6 Signs You are Addicted to an Abusive Relationship
In a relationship, abuse can come in various forms including verbal or physical. But the irony is that many women feel like continuing their relationship despite facing abuse. Are you one of them? Watch out for some of these signs which mean that you are addicted to an abusive relationship.
1. You always think that it is your fault
Abusive partners often make the other partner in the relationship believe that they are always at fault. If you also think that your partner is rightfully meting out the abuse at you because it is you who is at fault, you could already have succumbed to the addiction of an abusive relationship. Always remember that in a relationship, both partners are equally responsible for each other. It is not only you who has to bear the accusation of being at fault all the time.
2. You love him despite the abuse
Do you desperately wait to meet your partner despite his abusive habits? Do you still see him as your perfect companion even though he abuses you? Do you still feel safe in his arms even after he has just meted out abuse on you? If you have similar thoughts, you could be really addicted to your abusive relationship. Because if you weren’t addicted, you might have left him a long time back.
3. You have become numb to name calling
It is a sign that you are addicted to your abusive relationship when you become completely numb to name calling. This is a situation when you stop feeling bad even if your partner calls you by insulting names. The easiest way to find out is to actively listen to your partner’s verbal rants when he argues with you, and judges your own reaction at being called derogatory names.
