Four Types of Relationship Abuse



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

    Thank you so much for this and for the passage of scripture in support of being free from toxic relationships and toxic people. At the age of 22, I had my first ‘real’ relationship…I say real because he was the first ‘Christian’ guy I ever dated long-term after I turned my life over to God. I was so heaven bound in thoughts and attitude….I couldn’t wait for Jesus to come and at first, I didn’t want a relationship with him though, but I prayed and thought that this was God’s will for my life. When I met him, he was very deeply immersed into the bible…but once we started dating, the bible and conversations about God became very few. He began to show me his true colors and this was the onset of the verbal and emotional abuse that I endured for 1 year and 8 months. He said things like ‘you will call me lord and ruler….I will control you….you must submit to me at all times…obey me….live in fear of me….forget about yourself….forget about who you are…don’t love yourself….be like me…’I’ve never heard these words before. At the time I was so young and naive, I didn’t know what to think and to really see these as red flags. As we went on in the relationship, he would humiliate me in public, scorned and shouted at me, utterly disgrace and neglect me and then say all manner of evil against me. There was a time when I was sick, he cursed me with the language of hell and said ‘I don’t care about you!!! and the reason for your depression is because you are weak and stupid….and just to show how you don’t know how to get over things, something bad will happen on your wedding day, and you’re going to be upset for the whole day…’ I don’t claim any of that evil over my life. It was really hard for me to stop loving him…but I needed to realize that I needed to love God more and myself more because that so called Christian relationship was pulling me further and further away from God. He recently got married to someone with my name and I felt bad at first, because I truly loved him and throughout the relationship, I showered him with kindness. I needed to learn truly that the love I have from God is sufficient, and that I have no reason to yearn after an abuser because God has so much better in store for me than I know :-)
    I’m not gonna shed anymore tears over him…
