They Don’t Have To Hit You For It To Be Abuse

"An abuser isn’t abusive 24/7. They usually demonstrate positive character traits most of the time. That’s what makes the abuse so confusing when it happens, and what makes leaving so much more difficult."

I’ve felt like this for so long and it never seems to change.  I’ve been with a man for 6 years now, who always tells me when I make a mistake, that I don’t try hard enough.  Every day it’s something new that I haven’t done right.
