(((Alpha03))), I see you are a survivor of emotional abuse. This can make a person more sensitive to how others around them are behaving and can create an uneasyness that other people are emotionally abusing you like you had experienced in your history. It can trigger strong FEELINGS about how others are behaving, but, it's important to recognize these feelings and step back and consider if you are being triggered from what you experienced in your history or are you really actually experiencing the same thing in the now.

It sounds to me like you may be struggling with some ptsd challenges and you should reach out to a therapist so you can talk about these challenges you have so you can understand how you struggle better and learn ways to step back when you are triggered and make sure you are not just assuming you are being emotionally abused like you have experienced. It's hard because a victim of abuse can most definitely be very sensitive. That is why having the right therapist can help you learn more about things that trigger you and how to better evaluate things that you experience and how they may not be what you experienced in your past. It sounds like you never have had a chance to talk about your past and work on processing some of it? That can most definitely take time depending on what kind of abuse you experienced and how young and for how long.
