Is emotional abuse okay? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I feel like in our society we think emotional abuse is fine compared to other types of abuse. We handle it very diffierently but emotional abuse causes the same aftermath, it is just as damaging. I don’t know, I just read an article on it, idek how I got onto it, but it’s so true and everyone ignores it


    Same here - its never okay but I just had to put up with physical and emotional abuse - beating, making me work and saying all sorts to me :emo:

    Wow I can relate to this a lot… I guess you need find a way to stick it out for 2 more years then if you’re going to uni you can move out… if you’re not going to uni it all gets a lot tougher since renting is really expensive

    Have you any grandparents or cousins or aunts and uncles you could turn to? Give them a ring and see if they'll have you - Godparents, too. No abuse is okay and it's evidently a negative environment - one you've tried to stop by talking to your dad, which hasn't worked.

    You might want to also try talking to your mum on her own if your dad won't change the record.

    Hope that helps.

    My gran died a couple months ago, and my other grandparents are the same to me, they've told me I'm the reason for my parents fighting, my mums also fed them a bunch of lies about me, and then my uncle has skin cancer and I don't want to add to his stress, we have quite a close family weirdly, it's just I'm not really sorry involved in it. Thanks anyway I may reach out to my uncle and cousins if he gets better
    I'd say confront your mum, too - if talking to your dad doesn't work. Yeah do that as well as maybe looking into some counselling.

    Condolences for your loss.
