The Connection Between Verbal Abuse and Anxiety Everyone Ignores

There is a strong link between anxiety and long-term mental abuse. Chronic stress and trauma lead to various mental disorders, one of which is anxiety.

However, many people overlook the serious negative effects of mental abuse, but it is actually on the same level of harmfulness as physical abuse. People can suffer a lot due to being yelled at, insulted, and disrespected.

According to Sherri Gordon, a published author, and a bullying prevention expert:

"Because verbal abuse isn't as clear-cut as other forms of abuse and bullying, like physical bullying and sexual bullying, it can be hard to identify. But that doesn't make it any less real.

Typically, verbal abuse involves some sort of verbal interaction that causes a person emotional harm. For instance, when someone is being downright critical, acting out in anger, and using words to try to control another person, this is verbal abuse.

This, in turn, leaves a victim questioning who they are. In fact, it is not uncommon for a victim of verbal abuse to feel inadequate, stupid, and worthless. After all, they are being defined by a verbally abusive person.

If verbal abuse occurs in a dating relationship, it can be particularly confusing because the partner is likely not abusive all the time. As a result, when the abuser is loving and gentle the victim can forget all the about the negative behavior.

Ultimately, the victim ends up ignoring the pattern of verbal abuse or makes excuses for the behavior saying things like he is just stressed out or he is going through a tough time right now."

Verbal abuse can be manifested through various kinds of behaviors, and the following can be clear signs of it:

1. Mood Killer

Abusers need to be in control of the situation, so they make you feel bad and spoil your good mood whenever possible since they feed when you are sad.

2. Name-Calling

Name-calling is a way to manipulate others and harm the victim.

3. Abusers Are Always Right

Abusers never apologize or enter a discussion about their behavior, as they believe they are never wrong.

4. Blame

Abusers blame other people for everything, in order to make them feel guilty and never good enough.

5. Jokes

If done without consent and permission of the other, joking can cause harm to the person affected.

6. Attack Interests

Abusers usually attack the hobbies, and interests of other people, making them feel worthless, and even end up lying.

7. Disrespect

Abusers usually disrespect others and do not appreciate anything other people do, making them feel useless and empty.

8. Behind Closed Doors

Abusers usually torment their victims behind closed doors, when no one can see them. Verbal abuse can happen at school, work, and at home, leading to severe trauma.

9. Isolation

Abused people often live isolated and avoid socializing, in order to protect themselves. They feel anxious when with other people since they lack self-confidence. In case you notice this, do your best to help this person.

This nurse was first pictured with a premature baby she cared for while still early in her career. The baby not only survived and lived a healthy life but he somehow unknowingly ended up working alongside her 28 years later.

By some weird alignment, the same premature she once cared for became her 28-year-old trusted colleague. The craziest part is that not only did the nurse save his life, but now they get to save more lives together.

Even Darkness Leads To New Beginnings

"Around six or seven years ago, a large portion of my neighborhood burned down in the fires that swept through southern California. While helping my friend's family pick through the rubble of their home for anything that could be salvaged, I saw a speck of white paper in the midst of one of the more blackened areas.

I picked it up and read it--the only text on this bit of paper, leftover after the rest of the page had burned away, was 'from the ashes, new life is born' "aawariya/ Reddit

"My grandmother died, so my family cleaned out the house and did the usual thing when people die. A few years later, my mom, being a crafty lady, went to a craft store and purchased a pack of papers with different designs on them (maps, newspaper clippings etc). One of the papers was a collage of recipe cards. She recognized the writing and the recipes.

It was my dead grandmother's recipe cards that had been scanned and turned into artsy paper. These were thrown out in garbage bags in Toronto. The paper company was from California. Crazy!"- Margerine_Man

"A couple of years back, I had a dream of my grandfather, who I was not particularly close to by any means. In my dream I saw his casket formally covered by an American flag-- he served in the military. He stood next to me in a room full of mourners and held my hand. He told me not to follow him out of the doors when he left. I watched him leave.

When I woke up and went downstairs, my older brother informed me that my grandfather had just passed away in his sleep while I also slept." - MultipleColoredChloe / Reddit
