So if you've been in a very emotionally abusive relationship, the 'victim' can be quite badly affected. so you might have counselling or see a psychologist. but what about the 'abuser'? Surely they also need psychological help? even more so than the victim because they're more of a menace to society and other women.

Wtf.... totally trivialiing something that shouldn't be trivialised

I'm saying if a guy is emotionally abusive, always has to have the power and higher control in the relationship, constantly lies and gaslights as well as being manipulative, they might need help right? And if this is all unintentional then they have deep rooted problems

Yeah, but it's unlikely they will seek or accept the help.

yeah the abuser definitely will need help as they’ll most likely have problems but the difference is the abuser is most likely not to ask for it as they either won’t want it or won’t think they need it.
Forced rehabilitation is probably the most likely way that they’ll receive help and that’s only through being institutionalised

I was actually talking about how the 'abuser' needs help. I'd rather have emotions than think emotional pain is nothing and it's fine for people to abuse each other. Mental health and personal esteem and confidence is important and we are lucky in the first world that we can seek help for it. I get that others have 'bigger' problems elsewhere but it doesn't mean people in first world countries have no problems or their problems are unnecessary. If I have been emotionally abused for a year, I can't help feeling ****ing **** which wasn't even what I was talking about.

Take no notice of them. If they weren't a coward they wouldn't have said what they said on anon to you.

Just because someone else is going through some **** doesn't invalidate the **** you're going through, OP. Focus on getting yourself right.

Even then it's unethical to force treatment or interventions on someone, it's very much down to the individual to actually want to change their attitudes and behaviour
