    If you are being insulted and put down, made to feel belittled or mocked.

    What's going on hon?

    I can't mentally reconcile him asking me to cut off a family member. I feel trapped and horribly stuck. If I felt any worse, I'd feel suicidal. I'm so close to the edge.

    Therapy tomorrow. Just me.

    Is this a family member that he doesn't like for any particular reason? Is this family member someone that is bad for you? Just trying to understand.

    If you don't have any reason to want to cut this person out of your life then I'm not sure why he should want you too. Does he have any reason to dislike this family member?

    i remember reading the thread about this- if im correct this is a family member who has caused problems for you and has been a very serious issue for you in the past. however you have decided to reconcile the relationship right?
    your boyfriend is concerned and doesn't want this person in your life but i'm wondering what is he doing that you actually feel emotionally abused? and almost suicidal? that seems very extreme fudgie considering other aspects of your relationship are going well?

    If he's making you feel close to suicidal about this that IS emotional abuse. I'm just sorry but it is.

    I think that's overly harsh. Unless he's belittling her, putting her down, or otherwise demeaning her as a person simply having an alternate opinion and sticking to it doesn't make something emotional abuse.

    What exactly is he doing that you feel is emotionally abusive Fudgie?

    He is demanding that she not see her own father. He gave her an ultimatum about it.
