*Trigger Warning: Abuse*
Verbal abuse is psychological abuse by shouting, threatening, humiliating, insulting, blaming or deliberately intimidating. Exposure to abuse is a depressing condition that has a negative impact on a woman’s mental well-being. It is well-known that in older groups, victims of domestic violence are at greater risk for mental health problems.
Verbal abuse occurs when a person repeatedly uses abusive or derogatory words to gain or retain power and control over another person. Verbal abuse can lead to emotional and psychological trauma and progress towards physical violence. It can lead to deliberate hurting and weaken an individual’s souls.
Circular arguments, unhealthy arguments, judging, blaming, withholding, condescension, manipulation, threats, false actions, denial or justifications are the types of verbal abuse.
Most victims of psychological trauma in close relationships often experience changes in their thinking and actions. This varies with all the different types and lengths of emotional trauma. Long-term emotional trauma has long-term negative effects on a person’s sense of self-worth and integrity.
Dissatisfaction in marriage or relationships can be caused by psychological trauma or abuse. Traumatic stress can act as a barrier to the development of a couple. It demonstrates immature enforcement tactics and failure to balance your/others needs effectively.
Verbal abuse often occurs when two people are alone or when others cannot see or stop the abuse. It can occur in any type of relationship and is often a counting, subtle process that intensifies over time. When it does start, it tends to be the most common way to communicate in a relationship. This is accompanied by exacerbated forms of other emotional or psychological abuse.
Almost everyone has heard or known about those who have been verbally abused. Perhaps you are involved in verbal abuse. It is also possible that no one knows your circumstances. Verbal abuse is a form of assault that leaves no evidence of physical trauma. You (or your friend) may suffer in peace and isolation.
People who are in love can go through it due to a lack of control over themselves. It can destroy a relationship because a victim cannot stop the crime and the criminal takes it lightly. To be in a relationship, the couple should respect each other in every situation. Abuse shouldn’t be an option to control other person’s sentiments.
I don’t believe there is any excess when it comes to abuse — physical or mental. The victim is never to be blamed. The abuser itself is responsible for their actions. That said, there is always a reason why one person is abusing another, and unless we can try to understand why it happens, we have no power to stop the cycle.
There are reasons to believe that childhood behaviours play a role in verbal abuse. For example, a person who grows up seeing the abuse of one parent at the hands of another can incorporate this behaviour and repeat it in their adult relationships. They then replace the abuser from fear that they too would become a victim. Having seen it played, they know exactly how to use it to control it.
Verbal abuse is often difficult to detect because it is not uncommon for physical scars to occur unless physical abuse occurs. But it is often less obvious because harassment may occur in secret. The victim of verbal abuse lives in a state of gradual confusion.
In the community, the victim is one person. When alone, the abuser can be a completely different person. Usually, the verbal bully is a man and the victim is a woman, but not always. There are many examples of verbally abusive women.
