We all have dealt with nicknames and insults, even among our friends.An abusive partner will tell you that no one else will love you because you are fat, ugly, stupid – pick a word.Some partners may use the most disgusting references in order to crush your self esteem.Constant criticism will compel the victim to “improve” him/herself.After all, if the person who loves you thinks you’re stupid then it must be true.You need to be able to tell the difference between a silly nickname and an abusive one.
