Emotional bullying is for real! Being passive agressive and being silent is a form of emotional bullying. We are meant to help our partners. When you are going through difficult times, at times a person may not know how to comfort you, but on the whole if you find yourself consistently being found not comforted when you are at your lowest, you may be in a relationship where there is emotional bullying in the form of silence or emotional abuse. Emotional abusers often discount the victims feelings and act as though everything is completely okay. You must know, "your feelings are real and have every right to be validated" not disregarded whether a woman or man! It happens to both.
