Leave him!

Talking out of experience. I've had a boyfriend who liked to belittle me, my dad and my sister (although he loved my mom and would have done anything for her). He also abused alcohol. I told him to leave - friends now are telling me I'm a more happy and relaxed person since he's not around. He also was jealous because of my good relations with my boss and his wife and accused me of having an affair with him. Please, MY BOSS IS 5 YEARS OLDER THAN MY OWN FATHER!!!!!

Leave him and carry on with your life - being happy, relaxed and loved by your friends!!!!!

If he swears at you... calls you names... throws tantrums in a way to make you feel bad.... does things to spite you... doesn't talk to you.... ignores you totally.... belittles your efforts....doesn't take your feelings into account when he says things... or does things..... those of the kinds of things an abuser does.....

How did you feel about yourself before you met him, better or worse?

Is he lifting you up, building you up? or does he constantly say things that puts you on a low?

If you felt better about yourself before you met him - emotional abuse
if he cracks jokes that always seem to hurt you or say things that make you feel low. emotional abuse
