"Upbringing and background have a large role to play in this behaviour as well as personal experiences. The foundation of our emotional intelligence is formed in childhood, particularly the first 7yrs of a child’s life.
"If a person grows up in an abusive environment (physical, emotional, substance abuse etc), they will potentially form a skewed perspective that this is the norm and how relationships and love are supposed to be.
"However this is not the case in every relationship, there are various factors that can contribute to a person being abusive. A number of social forces also play a key role in shaping an abuser’s values and attitudes as well as creating an environment where abusive behaviour is rewarded and unpunished. In other words, it is a learned behaviour and a choice to abuse."
"Some of the most common signs and types of abuse include silent treatment or blocking a partner out. Criticism and verbal attacks. Restricting a partner from ‘normal’ activities and controlling what they can/can’t do. Financial abuse by taking control of their finances. Constant threats of ending the relationship or of physical violence. Constantly walking on eggshells, feeling fearful, and anxious around your partner and trying to keep the peace."
