for validation. Start by self love and learn how to love yourself again, your worth it, you are...

    • NoPCsHere
      NoPCsHere 6 months ago +1

      Some people believe there is no such thing. They think abuse is ONLY physical or sexual. Unfortunately the WORDS and ACTS of verbal/emotional abusers leave scars that damage a LOT more than a fist. It took me MANY years to realize that my former wife and her mother & father are/were narcissists and had been abusing me verbally, emotionally and financially for most of our marriage. It was beginning to show in my stepdaughter as well, who began acting like her mother and grandmother. In order to save my own sanity, I had to leave that marriage.

      Telling me it doesn't matter if I die or my adult child. Calling dinner pig slop. Stop your f'ing crying.. too many and now I'm exactly where he wants me in a wheelchair, stuck and no place to go!! I am so ashamed to say I married him 3 times and the fist to my face was the final bullet he used. Evil but more importantly I worry for our grown children... Damages we both may have caused...

    • Kailani
      Kailani Year ago +3

      Very true statement. Individuals generally learn these unhealthy behaviors through life's experiences. But its a fine line... I spent 20 years in a toxic/abusive marriage. I too was abused as a child as was my ex. I stayed without realizing it, because I felt sorry about his own predicament, but never thinking twice about my own childhood or the treatment from him. I blamed myself for all of it. It's been a couple years now, im finally starting to see parts of me and my worth in this world. Have hope, keep trying never give up. Network, watch videos such as these, keep friends and family in the forefront. I didn't have a family at age 15, you make your own family. May peace and love be your guiding light.

      Yes you are right. I only discovered what emotional abuse was a few years ago thanks to a woman I met. I didn't know that I was in an abusive relationship until she said that she was worried about me after witnessing my partner. I had no idea what she was worried about because to me it was normal. I went on to discover that both my parents were abusive and so because I grew up like this I saw nothing wrong. I am so grateful to her but now I am trying to discover who I am because I was always who other people wanted me to be.

    This whole video is my 17 year marriage to a "T". I was planning on getting out when my youngest turns 18 and is out of high school, well that's 7 years away. I'm planning on getting out sooner. I feel so much more powerful now than I did the other two times I left. I am older, wiser, but more exhausted. The exhaustion is ok though, I won't have the energy to care about his begging, pleading, and crying to come back. I'm getting the heck out really soon. Thank you for making these videos to help us victims of psychos realize that we aren't crazy.

    • Ketra Thompson Hypnosis

      You are NOT crazy! You are much stronger than you know. The thing about fear is that the fear itself is worse than taking action on that thing you are afraid of. Once you do it can become incredibly empowering! Your body and mind can finally heal when it’s not steeped in constant toxicity 💗

    I do NOT want to label this situation as being verbally abusive. That's why I watched this video. I have been researching for hours every day for hours about verbal abuse. I think I'm being verbally abused by my mom. Why I found out when I'm working on moving out? I have no idea. But looking back my mom is a good mom until she's discouraged. And in the past she's been discouraged about different things in different times. She's healed from the problem, but everything that has been said or done in these steps, this is what she's said or done over the years. And now I'm starting to believe it was and is verbal abuse.

    • Ketra Thompson Hypnosis
      Ketra Thompson Hypnosis  Year ago

      It’s hard to accept this reality about a parent. Try to remember that our parents grew up internalizing messages that they then pass on to you. The best thing you can do is to create respectful boundaries with her and learn to protect your own emotional well being. Boundaries are hard at first but worth it.

    The short, concise format is awesome and much needed on youtube. The problem with so many of the videos on this topic as they are so long, wordy, drawn out, and we have to wait for all of the important points. This is what people who are suffering through these things need to hear, quick concise to the point it helps deliver a message to a scrambled brain. Nice job.

      It can certainly come from a man or a woman. I’m Sorry you are dealing with this. Please know that men aren’t supposed to be tough. All humans have feelings and needs. It’s how we process those feelings and needs and how we express them that makes us loving or destructive. Boundaries are a good place to start to protect our mental health. Best of luck to you!

    Thank you for this video. I made the mistake of sending it to him and explaining a few points. Of course, he outright denied or minimised everything. On a daily basis, my husband says things like if only you had a mute button OR are you still talking, omg! Two small examples, there are more. How do you cope when he is also like this to the children? I'm sad that this is all they'll ever have and know as far as a father goes.

    • Ketra Thompson Hypnosis

      @Panda Bear I’m glad he agreed to get some help. Finding someone who does EMDR therapy is a good place to start. Also a CSAT therapist has some specialized training in helping people become accountable and change behavior patterns.

