Recovery from an Unhealthy Relationship
You may have been struggling for a long time and perpetually feeling as if your needs and desires aren't important to a person close to you. You may have noticed that your relationship with this person is very one-sided. You have been giving and the other person has been taking. When you have set a boundary or asked for something you need in the relationship your requests are ignored and you get the silent treatment. When you ask for what you need he makes fun of you or your needs. When you try to gently confront her about something she did that hurt you, you don't feel heard. These are usually signs that something is wrong! Hidden emotional and psychological abuse may be the source of these feelings.
The emotional turmoil and heartbreak you feel may become grief as you make sense of what you have been experiencing in your closest relationships. You may find yourself worrying incessantly about a relationship, how a person will respond to you, or how to reconnect with a loved one. Feelings of hopelessness and despair may mean that you need support. I am here for you, You don't have to go through this alone!
If you have begun to recognize unhealthy patterns in your relationships or have found yourself waking up to the reality that you have experienced subtle and hidden manipulation or abuse you may experience more clarity on the issue by being present and paying attention to your experience in the relationship.
