Verbal abuse is a pattern of behavior which interferes with positive emotional development, and over time can lead to significant loss of self-esteem, emotional well-being and physical state.  It is also described as an ongoing emotional environment designed by the abuser for purposes of control.

If you are expericing the types of behavior listed below, please know that you are not alone, and help may be just a phone call away.
  • Abuser blows up, yells or dominates you
  • Abuser makes derogatory comments about or discounts you and the things you have to say
  • Abuser calls you a liar, hypocrite, ugly, fat, etc.
  • Abuser blames you for his/her behavior
  • Abuser refuses to listen to you or share his/her feelings, or gives the siltent treatment
  • Abuser makes light of your work, your efforts, your interests or concerns
  • Abuser manipulates your words and thought process or causes you to submit to undesirable or illegal behavior
  • Abuser says that something did not occur and it definitely did.
Many people have no idea that verbal abuse is considered a form of domestic violence designed to oppress the victim.  If you are being subjected to this type of behavior, get in the mirror every day and keep telling yourself that it's not your fault.  No one deserves to be abused.  You are special.  You deserve to be appreciated and loved.

When you can, seek help.  Know that someone does care and wants to support you. I care...
