How do you cope with emotional abuse?
I have dealt with this for many, many years at the hands of
a parent. I continue to live with it and see it every day.

First, try to identify if it is really abuse or just being told what to do. By your teens, your parents should be able to trust your judgment of familiar situations, but know that you will likely need help when coping with unfamiliar situations.
Focus on the good: you continue to live, despite whatever is said.
Until you live under your roof, you will have to follow the rules of the roof owner. Once you have your own roof, you can make your own rules that others must abide by or leave.

If they love you be honest with them
Or at least you can walk away from them
Sometime the only solution is to walk away even when you love them
