Emotional abuse in Tangled

ambrena:

Abusive Expectations - Makes impossible demands, requires constant attention, and constantly criticizes.

image

Aggressing - Name calling, accusing, blames, threatens or gives orders, and often disguised as a judgmental “I know best” or “helping” attitude.

image

Rejecting - Refusing to acknowledge a person’s value, worth or presence. Communicating that he or she is useless or inferior or devaluing his or her thoughts and feelings.

image

Denying - Denies personal needs (especially when need is greatest) with the intent of causing hurt or as punishment. Uses silent treatment as punishment. Denies certain events happened or things that were said. Denies your perceptions, memory and sanity by disallowing any viewpoints other than their own which causes self-doubt, confusion, and loss of self-esteem.

image

Degrading - Any behavior that diminishes the identity, worth or dignity of the person such as: name-calling, mocking, teasing, insulting, ridiculing,

Emotional Blackmail - Uses guilt, compassion, or fear to get what he or she wants.

image

Terrorizing - Inducing intense fear or terror in a person, by threats or coercion.

image

Invalidation - Attempts to distort your perception of the world by refusing to acknowledge your personal reality. Says that your emotions and perceptions aren’t real and shouldn’t be trusted.

image

Isolating - Reducing or restricting freedom and normal contact with others.

image

Exploiting - Using a person for advantage or profit.

image

Minimizing - A less extreme form of denial that trivializes something you’ve expressed as unimportant or inconsequential.

image

Unpredictable Responses - Gets angry and upset in a situation that would normally not warrant a response. You walk around on eggshells to avoid any unnecessary drama over innocent comments you make. Drastic mood swings and outbursts.

                “Actually, it’s a map!

     He didn’t get others often interested
     in his line of hobbies. Mapping, locating
     and charting places across the outskirts
     of his homeland—something to share.
     Whether it be a new line of forests or a
     crystal clear lake with a new species of fish.

                “I travel to new places and draw them down!
                Are you familiar with a place called Narrow’s Arrow?

✿ “A map?” His armor wasn’t like anything she had seen before, nor were the small braids, the weapons on his belt — and then it made sense. He was an adventurer? Rapunzel’s jaw dropped as he admitted that not only was it a sketchbook, it was a map. One he had drawn, given his description.

     ”I’ve never heard of it — but don’t worry, I’m not familiar with a lot of places. I’ve been trying to learn about new countries, and cities, and towns, but there’s so much out in the world and — and may I see it? I’d love to learn about it — Narrow’s Arrow, was it?”

✿ “I have to ask, is that a sketchbook?” Rapunzel’s attention had been caught by the boy’s —rather, man’s — journal. She looked to him with interest, lips pursed to prevent further questions from escaping. One at a time.

"Bakeries are for babies.
  No, I need to know how
  to get to that tower where
  the long-haired freak lives.”

✿ Rapunzel’s mood fell instantly
    at the woman’s words.       She
    reminded her strongly of Gothel,
    given the dark coloring and pale
    skin.

                      “Long-haired freak in a tower, hm?”
                      Rapunzel   had   to   wonder  if  this
                      woman had looked at her properly.

     find the bakery   - -   was that
     the  place you were trying  to
     get to?”