      @Ketra Thompson Hypnosis Thank you for your reply. It does feel toxic. I can find a way to cope but it's hurtful to the children. After watching your video for a second time, he said he would see someone. We'll see how true that will hold over the coming months. Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to make this video. x

    • Ketra Thompson Hypnosis
      Ketra Thompson Hypnosis  6 months ago +1

      I’m so sorry you are going through this. You can’t simply cope. You have to start j Bering in your own healing. So you can regain the strength needed to hold firm boundaries or leave. It’s toxic to stay where the other person has no awareness of the damage they are doing.

    This is my father, my mom has been in this for 18+ years, and she doesnt want to do anything concrete about it but I've had enough. He's not just verbally abusive, he's emotionally and physically abusive as well, and may have even been slightly sexually abusive...there's no one i can talk to about this and his sister always takes his side. Is there anyway I can consult you to talk about what I can/should do and whether certain things qualify as abuse?

    • Ketra Thompson Hypnosis
      Ketra Thompson Hypnosis  Year ago +2

      I’m so sorry to hear about that. I would recommend reading one of the books that Don Hennessy has written or one by Patricia Evens called controlling people. All you can do is try to help you mother regain her confidence and get some clarity. It can be so hard to watch those we love continue to be stuck like this.

    My ex...when I was married to him used to tell me about all his sex activity before he was with me...it hurt and it was almost he was comparing me with something he wanted in me...NOT. Telling me he was going to go to Canada and find a prostitute.....if I didn’t want to have sex at the time. Tell me what friends I could hang with...and so much more....woke up after 29 years. I always thought and prayed he would change...nope.

  • Samantha Davis

    I won't lie, the most infuriating thing is when they pretend that what they are doing to you is actually what you are doing to them. I remember waking up with my left eye socket completely swollen shut and swollen from where he had grabbed me by the hair and slammed my face into the kitchen island counter the night before, and asking him what happened because I was completely discombobulated, and he responded with, "You just got what you deserved for ripping out my beard" when in actuality, I blindly grabbed at anything to get him to let go of my newly smashed skull and unfortunately it was his beard. Several hours later, my face was black and blue on top of even more dramatic swelling and he started tearing up staring at me because he said he felt really guilty for what he had done, so I ended up comforting him. I bring up his physical abuse because honestly I've never been in a relationship that wasn't verbal and emotional abuse and frankly, I'm used to it, but I did not expect things to get as bad as they have. While not all verbal abusers will end up becoming physically abusive as well, I think the risk is too high and we should all assume the verbal abuser will become violent as well and that it is only a matter of time before he does. Stay safe. We can protect each other. Don't wait for it to get worse before you decide to make it better (by leaving). Much love and hope to anyone out there reading this.

    • Ketra Thompson Hypnosis

      Thank you so much for sharing your story. You’re right, not all are physically abusive but it is a very real danger. Abuse in any form crushes the spirit. I hope you are receiving all the help and support you need to heal. You have shared so much brave insight here.
      The main reason I love hypnotherapy is that it helps us get to the root cause of why we keep ending up in the same kind of relationships. Although much of it is because of their deception in the beginning their are things our subconscious mind feels are normal and overlooks. 💛

  • Melissa Joy Artistry

    I am a psych major & have also spent years studying abuse...while being in a relationship that I still cannot pinpoint. He does some things on that list, but only a few. I'm the one who has started nitpicking bc he'll say things very cold out of nowhere, then will deny he did. There's no way to move forward if he truly can't see he does shitty things & if his apologies are just placating. He recently said to me he has to talk to me differently than everyone else bc I'll get hurt. He says it in a way that's SO contemptuous instead of the understanding tone he has when he initially says it. It's not right. I subscribed bc I've never heard ANYONE go into such great detail so concisely but also state to "follow your gut". Great video

    im dealing with what feels like ptsd from dealing with this for 3 or 4 months, so my heart goes out to all the women who feel trapped in marriages and are being guilted into making it work, even more so if they have children who have been in these situations for years!
    I also want to speak as a child of divorce to the woman worried about her children. LEAVE it might be hard, split custody my father wasn't even as abusive outwardly towards my mother but his treatment of her was unacceptable, the kids will be ok. in my late 20s and i finally was able to say, "its ok mom he was mean, so mean i dont know how you ever put up with it" anyway we are all better than ever now. i still have healthy boundaries and expectations and good relationships with both my parents and my siblings are all successful and in beautiful relationships! time heals all and you are so vital your kids need to see you loved and happy above all.

