Physical aggression by a man toward his partner is abuse, even if it happens only once. If he raises a fist; punches a hole in the wall; throws things at you; blocks your way; restrains you; grabs, pushes, or pokes you; or threatens to hurt you, that’s physical abuse. He is creating fear and using your need for physical freedom and safety as a way to control you.
Emotional Abuse can be often worse than physical abuse, because it stays with the person holds their mind a prisoner. They accept the physical abuse because their mind is conditioned that they deserve it or what the person says must be true. I sadly know this it can take years to retrain believe in truth, not fiction escape all forms of Abuse. by maryanne
Yes!!!!! So they can and do control themselves when other people will find out! This is why you need to tell other people. The abuser should be embarrassed about their ridiculous behavior, NO EXCUSES!!!!
