Abuse is abuse. Not to compare, but emotional and mental abuse has the worst effect. I mention this because I’ve been there. Seventeen years of mental and emotional from my ex husband and then a year ago from an ex gf, who did both mentally and almost physically. She wanted a reason to physically abuse me all because of what I thought was the childish reason.🙄
She wanted me to hit her just so it would give her a reason to kick my ass. I wasn’t going to allow her to win. So I stood there and laughed in her face. I didn’t give her what she wanted but for the strangest reason I wasn’t afraid. Face to face, nose to nose. What did I do? I simply smiled. Which pissed her off even more. Then she backed down. 🤷🏽♀️
But mental abuse, that shit can damage you for life, bruises fade away. Either way abuse is abuse.
