The easy reply would be to say if you have real doubts as to whether it is happening, maybe it isn't. But too often, women ( and men ) who get emotionally abused blame themselves for what is happening, and this is strongly encouraged by their abuser. How you handle the situation isn't so simply answerable in this format, as so much depends on the specific circumstances. Seeing a counsellor is excellent, to understand the situation and to examine your options and choices of response. But start by refusing to blame yourself if anyone else cinsistently disrespects you and hurts your feelings.
