Verbal abuse is when a person criticizes or insults someone. While many people think otherwise, verbal abuse is worse than physical abuse. Unfortunately, it is usually ignored.
Verbal abuse leads to a lot of health problems, since people go through a lot when someone disrespects them or is rude to them.
According to Sherri Gordon, bullying prevention expert, verbal abuse is hard to recognize. She says: “Verbal abuse is not as clear as other forms of bullying, such as bullying. physical and sexual harassment, so it is difficult to identify. But that doesn’t make it any less true”.
Verbal abusers are people who react in anger, making their victims feel worthless. They are always controlling and criticize everything.
The bad thing is the victims allow the abusers to define them. They can’t see reality as it is, but as the abuser presents it to them. Very often, the victims justify the abuser’s behavior, convincing themselves he’s acting that way because of some circumstances.
No one can have a healthy relationship with an abuser. The abusers enjoy having control and power over someone.
Verbal abuse leads to:
- Eating disorders
- Low self-esteem
- Lack of enthusiasm
Abusers insult people, and then say they were just joking. They always want their opinion to overrule and never consider anyone else’s point of view. They bully people and make them feel unworthy. Abusers think they are always right, and never admit to their mistakes.
What lifts them up is putting other people down. Abusers make fun of people’s hobbies, and think other people’s opinion is irrelevant.
They always put a wall around them, and don’t allow their emotions to be shown. They also use name-calling, disrespecting others. Abusers usually attack behind closed doors, when there aren’t many people to see them.
You have to help these victims, since sometimes the only thing they need is a little push.
