Develop emotional intelligence, be aware of your own value and understand that it´s not your fault that you are being abused. See a psychologist!

In addition to seeing a counselor, there are tons of self-help books for people who feel they are in abusive situations.  These may help you understand codependency, or the need to be needed.

Tell your spouse what they are doing is hurting you. If they don't listen, consider separation. If they still do not listen, then you will need to consider leaving them or divorcing them.

If you are not married, you can just walk away. If you are married, try to get them to go to counseling. If they refuse, you can use that as a basis for your divorce proceedings.

Relationships that are emotionally abusive may escalate, becoming physically abusive as well. The hardest part is making the decision to leave. Most abusers have control of their victims and make it very difficult for them by wearing them down financially, physically, or emotionally. If you are ready to leave, the best advice is to do it now before things become worse. If you’re not sure, try initiating some space between you and your partner. Be careful, though, people with abusive and controlling behavior can be unpredictable. They may be calm and collected one moment, and explosive the next.  Only you will know how dangerous your situation is. Call for back up if you need it, good friends and family members will want to help you; and all too often, the abusive partner has isolated their spouse from his or her closest family and friends.  Gain their support if you can.  The best thing you can do for yourself is to indulge in self-love activities and
therapy, to regain your self-esteem, and create some distance between you.  Have a bag packed in case you need to leave
suddenly and stealthfully.

Gianna, how long have you been in the relationship?  How long has it been emotionally abusive?  What exactly does that mean?  Chances are, if things were good in the beginning, that there are some underlying issues that, once dealt with, the relationship can be stronger and better than ever before.  Have you ever broken a bone?  Medical science has proven that the bone is stronger in the place of the break after it heals than it was before the break.  A relationship can be the same way-once the issues are dealt with and a new foundation is built, the passion, trust, intimacy, and love increase!  I wish for you a life filled with Gratitude, Abundance, and Passion!  <3
