Not all Abuse is physical

Just because a person doesn't put hands on you doesn't mean they aren't abusive to you.

Abuse is control, blatant disrespect and also hurtful words. Don't settle for emotional abuse thinking it's okay because it's not physical.

People would always say...

"I'd never let anyone treat me like that" but they don't realize abuse is not always physical or outright verbal. Some abuse is more often than not start out slow with continuous small indiscretions until they program you to accept their bad behavior.

Abuse is punishing you with emotional distance and making you feel unworthy. It is slowly ignoring your wants and needs, making you feel unloved or unimportant like your life don't even matter.

It's a progressive manipulation where you find yourself wondering how you ever got in that terrible position that's almost wrecking you.

Living with an emotionally abusive person is so exhausting. It's so mentally and emotionally exhausting and that exhaustion spreads into physical exhaustion and it eventually drains the strength and life out of you if not fixed in time.

There is no safe way to remain in a relationship with a person who has no atom of regards or respect for your life, how you feel and the trauma they cause you. The only solution is to leave while you can so you can live cause living with an emotional abusive person means that you're constantly living in a state of stress and fear for your life.

Long term verbal abuse can break you not just mentally but also emotionally, make you unsure of yourself, unable to recognize your true value and make it hard for you to trust anyone easily. Just because you can take it or handle it don't mean you have to keep tolerating the abuse.

Abuse in whatever form is never right or okay.
