From violent to verbal, abuse takes many forms: physical, emotional, sexual, and bullying. It happens in all kinds of settings: at home, in the workplace, and in institutions from schools to nursing homes. It happens across all ages, from children to the elderly. And it hurts both the abused and the abuser.
Abuse doesn’t only affect the lives of the abused and the abuser. It touches the lives of their families, their friends, and the people they work with, go to school with, and care about.
Perhaps saddest of all, abuse is a behavior that’s passed on and all too often the abused becomes an abuser.
The statistics are staggering. But whether you are abused or an abuser, you are not a statistic. You’re a real person and you are hurting, dealing with the psychological and sometimes the physical consequences of the trauma you have experienced or caused.
Abused or abuser, the effects of abuse will be with you for the rest of your life. But you don’t have to let the abuse or abusive behavior continue, you don’t have to let it control you, and you don’t have to live in a constant state of emotional and physical pain.
