DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL ABUSE


ALTHOUG BOTH ARE DEFINITELY DISTINCT FROM PHYSICAL ABUSE IT CAN BE DISTINCTIVELY DIFFERENT FROM PHYSICAL ABUSE.


PHYSICAL ABUSE- PHYSICALLY CONTROL OVER SOMEONE ex. hitting slapping exc.

EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL ABUSE-DON'T LEAVE MARKS, BUT CAN BE JUST AS DESTRUCTIVE AS THE PHYSICAL. EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL ABUSE LEAVES YOU WITH ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, AND ADDICTION.


JUST LIKE PHYSICAL ABUSE THEY ARE PRIMARILY A MEANS OF CONTROL A WAY FOR THE ABUSER TO FEEL SUPERIOR. ALSO MORE INSIDIOUS BECAUSE EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL ABUSERS IS EVASIVE AND WILL MAKE YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE THE ONE AT FAULT. IT'S DIFFICULT TO. DISTINGUISH BETWEEN THE TWO BECAUSE EMOTIONS GENERALLY FALL UNER THE PSYCHOLOGICAL UMBRELLA.


PSYCHOLOGICAL ABUSE - TYPICALLY CHARACTERISTICS IS THE DISTORTION OF SOMEONE'S SENSE OF REALITY. THE GOAL TO CONVINCE YOU THAT YOU ARE CRAZY, OR INCOMPETENT. THEY WILL RECALL SOMETHING TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM WHAT YOU REMEMBER, TO THE EXTENT THAT BASIC, VERIFIABLE FACTS ABOUT THE SITUATION WERE DIFFERENT. SOMETHING AS STUPID AS: "NO YOU HAD THE RED JACKET ON NOT THE BLUE ONE. DON'T YOU REMEMBER!?" CONVINCING YOU AND EVERYONE ELSE THAT YOUR MEMORY IS I PERFECT. BY THESE SMALL MATTERS THEY SET THE STAGE FOR LAGER DECEPTIONS LATER ON. REMEMBER IT IS NORMAL TO REMEMBER THINGS DIFFERENTLY OR TO FORGET MINOR DETAILS. BUT A PSYCHOLOGICAL ABUSER WILL DISTORT FACTS WITH THE INTENT OF UNDERMINING YOUR CONFIDENCE AND MAKING YOU MORE PLIABLE.


EMOTIONAL ABUSE- IS MORE A WILD-RANGING AND SOME WILL SAY ENCOMPASSES PSYCHOLOGICAL ABUSE. EMOTIONAL Abusers MANIPULATE PEOPLE BY UNDERMINING THEIR SELF-ESTEEM OR RESORTING TO COERCIVE BEHAVIOR. THEY ARE PRONE TO SHOUTING, AND NAME CALLING. HAVE A DISPARAGING OR PATRONIZING WAY TO MAKE YOU FEEL STUPID AND INCOMPETENT. THEY LIKE TO GIVE ULTIMATEMS THAT'S IN THEIR FAVOR. THEY OFTEN BLAME YOU FOR THEIR EMOTIONAL REACTIONS OR UNHAPPINESS. THEY HAVE NO PROBLEM DISPARAGING YOU INFRONT OF EVERYONE. AND IF YOU REACT MAKE IT LOOK LIKE YOU ARE OVER-REACTING. THEY WILL FOLLOW YOU ON INTERNET (CYBER STALKING) TELL STORIES ABOUT YOU AS IF IT'S THE TRUTH AND YOU END UP ON DEFENCE MOST OF YOUR LIFE. HAVING TO PROVE EVERY STEP YOU MAKE.


BOTH THESE ABUSE'S CAN BE DISORIENTING. VICTIMS BECOMES UNSURE, NO SELF-ESTEEM, QUESTIONING THEIR OWN FEELINGS, CAPABILITIES AND MEMORIES. THEY DO START TO QUESTION PEOPLE AROUND THEM'S ATTENTIONS TOWARDS THEM. THEY DON'T TRUST, BECOME TOTAL INTROVERS. IT'S FOUND THAT AFTER YEARS OF THIS KIND OF ABUSE, THE VICTIMS BECOME BIPOLAE DEPRESSIVE, AND WITH A "SORRY I LIVE" ATTITUDE. AND THE ABUSER WILL STILL NOT TAKE THE BLAME AND LOOK FOR ANOTHER SCAPEGOAT...


IF YOU SHOULD FIND YOURSELF IN SUCH A SITUATION GET PSYCHOLOGICAL HELP IMMEDIATELY. YOU CAN AND WILL BE BROKEN...

SO BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER YOU DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH" SELF-WORTH " IS LEFT IN ANOTHER.
