Mental slavery is the worst form of slavery. It give you the illusion of freedom. makes you trust, love and defend your oppressor while making an enemy of those who are trying to free you or open your eyes -- Miss Fiyah
These skilled manipulators have an arsenal of tactics...They can inflict so much psychological warfare and make you suppress so much emotion that you can be backed into an emotional corner. When this happens, the intense frustration you feel, but are not allowed to express through normal communication, will cause you to blow up in a reaction of self-defense. Emotional reactions in self-defense to an abusive situation do not make you an abuser.
