i think i might have emotionally abusive parents [i really hope not] but i do exhibit [emotionally] abusive behavior towards my younger sister imo. i don’t want to shut her down or belittle her ;; any advice??

Hi anon. My best advice to you is

1. Watch yourself for abusive behavior, and try to avoid it. If you see yourself becoming abusive, remove yourself from the situation until your mood has changed.

2. When you believe you have been abusive, apologize quickly and sincerely.

3. Ask your sister if she can try to point out abusive behavior in you when she sees it, so you can remove yourself from the situation.
