What IS Emotional Abuse?

AmberH ·
Emotional abuse is incredibly damaging to one's self-esteem and confidence with side effects that may last longer than physical abuse.

Emotional and physical abuse can occur in any type of relationship, ranging from parents and children to friendships or relationships. It is considered by...

Innocent enough but I didn't want to be kissed so I asked him to stop as he approached me. He got upset, later stated in the living room that me asking him to stop makes him in turn feel like a...
