Emotional Abuse

“The only person that deserves a special place in your life is someone that never made you feel like you were an option in theirs.”
Shannon L. Alder

“The scars from mental cruelty can be as deep and long-lasting as wounds from punches or slaps but are often not as

obvious. In fact, even among women who have experienced violence from a partner, half or more report that the man’s emotional abuse is what is causing them the greatest harm.”

Lundy Bancroft, Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men

“So often survivors have had their experiences denied, trivialized, or distorted. Writing is an important avenue for healing because it gives you the opportunity to define your own reality. You can say: This did happen to me. It was that bad. It was the fault & responsibility of the adult. I was—and am—innocent.” The Courage to Heal by Ellen Bass & Laura Davis”

Ellen Bass, The Courage to Heal: A Guide for Women Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse

An abuser can seem emotionally needy. You can get caught in a trap of catering to him, trying to fill a bottomless pit. But he’s not so much needy as entitled, so no matter how much you give him, it will never be enough. He will just keep coming up with more demands because he believes his needs are your responsibility, until you feel drained down to nothing.”

My dad had limitations. That’s what my good-hearted mom always told us. He had limitations, but he meant no harm. It was kind of her to say, but he did do harm.”

Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

“It is not the the bruises on the body that hurt. It is the wounds of the heart and the scars on the mind.”

Aisha Mirza
