What Exactly IS Abuse? (Connie J...)
"Abuse is the improper usage or treatment of a [person or] thing, often to unfairly or improperly gain benefit. Abuse can come in many forms, such as:
- physical or verbal maltreatment
- unjust practices
- or other types of aggression."
It can be the use of manipulation to control another person, physically, mentally, or emotionally.
Many times, it is a generational continuation - it just blends seamlessly into the lives of people raised in it.
While abuse CAN be in the eye of the beholder, these are just SOME of what defines abuse. As I have said, there are as many forms, as there are people - thereby establishing that there really is no EXACT definition of abuse.
But, it also establishes
that NOBODY DESERVES to be abused...