      I’m so sorry you are going through this. We are not able to heal in a toxic environment very easily. It’s best to start making a plan to become independent. You have already survived so much. You can survive and become strong without an intimate partner. Maybe you can build an outside support system. We only have one life. Please don’t marry someone who isn’t willing to give you the respect you deserve. You can do way more than you realize in life 💗

If it were my son I would try to shine some light but I would also be sure to tell him that I loved him no matter what and that I was always there if he needed someone. Best of luck!

Also, I can spot this manipulative crap 5 miles out so thanks for that I guess. The more you know.
    To anyone going through this...forgive yourself and self-love. Focus on yourself and your loved ones (non-manipulative ones). Give yourself time to heal and find someone safe to talk to. They will be your life vest while you learn to swim again. Even if you feel COMPLETELY isolated and alone, you're not. Hang onto that and make each day better than the day before.

And it especially feels like a slap in the face that it’s reinforced by that person’s friends there and you know that no one would even believe you…plus you don’t want to do or say anything to make them look bad to their friends…so it’s like a double whammy.

    How come this video´s not called "Is my spouse verbally abusive"? I´m not in an abusive relationship, but I do recognize several of these examples from my parents and other close friends. Compared to physical abuse I think this is a type of abuse that many men experience as well. And I also guess that you kind find this type of abusive in same sex relationships. Feels like an important subject that I think both men and women could learn from.

    • Ketra Thompson Hypnosis
      Ketra Thompson Hypnosis  Year ago

      It does happen in both women and men. My audience is primarily women in destructive relationship so that’s the angle of abuse I take in my videos. But the concept can be applied both ways. Or in Same sex relationships. Early childhood trauma is at the heart of the issue and that can happen to anyone.

      Don’t beat yourself up about this. People who are emotionally destructive are also manipulative and confuse the brain with trauma bonding (intermittent love and rejection). Nobody can predict these things but we can heal and we can learn what the red flags are so we don’t get into the same situation again. I wish you all the best!

    My borderline husband is verbally and emotionally abusive, but admits it.I even tell him when I am recording his abuse, but he can't stop himself, even when he knows it is going on a voice recorder.I moved into my own cottage on our property and avoid him as much as I possibly can.I am feeling more peacful for the first time in 20 years, but it has taken 7 months.

      I’m so sorry you are dealing with this. It’s exhausting. I help so many women find internal freedom from this in my hypnotherapy practice. It can feel so defeating and I hope you have all the support you need to make the best choices for you and your kids. 💛

    Yeah definetly from his childhood...when we met and then got married I saw none of this with verbal abuse. It happens everyday now. I'm on a roller coaster ride. Today I'm staying in bed as the pain is so deep I need to heal.

      Any amount of time living like this sucks for sure! Sounds like it’s time for some boundaries and consequences.
      That usually comes easer with some deep inner confidence work. I hope you have all the support you need.

    I have a question. I wrote down if they or I did any of the actions. They, to me, exhibited 11/13 in total consistently... but I saw that I commited 3/13 that I could isolate, which ofcourse is not objective since I cannot see myself. Is this normal? Obviously I need to make sure these never happen in the future... but... am I abusive too?

    • Ketra Thompson Hypnosis
      Ketra Thompson Hypnosis  Month ago

      It’s very common for the victim to create coping mechanisms to protect themselves that wouldn’t be present in a healthy relationship.
      It doesn’t mean you are abusive even though some coping mechanisms can be. It means you are having a normal reaction to abnormal behavior.
      The best thing you can do is work on healing the damage done to you and caring well for yourself. I hope you have all the support you need.

    I was nothing like this but since dealing with my husband and his family I seem to have turned into them because I didn’t know how to just get up and divorce the whole damn family. Now I’m still stuck and it has made me suicidal. But I’m almost ready to leave…..😥

    When I was little my dad was a mentally verbals abuse to me and my mom because he had health problems , he was on drugs and he always be telling my mom what to do like a child. He always yelled in my face and my moms face. I was scared of him that he would hit me and my mom but he never did. He didn't give me a good childhood at all. My dad wasn't the best father because he only cared about doings drugs and he also didn't care about his health. He also almost cheated on my mom too. Me and my dad always have fights. I had thoughts of hurting myself cause I couldn't take the pain I was going through all these years. I thought I was never gonna survive from all the abuse emotional truamas. I was 17 when I lost my dad in 2017 from Kidney failure. His death made me go berserk and I started getting into more depression, stress, axienty attacks. I was never happy and still today I still can't get over of him being gone I still got mix feelings for him.

    • Ketra Thompson Hypnosis

      I’m so sorry you had to go through that. These kinds of experiences get lodged in our subconscious mind and create lopping patterns that we get mentally stuck in. Hypnotherapy is in my opinion the fastest most effective way to rewire those thought pattern so you can live the life you want. Reach out to your local medical provider for immediate help with overwhelming feelings. Also, I hope you consider a good trauma based therapist that does EMDR or a hypnotherapist who is familiar with trauma. I wish you all the best.

