It’s amazing that there are still thousands of mums out there that get a beating from their loved one, hubby/bf, some in front of their children. Ihate violence, no form of violence should be acceptable at all but while a man will slap you across the face & leave no scar or leave a bruise that you treat and it goes away, there is a slap far deeper than that, it goes to your heart, head and body! And it is VERBAL ABUSE, am talking about what a hubby/bf says to you whether it’s a comment or abuse. It could affect you for the rest or your life directly or indirectly. Comments about a woman’s looks, sexuality, size and brains are the most damaging. Over time these kick in & you start to believe them. Next it is low self-esteem, feeling of uselessness, hopelessness, struggling to live up to what your not.
We must guard against this form of abuse too, it is way too damaging!
