“Verbal abuse (also verbal attack or verbal assault) is the act of forcefully criticising, insulting, or denouncing another person. Characterized by underlying anger and hostility, it is a destructive form of communication intended to harm the self-concept of the other person and produce negative emotions.” – Wikipedia
Over the years I have lived with abuse, trauma and neglect. I have also lived a dysfunctional life. Whichever way you look at my story, I have been through the mill, but I am lucky that through my blog, I continue to find an understanding on my experiences and that helps me with the healing process.
Any form of abuse, trauma and neglect is not something you forget, it’s something you’ve lived. It’s something you find a place for until you can find a way through. It is important to try to move on from the experience.
If anyone mentally or emotionally treats you badly or makes personal remarks about you, if someone physically hurts or verbally abuses you, if someone emotionally neglects or sexually abuses you, if someone is being aggressive towards you, it is important you find a place where you can feel and stay mentally safe.
It is important to speak out against any form of abuse. Unless we put a stop to the abuse by walking away, we’re inadvertently condoning abuse.
