what is the worst type of abuse...physical, emotional, mental? i think that physical abuse is obviously really horrible and can lead to really severe consequences, but it can end..although the memory can haunt you forever. i feel like the pain of emotional/mental abuse can stay for the rest of your life. ive never been physically abused though, so i might not know what im talking about...but i have felt emotional and mental abuse...and it can be really destructive.

If you look at it deeply, physical abuse is somewhat linked to mental and emotional abuse. The reason being, physical abuse mostly causes pain which inturn triggers our mental and emotional state. Most of us are after all afraid of the feeling of pain as well as the feeling of being not in control. To answer you on a shallow dept, physical abuses can be healed in a reasonable time. However, the same cannot be said to mental and emotional abuse. These two takes a very long time to heal. Sometime not at all.. In fact mental abuse can actually change a good person to the opposite... Which can be devastating.

Abuses of any kind is bad and we have to live with it. But there is a quality of detachment if you have that it is easier to forget it.
