My father thinks my husband is emotionally abusive towards me, but I’m not convinced and not being convinced has led to me worrying that I’m being an enabler and making excuses. So now I’m like “Am I actually being abused or am I just being disrespected?” And if I am being abused, why am I not aware of it? I seem perfectly capable of identifying emotional abuse in other people’s relationships, so why am I having difficulty recognizing it now in my own relationship? Am I not recognizing it because it’s not actually abuse? Am I merely ignorant? Am I actually refusing to recognize it? Am I lying to myself? Is my well-intentioned father wrong? Is he quicker to label something as abusive because I’m his daughter and he feels the need to protect me? How many licks does it take to the get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop? I’m tired of thinking about it, gonna go snuggle a book. Hope you guys are enjoying your weekend ;) xo
