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.
Abuse. Every time it gets a little worse. Get out before it gets you. I have been in both physically abusive and emotionally abusive relationships... the emotional abuse hurts the most but is the hardest to recognize and is the most accepted form of abuse for some bizarre reason.
