One of the most harmful and insidious aspects of emotional abuse is that it is difficult for anyone, even the person it is happening to, to recognize it.  The person experiencing it is unable to articulate what they are experiencing and how it is impacting them. They live in a constant state of confusion and isolation, unaware of its long-term effects on their emotional, mental and physical health. All of these things make it it very difficult to get help.
