Jealousy 5

>> Tuesday, July 20, 2010

This is the end of my series on Jealousy. I will be away for some time and I wanted to start off fresh upon my return. When speaking about possessive behavior it is important to discuss extremes-Domestic Violence. Up until this point I have presented scenarios on jealousy that can be controlled with much practice, as controling jealous behavior can be very difficult. If you find yourself in an unhealthy, controlling, possessive, abusive relationship; it is important to be aware and get help.

These are some important contact telephone numbers that may be helpful to you:
The National Domestic Violence Hotline 1-800-799-SAFE (7233)
New York State Coalition Against Domestic Violence 1-800-492-6906
RAINN 1-800-656-HOPE

*All calls are confidential and lines are open 24 hours, 7 days a week, and are available to both men and women.

These are some signs for being in an abusive relationship:
-Being afraid of your partner most of the time.
-Feeling inadequate, feeling you can't do anything right.
-Feeling emotionally numb.
-Thinking things are your fault and you deserve mistreatment.
-Your partner humiliates and yells at you.
-Your partner views you as a sex object and as property.
-Your partner ignores you and makes light of your accomplishments.
