about Emotional Abuse
« on: March 23, 2018, 06:03:20 PM »
Link to an old article on emotional abuse which has been revived at OOTF. I relate to a lot of it. I'm posting it here as well because some mbrs have said there isn't enough information or enough posts on emotional abuse.

It's extensive and could be *** Triggering *** for some people.

Thanks for posting Blueberry.  :thumbup:

This is a great article, spelling out some harsh realities. Emotional abuse is so often misunderstood and minimised.
Healing is the outcome of reversing longstanding patterns of self-alienation and building the capacity to love and accept our 'selves'.

Thanks so much Blueberry, I just read it and it's very good. Sad and hard to read... but true.

really appreciate you posting this blueberry
I treat myself like I would my daughter. I brush her hair, wash her laundry, tuck her in goodnight. Most importantly, I feed her. I do not punish her. I do not berate her, leave tears staining her face. I do not leave her alone. I know she deserves more. I know I deserve more.
