Internet safety/Support - Emotional Abuse

"Emotional abuse is when someone says or does something that makes you feel bad about yourself, or that hurts your feelings. Emotional abuse can be difficult to explain but it’s the way that it makes you feel that is important. If the way someone treats you and what they say and do to you makes you scared, sad or upset – that’s emotional abuse".

- Quote: Child line

What long term affects can emotional abuse have on you?

: Emotional abuse leaves imprints on a person. They will grow up to be a different person, to look at everything in a different light. Relationships can cause issues, bullying will cause many different types of depression or you might just have high anxiety.

Why do people emotionally abuse others?

: Certain people may think that it is all-right to abuse a person emotionally, due to a past that they may have with that person or they just found a weak point in a person and wish to take advantage of this. No matter what the circumstances are, it is not OK to do this at any point. Some people may not realise they are emotionally bullying at times, this method is not commonly picked up by a person but they know they have said the wrong thing when you get a response from the other party. Direct emotional bullying is not right and you should not have to put up with it. Be careful with the actions you may take, think about outcomes.
