The old rhyme “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me” certainly isn’t true.
Names, particularly if they are hurled at you by someone who claims to love you, can be terribly painful.
Any time your partner chooses to insult you, your appearance, your intelligence, your choices or opinions it’s emotional abuse.Constant criticism will compel the victim to “improve” him/herself.After all, if the person who loves you thinks you’re stupid then it must be true.As in the first warning sign calling names is about control and humiliation.
