6 hidden ways an abusive partner can manipulate you to stop you from leaving:

1. They isolate you from your friends and family. Removing any outside perspective. So theirs is the only narrative that you get to hear.

2. They switch being affectionate one minute to being aggressive the next. Which makes it so confusing whether this is a good relationship or not.

3. They chip away at your confidence and your own intelligence and your capacity to do things. So you start to question, whether you could even function without them.

4. They limit your access to money and monitor your spending, which makes it feel almost impossible to leave.

5. They threaten to harm themselves or you, which fills you with fear and is a powerful way to control you and stop you from leaving.

6. When they feel like they could lose you, they start making promises to change. The abuse is replaced with the charm and love that you saw at the beginning of the relationship and you want to believe it can get better, so you give it another go. And the cycle continues.
