THe Monster Behind The Door #10

by

Unconsciously, I rub the purple patch on my arm. In anger, he squeezed it too hard. It still hurt a little but it was my fault really, I made the coffee too hot and he was already late.
I know his boss is very strict on punctuality but still, I was careless.
He is right, I am bloody useless, I can't even make a cup of coffee properly.
Now he is asleep. He came back late last night so, I make sure I don't make noise while I scrub the flat.
He likes everything immaculate, I never noticed that before.

    How easy it is for that creep to undermine, humiliate and almost (I hope) destroy her!

    It is a very typical behaviour of an emotional abuser. So much that the victim will self doubt, self depreciate, self blame but the more they try, the worse it becomes for them. The abusers sense vulnerability and go for it.
    It takes all your energy (or what's left) not to let yourself be destroyed and long is the road to recovery.
