Verbal assault

Isn't verbal assault as detrimental as physical?

Sometimes verbal abuse seems worse, although there is no better or worse when it comes to any abuse. Verbal abuse can be hidden easier, so it seems harder to reach out for help. Others seem to thing your exagerating because they can't see it. It also seems that alot of people except verbal abuse as okay. I sorry but it is never okay!!!!

Verbal assult is just as bad as physical. Most who asult you verbally are committing Mental and or Emotional Abuse. Just because you arent bleeding or you dont have any broken bones, or you havent been bruised up doesnt mean that you arent hurt. Emotional and Mental abuse is detrimental to anyone.
If you allow it to continue you can be placing yourself in a situation where it soon turns to more thant just words, it turns to physical assualt. They feel like if you let them hurt you with words, then they can hurt you with other thngs. Stop it now, before it turns into somethng that you cannot control.
