The Gift of Goodbye –Getting Free From An Abusive Relationship
Whether you've dealt with emotional abuse, an abusive husband, or a verbally abusive relationship all abusive is toxic. You should never become comfortable in any type of abusive relationship.
People often ask, should they stay in an ABUSIVE relationship....and does God want them to stay in an abusive relationship? Here's my response.
The bible says, (2 Timothy 3:1-5) "...in the last days people will be lovers of themselves…Abusive... having the form of godliness but denying its power. Have NOTHING to do with such people.
It's in the bible...not my words. The bible says have nothing to do with abusive people. Read 2 Timothy 3:1-5
I discuss four types of relationship abuse in my book, "Addicted To Pain".
Excerpt from “Addicted To Pain” Book:
Never minimize abuse. Abuse does not have to be physical; your partner doesn’t have to raise a hand against you for it to be considered abuse. You may be experiencing verbal, emotional or sexual abuse. There are various types of abuse.
1) Emotional abuse can include belittling, controlling behavior, threats, humiliation, intimidation and degradation.
2) Verbal abuse involved name-callings, yelling threats and using demeaning and vulgar language.
3) Sexual abuse is very common in abusive relationships. If you feel that you are being focused into unwanted, unsafe or degrading sex, you are being abused.
4) Financial abuse occurs when your partner takes complete control over your finances to the point where you lose personal freedom.
The bible says to avoid abusive people. “But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love…. having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.” -2 Timothy 3:1-8
