Nobody ever said that dealing with emotionally abusive parents is going to be easy. In fact, many people have had to carry the burden with them until they become parents themselves (or even until old age!).

However, it's up to you to resolve this issue. You can either let the abuse affect you negatively or figure out a way to come out on top. I trust that you’re here because you want to succeed; and if I’m right, then read on to learn all about dealing with emotionally abusive parents.

Step 1: Know Yourself.

The first rule in the book is to know who you are; and who you are isn’t what your parents are saying you are.

You’re not dumb, hopeless or a good-for-nothing kid. Even if you're not exactly top of the class, you still have the ability within you to achieve great things. This must be clear in your head; otherwise, it’s going to be easy for your parents to kick you down.

Dealing with emotionally abusive parents might make this step harder than anything else; but you must believe that you are special and that you, like everyone else, deserves to find happiness.

Step 2: Find A Support Group.

Dealing with emotionally abusive parents can take a toll on you, so be sure to have reliable friends nearby.

The right friends will be able to help you pull through even in the darkest of times. Your guidance counselor can also be part of your support group. Don’t bottle everything up as it will only eat at you.

Step 3: Tell Your Parents.

Unfortunately, some parents have no idea that what they’re saying can actually wreak havoc in their son's or daughter's emotions. Once you find the courage, sit down with your parents and let them know about it.

I’m not saying that all parents will find the error of their ways, but at least you have managed to confront your demons. It would be helpful if you talk your plan over with a trusted friend or mentor, so they can help you go about it the right way.

Dealing with emotionally abusive parents will never be easy, but you can’t let mere words keep you from doing your best. No matter what they say, you are your own person. You get to dictate how you want your life to turn out and hopefully, you’ll choose to be the person who gets up from a fall and strives for excellence.
