Original Text

Lastly, when someone directs any of these behaviors at you, take note of whether this is part of a pattern of behavior from them. A one-time incident of name-calling or a demeaning insult might not be emotional abuse, while repetition over time can have a much more serious impact. Both frequency, how often these behaviors occur in a given period of time, and duration, or how long they last, whether days or years, can contribute to the severity of the abuse. It’s also important to remember that abusers rarely engage in abusive behaviors 100% of the time— moments of kindness or calm don’t invalidate moments of abuse, but are actually part of the cycle of emotional manipulation.
