  • Put down your accomplishments or goals?

  • Make sure you feel like you are unable to make decisions?

  • Use intimidation or threats to gain compliance?

  • Tell you that you are nothing without them?

  • Punch, kick, grab, shove, or hit you?

  • Show up at places unexpectedly to check and see if you are where you

  • Use drugs or alcohol as an excuse for hurting you?

  • Blame you for how they feel or act?

  • Pressure you sexually for things you aren’t ready for?

  • Make you feel like “there is no way out” of the relationship?

  • Isolates you from your friends and family?

  • Leaves you places after a fight to “teach you a lesson”?

Do You…………….

  • Sometimes feel scared of how your partner will react?

  • Constantly make excuses to other people for your partner’s behavior?

  • Believe that you can help your partner change if only you changed

  • Try not to do anything that would cause conflict or make your partner angry?

  • Feel like no matter what you do, your partner is never happy with you?

  • Always do what your partner wants you to do instead of what you want?
