Home Forums Looking for support? ‘Is it abuse?’ Is it abuse or is it me? Reply To: Is it abuse or is it me?


I know no one has replied to this for a while but I wanted to say thank you to everyone who shared their story. I’ve been exploring the same question (am I just over sensitive or is my partner abusive?) and had come up with a long list of their behaviours that suggested listening to my instincts, but I was shocked at how many other parts of your stories I recognised their behaviour in. I’m still not sure what to do because the last year of working from home means I’d lose my job if I moved out and I would struggle to support myself on my income even if that wasn’t an issue, but at least I’m thinking about it. It was so helpful to see parts of my situation mirrored here so I could see that other people didn’t think it was okay, thank you all.
