Yes to what others are saying about the name-calling being abusive, horrible behavior. It’s not normal. It’s not okay.

Also, being emotional and sensitive does not preclude you from being smart and practical. You’re not less intelligent just because he tells you so. People who are *actually* smart and secure? Yeah, those people are confident in who they are, they know they don’t have anything to prove, so they don’t have to walk around braying about how smart they are or calling other people stupid.

I think this relationship has run its course. I also think therapy would be a great idea for you. You can work on the damage this relationship has done to your self-esteem and get the support you may need to leave and let go.
