I imagine that my husband is always criticizing me for thing

[4980]

I imagine that my husband is always criticizing me for things I don't do or thing that I do. I really don't know how to deal with it. When I was young my parents especially my mother found ways to criticize me on a daily basis. I felt like I was never good enough that I couldn't meet her great expectations. And now I feel the same only this time it's my husband who makes me feel am not good enough. I have been in therapy for many years, but stopped seeing a counselor two years ago. I want to see if I could manage things on my own, but I sometimes find it difficult. My counselor also suggested I see another counselor, because I was having panic attacks. I haven't decided whether or not to see this other counselor yet.

I really appreciate your support..And you are so right when you said '' People like your mother and husband are projecting how they feel about themselves onto you''. because I learned years ago, that my husband is insecure and emotionally abusive. My mother is over-protective and controlling and am not certain how she feels about herself, but I think she has a low self-esteem and is a bit of a perfectionist. Yes your right I do need to sidekick some one that is on my side for once.

You don't deserve that and if your parents and husband are rejecting you to set you free, then you need to be free of them. Also, I recommend you should continue therapy until you have broken the cycle of emotional abuse completely.

Your absolutely right I don't deserve that, but my dad has passed away 3 years ago and my mother is the only one that I need to deal with now, but she lives a thousand miles away from us. The only one I have is my husband and don't want to be free of him. And yes I plan to continue my therapy to break the cycle of emotional abuse. It is actually how I react to it and have boundaries is important too.
