10 ways to know if you are in an abusive relationship as posted on 360

I have been asked, more times than I can count, "How can you tell if someone is in an abusive relationship?"

Please do not take that I am an expert, but here are 10 signs to look for and if you or someone you know can say yes to 7 of these, you might want to take a good look at the relationship.

How to know if you are in an abusive relationship:

1: You are making excuses for your partner.  Behaviors that are unacceptable (such as lying, cheating, stealing, or hitting) become defendable in your eyes.

2: You slowly lose touch with your family and friends.

3: Your partner is your only means of social interaction.

4: Your partner is extremely jealous of any conversation you have with the opposite sex; might even grill you after you get home from work.

5: If you have children, you will be berated for not being good enough to be their parent.

6: Confidence you once had in yourself will be gone.

7: You will no longer be looking others in the eye when talking to them.

8: Your partner will have you convinced that no one else will want you and that you will never make it without him/her.

9: You no longer take pride in your outward appearance.

10:  Home becomes more of a prison than a sanctuary.

This breaking down of a human being takes a period of time, it does not happen overnight. Even the most experienced abuser needs time. If a controlling person can persuade someone into their lair, the victim never sees it coming, and is not aware that their own persona is gone.
