The hallmark result of emotional abuse is confused and fractured communication. The victim is being fed many different, conflicting messages- positive/grandiose messages are mixed with erratic reactions to victim’s appropriate responses and it becomes genuinely confusing. Verbal Abuse makes you feel like you cannot speak at all- Emotional Abuse makes you feel like you didn’t communicate correctly enough, and that if you could just talk it out, more clearly perhaps…some resolution could be found. It is the victim’s job to FIX the situation.
