Too often we focus on physical abuse and tend to neglect the silent abuse – emotional.
Emotional abuse can happen to many people and not only partners. Emotional turmoil can be triggered by catty people trying to put you down or it can be a sleigh of criticism which causes emotional stress.
Abuses come in many forms and too often we only recognise the physical ones. When you dress someone down with a sarcastic tone remember you are causing a verbal abuse. Verbal abuse triggers our emotional being and in turn causes a great deal of unwelcomed stress.
Mind your words and mind your actions even if they are not directly physically occurring because we are a sensitive species and words can cut sharper than knives.
