Emotional Intelligence | Main page on emotionally abusive mothers


Here are some notes from an emotionally abusive mother (who was also abused emotionally and physically by her parents). These are things she said to me:

- You are always sleepy

- You invited me here.

- You always think of yourself.

- You should have told me...

- You change your words. I don't change my words.

- When you see people in the street you stop to talk to them. (She felt less important than the people I talked to on the street.)


From a single mother in Bulgaria in April 2008.
