    Is Lying Abusive?

    Is Lying Abusive?

    It doesn’t matter the extent of the lie.Anne Blythe, Founder of Betrayal Trauma Recovery







    Often, women relate that one of the most painful and damaging aspects of emotional abuse are the unrelenting lies, manipulation, and gaslighting.







    Lies told to cover up sexual acting-out, such as infidelity, and pornography use.







    Manipulation to deflect and protect other behaviors that they had promised to stop engaging in, or perhaps have never disclosed to the victim before at all.







    Gaslighting, to keep the victim unsure of her reality and to protect his emotionally abusive and sexually perverse behaviors.







    Lies and Manipulation Make Abuse Difficult to Identify







    Tragically, lies and manipulation make emotional abuse even harder for women to identify.







    The vortex of confusion that surrounds a relationship that is governed by an abuser's manipulation tactics leave victims severely handicapped in their abilities to recognize reality.







    Many women report that they didn't realize that they were being abused for years, even decades.







    In my mind, I had always known abuse to be something that involved physical violence and that was not at play at all in my marriage. I never had any bruises or anything like that, so while I knew things weren't good and it was a very difficult relationship, I thought that’s all it was.Kelly Vogler, Advocate Against Abuse







    Emotional Abuse, Including Lying,  Is Never The Victim’s Fault 







    This was not just us going through a difficult time. I had it in my head that I was overly controlling and so he was feeling pressured and embarrassed and that’s why he would hide things because I was just too controlling or putting too much pressure on him. Kelly Vogler, Advocate Against Abuse







    Tragically, many victims, in attempting to make sense out of a chaotic situation, blame themselves for his lies and other abusive behaviors. The responsibility lies completely with the abuser. He is fully accountable for his decisions to lie and manipulate.







    It is never the victim’s fault. Women deserve support and safety: speak to a professional today. 







    Women will often look to their own personality traits, schedules, perceived faults and flaws, family stresses, including financial or extended family relational issues, a href="https://www.btr.

    Is Emotional Abuse a Domestic Abuse Issue?

    Is Emotional Abuse a Domestic Abuse Issue?

    "Emotional abuse is a domestic abuse issue. It falls under the umbrella of domestic violence."Anne Blythe, founder of Betrayal Trauma Recovery







    The long-held and damaging societal belief that it's "just emotional abuse" has caused harm to women all over the world for decades.







    Stevie Croisant, founder of the survivor support network, We are Her, sheds light on the truths about emotional abuse as a domestic abuse issue and shares how victims can begin the journey to healing through sharing their stories, finding community, and becoming educated about abuse.







    Emotional Abuse is Just As Damaging As Physical Abuse







    Because victims of emotional and psychological abuse rarely have visible bruises, the abuse they endure is minimized or often entirely dismissed by family, friends, clergy, and therapists. The secondary trauma that arises from being discredited by those they reach out to for support is devastating.







    While the bruises are not visible, the effects that emotional abuse has on the brain, body, and spirit of a woman are, indeed, tragic and real.







    "My message to domestic abuse victims is to try and help them identify (the emotional and psychological abuse) long before the physical violence starts. To start identifying the the emotional and psychological abuse because that is just as dangerous to your heart and your soul as any physical thing that could happen to you."- Anne Blythe, founder of Betrayal Trauma Recovery







    At Betrayal Trauma Recovery, emotional abuse is regarded as the serious and degrading abuse that it is. Speak to a professional now.







    Physical Abuse is Always Accompanied By Emotional And Psychological Abuse







    "You can’t separate them out. You’re never ever going to get physical violence without emotional and psychological violence."- Anne Blythe, founder of Betrayal Trauma Recovery







    Tragically, victims of physical abuse also endure emotional and/or psychological abuse at the hands of their abuser. Physical abuse is never a stand-alone issue.







    Physical abuse has been a long-misunderstood concept: while physical battering absolutely qualifies as physical abuse, it is not the only act that falls under definition. Any act that causes bodily harm or that causes fear in the victim of the threat of bodily harm is physical abuse.







    Some examples of physical abuse are:







    * Destroying physical property (punching walls, kicking structures or items within or outside of the home, breaking something that belongs to the victim or her children)* Threatening (or offering a subtle threat) to harm a woman or her childre...
