This month I’m doing something a little different by writing a series of posts under one theme: abuse. There are several types of abuse, and throughout the month of March 2019 you’ll be able to find articles on the following types of abuse (links coming soon!):
- Emotional & Verbal Abuse
- Financial Abuse
- Domestic Abuse
- Sibling Abuse
- Digital Abuse
- Mental Abuse
- Sexual Abuse
But first, let’s define what “abuse” actually means.
The word comes from Latin and Old French words that mean “misused” and “to use wrongly.” Basically, something’s happening that shouldn’t be happening! It’s wrong.
If nothing else, the one thing you should always remember is that abuse is NOT your fault.
Emotional & Verbal Abuse
“How can you be so stupid? I know we raised you better than that! I can’t believe you actually thought that was a good idea—go to your room. You’re grounded, for life, you worthless, ungrateful fatty.”
