One Love, an organization dedicated to helping end relationship violence, recently made a new video about the more subtle forms of emotional abuse.

It starts off normally enough.

According to One Love's statistics, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will experience relationship violence in their lifetime, and 57% of college students say it's not always easy to identify relationship abuse.
