I couldn’t have made it out of my situation without him. Because the abuse was more subtle, it was harder to recognize and left me second-guessing myself continually.
While he was not physically abusive, he raged at me when I questioned his behavior or disagreed with him, called me immature, insecure, or overly sensitive when I reacted to his criticism or judgements of me and was dismissive of my opinions and emotions that were inconvenient to him.

Beware the sneaky ones out there who don’t quite fit the descriptions!
