Emotional abuse is a double whammy

Emotional abuse is as dangerous or even more harmful to the psyche as any other form of abuse, physical, financial or verbal.

It’s insidious potency is in the fact that it chips at a person’s self-esteem, unseen, until there’s no person at all, just a shell of a spouse, partner, sibling or friend.

Its second blow is almost always that the victim usually gets blamed for ‘overreacting’ when trying to end the abuse.
