Emotional abuse is more common than you might think. The victim often has a difficult time recognizing it because of the various manipulations that are used to inflict it. However, it is imperative that you understand it’s signs and how to thwart it, because it is in fact a form of domestic violence.
Emotional abuse can be generally defined as using manipulation, fear, intimidation and guilt (among other things) to control someone and undermine their self-confidence, self importance, and ability to get along competently in life. The reason it causes so much confusion is because it can be subtle and elusive. People often don’t realize it is happening to them, no matter how smart, capable or self-aware they are.
Have you experienced abusive behavior at some point in your life from a loved one, co-worker, friend or anyone else? Do you know how to identify such behavior and protect yourself from it?
Are you or a loved one the victim of emotional and/or psychological abuse? Do you feel confused as to the best way to deal with the situation? Do you have a difficult time recognizing people for who they are or for what they have in store for you?
People often confuse Self Esteem and Self Confidence. Many assume they’re simply just two different words for the same thing, but this isn’t true. You can have a lot of self-esteem and minimal self-confidence. The opposite is also true.
Having both is important. You’ll be more successful, happier in general, and happier with yourself if you can cultivate both qualities. Therefore it is important to fully understand the differences between the two.
Self Confidence is a state of mind, and it’s something that you can build up if you feel like your supply is running low. When you believe in yourself, you feel more secure, and you enjoy greater success.
Most of us have times in our life when fears and doubts undermine our faith in ourselves. You may experience setbacks that leave you feeling helpless. It’s also natural for self confidence to fluctuate from day to day or vary from one area of your life to another.