    Why do we fall for these kinds of partners? Unfortunately I realized he is this way far too late. I’ve been very sick for several years with no diagnosis until about 5 years ago. It’s been over twenty years of being tested for everything under the sun? Finally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia after all these years of being abused. Don’t wait thirty years to get out, just do it before it’s too late for you. Please! 😢

      @Susan Austin yes soo true! I keep thinking what a waste to just throw all that time away but then I immediately realize that the time I have left needs to be happy loving & mostly safe for me. It’s sad to know that I can leave so easily now? I do hope you have a safe & loving life from here on out as well?

      So true, I think its what we grew up with to some extent & feeling like we can "fix" them! After 30+ years I know I should have been stronger.... need to get out 😔

    • Ketra Thompson Hypnosis
      Ketra Thompson Hypnosis  Year ago +1

      I’m so sorry you had to deal with that. It’s never too late to get away and create a life that heals. I truly believe these kinds of people are deceptive and sell us on a fantasy. I also believe that many times we are conditioned to always be the nice one or to blame ourselves and because we don’t grow up learning boundaries we don’t recognize when someone has crossed the line. Or we think this is love because of how a parent treated us. But regardless of why we get into them, we can get out and heal. 💗

    My man just hurt my feelings so badly because I was gone for an hour extra and I didn’t answer his calls. He called me a liar and a cheater over and over again and says things like, “half fun f*cking other guys,” then when I started sobbing in the bathroom he goes “why are you crying? Stop crying it’s so annoying.” I’m so hurt and can’t stop crying. I wish I had someone to talk to but I feel so ashamed to go to my friends and family. I know I deserve better. I wish I never met him. This is after almost 7 years...

    I'm scared to leave because he will get more mad but as well I keep coming to terms with being on my own while he's out and then I have nightmares about something bad happening to him (my mum died when I was 14 and I imagine him how I saw her when she was dead) and I just start bawling Im still in love with him how he used to be and I need to just let go.

    • Ketra Thompson Hypnosis
      Ketra Thompson Hypnosis  Year ago

      I’m so sorry. How he used to be was never who he really is. The very best thing you can do is make a silent plan about where to go and what you really want in life and start moving toward the goal of leaving. If you ever feel threatened or scared be sure to report it to police there is a record of it. I hope you are able to process some of the trauma that keeps you feeling fearful. 💗

Im a fighter i cant and wont let him get away with treating me horrible on the down low and in texts messages. Im stuck and never got out when i should have . I dont like anything about him. I never feel good. I cant heal . Theres no resolution ever. No im so sorry, never hear thank you , only demands insults and wanting sex constantly.

      Ketra Thompson Hypnosis  Year ago +3

      That’s really common. People learn there is no point to speaking if you are going to be turned against or treated with criticism. It’s a coping mechanism but if you keep betraying your own self expression it will eat you up and can eventually cause illness. I hope you are able to get free.

    My husband is very unstable with his mood. Some small things makes him angry. And it's always hot and cold. His behaviour. After shouting at me he doesn't speak to me anymore. He tells me I am stupid, I don't have anything in my had, although it might be true, I was always insecure about myself. I accepted him as he was. He has some issues with his anger. And his masculinity too. I accepted that. Partnership in marriage is more important. But, my health issues are declining, especially tachycardia and anxiety. But, I have no choice. When I go somewhere, I feel full of energy, but when I back home, my physical and mental energy is completely drained. It's exhausting.

      I’m so sorry you are dealing with this. It’s extremely common to have major health issues if you are married to an emotional abuser. It’s hard to fully realize the depth of the damage but once you are free from it, your whole world may open up. It more damaging than most of us realize. I wish you the very best and I hope you are able to find emotional freedom.

    I have watched many videos on here with various therapists and I really like the way you describe and talk in your video, the confidence that you portray in your speaking is great to listen too. I wish I could afford your one-on-one video conferencing and I hope to be inquiring with you somewhat soon. I do have a question, Do you accept a person just for a few visits only? The situation I am in is driving me crazy being told I am always wrong in everything I say and being critical. Just making the comment "You didn't seem very talkative last night" turned into a 4-hour argument, as I was accusing and making asummtions being critical saying she was a bad person. I need some advice and direction in how to fix myself. I hope to be in touch soon.

      I’m so sorry you are dealing with that. I don’t do single sessions. I usually recommend at least 5 one-on-one sessions but it really depends on a few factors. I would be happy to go over all the options in a consultation call when you are ready. I hope you have all the support you need to overcome this situation.
