How to know if I am a victim of emotional abuse?

what helped me was realizing what a healthy relationship looks like. the people around you should make you feel affirmed and be supportive. if it’s anything but that, it’s an unhealthy relationship. abuse is where it gets more serious, but a lot of victims are made to feel that their experiences weren’t ‘bad enough’. so don’t be scared of seeming like you want to be a victim, honestly a big part of emotional abuse is making one feel like they’re making a big deal out of something serious. i’d recommend researching emotional abuse and also CPTSD to see if any of the symptoms resonate with you, doesn’t apply to all but it can be an effect of abuse
