Emotional abuse is worst of all threats ...... (Page 3)
TheCovenant: We are punishing you so you will learn from your mistakes.
But I have a rational thought impediment which keeps me from understanding causal effects.
We know, we are the ones who gave you that impediment.
Smiles_69: Emotional abuse is terrible make you feel like your useless can not do anything right , and everything is your fault . have to walk on eggshells all the time and ask yourself what did l do to deserve this
TheCovenant: Daisy 1951, so true, especially in this day and age when everything is getting better and better and faster and faster. A simple rule of thumb or guide line: If you haven't been charged and convicted of the act, chances are its not your fault.Don't let the self righteous lay a guilt trip on you, and if they do, throw them a hissy fit.
Mopar2004: I can't Express this enough. Emotional abuse affects you when you think that you are not worthy of having a peaceful, loving , caring, supportive relationship.
YOU ARE! and if the relationship you are in does not define that?
Be done with it.
It is so much better for you, to be just you, than not you with a lethal attachment at your side, just for the sake of not being alone.
I'd rather be alone and read books. 🤗
CaribbeanPoet: I truly can relate as I was once an abuser but took a complete 180 degree turn and now an advocate against Domestic Abuse and now a strong Christian too. I have an Organization in my country that is in the final process of being recognized geared against Domestic Abuse across the board in families. Do be encouraged
AretoNyx: Children having to face any kind of abuse is terrible. Including given excuse of religion or traditions.
Some may not know they are even doing it because of this.
Mopar2004: Good stuff..Caribbean! Everyone is given chances to be a stronger, smarter more loving person. It's how we handle those chances that matters
swampandfire: emotional abuse is the same thing as psychological abuse and i think it is so bad because it is internally focused.
swampandfire: you fear something inside. its unnameable. and you're trapped. its compressed violence.
TheCovenant: A man is upset about his irrational fear that there is a monster under his bed. He decides this needed to change so he starts going to a therapist. After months of therapy, his fear is still there, so he leaves the therapist to find someone who can cure him.
A month later the therapist runs into him and sees that he appears happier than before.
She asks "Did you finally get over your fear of a monster under your bed"
He replies "Yes, and it only took one therapy session too!"
"Simple. He just told me to cut off the legs of my bed."

TheCovenant: I didn't know what other forum to write this down so I choose this one. Sports, I don't know why men watch men's sports. There is something homoerotic about men watching lean glistening basket ball players run up and down the court. Or men's golf, squeezing their legs together and bending down gently to hit a ball in tight fitting golf clothes.
I believe in sports, in particular women's volleyball and women's water polo.
The closest I get to homo eroticism is talking to my psychiatrist while he rolls his eyes in ecstasy when I tell him about my personal troubles. I imagine him masturbating at night to get to sleep while imagining his patients and all their problems that he listens too.
Oh well just a thought.
uglycow10: As I began reading I had a quizzical look on my 'scrunched up" face, not knowing where this was going. Then, it turned into a questioning look which turned into a smile...and it terminated in a laugh.
Why that reaction, you ask? I have no clue...but that is what it was.
Perhaps some males do watch sports for the homoerotic pleasure, as you stated...but I believe that most males are testosterone-driven... and highly competetive...and that is what draws them to watch sports..
I also wondered about the nature of your convesations with your psychiatrist. It was also unclear to me whether the notion of your shrink 'rolling his eyes'' were a real or imagined situation..
None theless, it is an interesting post.....
