Abuse is Abuse

Overcoming Narcissistic Abuse

You do not deserve to be abused in any way.

Physical abuse is what people think of when they hear the term domestic violence. People who are enduring other forms of abuse often do not seek help from places that help domestic abuse victims. 

Emotional and mental abuse is also abuse.

It is devastating just like physical abuse is. Victims of physical abuse say that they endured severe psychological damage from the mind games, the demeaning, the verbal assaults and the gaslighting of the abuser. 

Victims of physical abuse often have PTSD from the emotional aspect of the abuse.

The nightmares and the flashbacks are due to the fact that a person filled with darkness entered their minds and manipulated their perceptions of reality.

      Emotional and mental abuse cause severe scars, like what you have, Because this kind of abuse is invisible, it is worse in the way that no one really believes you. And at the time the abuse was occurring , no one saw anything.
      Emotionally abused children are just left to suffer and their behaviors that are because of the abuse, are considered being “difficult”

      They can come off as trying to be helpful and supportive, when they are trying to mess with our reality and crush our self esteem.
      Then when you act our against them., to try to defend yourself and stop them, you look like the abusive partner.
