Funny how verbal violence leaves much deeper wounds than does physical violence.
This is such a powerful message. It shows that verbal abuse can hurt as much as physical abuse. That saying “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me” is, in fact, a lie, in my opinion. Words do hurt. A lot.
I am 19 years old and I have been verbally, mentally, and emotionally abused almost my whole life. Whether it was by my family or my most recent ex. To be honest with you, I’d rather get punched in the face physically. Verbal abuse has turned me into the person I am today. Insecure.
Forever reblog. I agree 100000%</3
Maybe if I show this to my dad he will understand why I cry when he yells at me
Wow I thought I was the only one who felt like this. This is my life and I agree with this. I would much rather get punched in the face and hear what I heard or get mentally and verbally abused. Some days taking the punch was easier then the words.
I like this… I love the message, but I wish it wasn’t just men yelling at women. Women can verbally abuse others too.
Other than that, powerful.
