Have you ever had been in a relationship where mentally you were abuse by your partner without they knowing it? Any of your friends that might have been in the situation and you don't really know what to do but only to help them out by giving words of comfort? I have been in a bad relationship before with my partner frequently abusing me mentally. And it made me feel so depress with myself, there was a time, I was even thinking I should just end everything because I could not make him happy and I don't deserve to be around people that I care because of what he said about me. It was wrong of me to ever think of that. What say you ppl? How would you determent if that person is in the state of being abuse? How would you know? What would you say? Because those people in that state won’t admit it, they won’t accept the bad thing about their partner or their family. Respond pls.

I think both physical and mental abuse are as bad as each other. Both leave scars, physical and emotional. Both make it hard to trust anyone. Both leave the abusee feeling depressed with low self-esteem. You are right to say that you were wrong to think you didn't deserve to be around others. Good on you for realising that! It's always hard to know what to say or do for others who are abused. All you can do is be there for them, remind them that they are not worthless, encourage them to get out of the situation. Remind them that there is help available, too. Many who are abused are scared to leave as they don't know where to go or what to do - they need to know that they will be OK and that they can get help.

Physical abuse can be heal by medical, but mentally abuse can only heal by yourself. Many people come to an end to their life when they face strong mentally abuse, but many people being more strong when they have physical abuse.

i think being mentally abuse is alot worst than being physically abused. you can easily forget being physically abused when the bruises are gone...but being mentally abused you cant just forget that you need therapy to forget the whole thing.
