  1. I think emotional abuse is much more insidious than physical abuse, because it can just look like “that’s how they were raised,” or “they’re hard on everybody like that,” or “they are tough and disciplining.” I remember all kinds of excuses that people made for their neighbors, their friends, and their siblings. We just aren’t always aware that emotional abuse is a thing. It’s a thing as real as physical abuse. However, physical abuse is such an obvious place to put a complaint.

I’m simply trying to make sense out of my own emotional abuse – by the words of another, another I didn’t choose and is not related to me but had a firm hand in my upbringing all the same – that I just recently recognized as such. I’m in therapy realizing what happened to me. And while I’m relieved to put it into words, there is still so much guilt and pain at putting this person at fault. It’s really hard. For me, it’s really hard. Thank you for having this blog.
