Abuse takes many forms: physical, sexual, financial and emotional abuse. Emotional abuse is the hardest one to recognize because people might not be able to distinguish between jealousy and love. In addition, they deny being abused or fail to recognize that they are being emotionally abused. Abusive partners/friends/parents behave as if you were not there, shout at you in front of others or mock your intelligence when you make a mistake. They even make you question your mental health, which is called gaslighting.
