Verbal abuse is sometimes discounted and overlooked, when in reality, it can be just as damaging as physical abuse.
When someone is being physically abused, one would assume, that someone would step in to help. But why is it any different if the apparent abuse is verbal?
The ‘mind your own business’ thought might pop into your head, but if someone’s being verbally abused in public, can you imagine what goes on at home?
The fact of the matter is that abuse is abuse, no matter what form, and it’s never okay.
