To often I find that people do not understand verbal and emotional abuse. They tend to downplay it, and if you would JUST be nicer you could change the person.
Diversion off the verbally abusive person and its placed back ON the person that is enduring the abuse.
Below are two examples of children being verbally abused, and people are outraged for good reason.
I found that if is targeted towards a spouse they are asked, "What did you do to make them so mad?" Its not a matter of doing anything. Its a matter of dealing with an irrational person.
Please keep in mind both of these videos can be very triggering to people, so please keep that in mind.
I need to warn you before you view this video that it can be very triggering, and will be hard to watch. The child got to the point where he lashed back, and its a good example of the helplessness you feel when on the recieving end of verbal and emotional abuse. They feel they have no other options but to defend themselves.
It shows how the verbal and emotional abuse that is thrown at people can be constant, and they tend to come back at you will additional attacks.
Both of these examples are of children, and we should be outraged of their treatment. I pray that one day people will take this serious enough to realize that no one should have to put up with this. That includes adults within marriage.
Terri Rimmer wrote an article about, "How Being Verbally Abused as a Child Affects an Adult".
As children live with emotional and verbal abuse WHY is it that people get confused as to why that cycle continues into adulthood is beyond me. The world needs to take abuse in general a bit more serious, and stop making excuses for the abuser.
I see examples of people making excuses for abusive behavior alot, and until it stops or even slows down things will NOT get better!
What excuses have you seen for abuse?
