26 Apr Domestic Violence Warning Signs
WARNING SIGN #7: THIN SKIN:
Abusers tend to have low self-esteem, so they are easily upset or insulted. They tend to make a big deal out of nothing, focus on insignificant details or comments, and assume that any difference of opinion is a direct personal attack. Abusers are highly inpatient, excessively critical of others, and lack the ability to forgive others. He may often claim that you have ‘hurt’ him; even your smallest transgressions cause him emotional pain. While his petty attitudes and outrageous emotional responses seem unfounded, you will eventually feel devalued and question your sensibilities. You will often find yourself apologizing for things you may have said or done, that he misinterpreted or blew out of proportion.
