Mental and verbal abuse are often disputed based on the illusion that if it is not physical, then it is not abuse. This silent manipulation epidemic is happening to even younger adults. Some are afraid to speak out, or embarrassed that they voluntarily and fearfully accepted this mistreatment.
After a punch, you hide it, to protect the abuser, but you can’t hide emotional abuse. They can convince you, that you deserved the treatment and the physical pain.
Within the scope of abuse, you will justify their behavior and victim logic,but you hide the fact that you stayed. No one with any respect would mentally and physically embarrass you. Mental abuse it is totally different because it tears your self-esteem down, brick by brick. The abuser gains power by belittling you and that right there is proof that they are a coward. They will be the nicest person one day, but you know in a few days it will be a change in behavior,for no reason.
Baby, that is no way to live.
If he has to hurt you to feel important, he doesn’t deserve you.
If someone systematically drilling in your head that you are the problem, you will believe it, and that is part of the manipulation.
Some women even apologize for their tears, after the abuser has insulted them. Don’t be embarrassed that you were manipulated.
You are not alone.
You trusted the wrong person, most men that would hurt you to gain power have a legion of people that hate them for the mistreatment of you.
Never be afraid to ask for assistance and by telling your story, you may save some undeserving person a chance to suffer the pain from you.
Even if they threaten you to stay with them, get away!
You can’t let someone control your emotions with an remote control.
Lies are told and promises broken, and they don’t care how they treat anyone.
You have your life and why would you waste it on someone that hurts you,lies to you and insults you to your face.
That person is an ass.
That person needs their ass kicked.
In the end, if someone is destructive to everything that they touch, they should not have the pleasure of touching you.
Get counseling to move on with your life, this person doesn’t deserve to breathe the same air that you do.

I agree, I try to be the man I’m ‘posed to be
But negativity is all you seem to ever see
I admit, I’ve done some dumb shit
And I’m probably gon do some mo’
You shouldn’t hold that against me though (Why not?)
Why not? My music’s all that I got
But some time must be ingested for this to be manifested
I know you know but I’m gon say this to you I…
Get high but I don’t get too high
So what’s the limit ‘posed to be?
That must be why you can’t get your ass up out the bed before three
You need to git up, git out, cut that bullshit out
Ain’t you sick and tired of having to do without
And what up with all these questions?
As act as though you know somethin I don’t. Do you have any suggestions?
Cuz every job I get is cruel and demeanin
Sick of takin trash out and toilet bowl cleanin
But I’m also sick and tired of strugglin
I never ever thought I’d have resort to drug smugglin
Naw, that ain’t what I’m about
Cee-Lo is just continue travelin his route
Without any doubt or fear
I know the Lord ain’t brought me this far so he could drop me off here
Did I make myself clear?
