Controlling Behavior


Recommended Posts

Is controlling behavior such as telling somewhat what to say in situations considered abuse?  Also, telling somewhat what they can and can't wear, who they can be friends with and where they can and can't go.

You already know your husband is abusive.

I thought you decided to divorce him. Did he in fact move out or did you decide you want to stay together?

OP, all this is now beside the point., He is, thankfully, gone. Why keep tormenting yourself with these ruminations.

That's great.

So yes, he is abusive. All the way around.

Are you able to attend counseling? It's a great idea to talk to someone who specializes in abuse so they can help you get through the next few months.  They can help you when you start to "miss" him or think you "overreacted".

And most importantly,  do not communicate with him. You already know you have a tendency to believe everything he says, so don't even give him the chance to confuse you.

How long has he been gone? Are you questioning your decision to divorce him? Is he contacting you and trying to get back?

He's gone for a week.  Yes, he's trying to get me back.

So this is why you ask right? Please don't have any doubt about your decision for a divorce. I suggest you cut off contact with him to make this easier on yourself. All he is doing is trying to manipulate you. He's trying to control you in any way he can, if it's texting you or calling you. Cut him off.

Yes, I'm doubting now because he is trying to tell me I'm wrong and we are all doing him wrong.  He makes me feel like I'm a horrible person for trying to take care of my kids and keep them safe.

Will you please stop listening to him and having any kind of conversation with him. Cut him off. He is no longer in the house.

 

I can't!!  If I don't answer, he comes to my house!

That is called stalking and harassment.  So, get a restraining order!!

And do not open the door when he comes to the house.  Do not engage. He sounds utterly insane! 

See your lawyer asap, tell him/her the situation and set the divorce in motion.

Then you ask your attorney to file an order of protection. 

Yes, you can.

I did file an order of protection and then he told me he was going to have me arrested and so I dropped it.

This is the craziest stuff I've read in a long time.  Why are you communicating with him? Listening to his craziness? Just file the order, and you don't have to announce to him that you are doing it.  Come on!

No one is being hateful, OP. 

This is NOT your life. Remember the other threads?  You need to get a hold of yourself. The idea was that you'd see a lawyer, get a divorce, have everything properly documented, with strict visitation rights in place.

Instead here you are a prisoner with this madman showing up at the house at any time.  Do you not see how crazy that sounds to us reading what you say!

Yes, Wiseman. I do indeed remember the other two threads.

Visitation rights for who?? What are you talking about?

    • 5 Things People Who’ve Been Mentally Abused Do
      Do you know how common mental abuse is? According to The National Center for Biotechnology Information, 80 percent of the population has experienced some form of abusive relationship and behavior. However, despite how frequent it is, emotional abuse is still hard to spot. Unlike physical abuse, mental abuse doesn’t leave any visible scars; instead, it affects someone’s behavior, mindset, and mentality. This means some people deny they’ve been mentally abused, and others may not even recognize the toxic behavior. So, whether you’re reading this to be able to recognize emotional abuse in others or recognize it in yourself, these a few things people who’ve been mentally abused do are sure to help you be more empathetic and kinder.

    • 5 Polarity Secrets to Attracting Love that Makes you Magnetic AF
      In this video, I'm going to show you the 5 most powerful ways to create polarity in order to attract love. Think of it like a magnet. If you have a magnet, it is going to attract, but also repel based on its polarity. If you have a positive and a positive and you put them together, guess what's gonna happen? They're going to repel each other. Same with a negative and negative. But when you have a positive and a negative, they clink right like this. The key to attracting love is embodying your own sense of polarity, which really is the authenticity of who you really are, letting go of what you are not so that you can attract love easier than ever. These are things that completely transformed my own life.
