Humiliation.

This is when someone (the abuser) intentionally cause disgrace to the victim especially in the midst of crowd, to reduce his or her self worth. Therefore, causing the victim to be engulfed in the wave of shame.

According to Wikipedia, Humiliation is the abasement of pride, which creates mortification or leads to a state of being humbled or reduced to lowliness or submission. It is an emotion felt by a person whose social status, either by force or willingly, has just decreased. Humiliation is the primary cause of shame which can lead to depression.

Blaming.

This is when the abuser falsely accuse or assign false responsibility to his or her victim for being the reason behind a bad, unfortunate situation or phenomenon.

Blaming is a cognitive distortion which involves assigning guilt or responsibility for how we feel to someone else which in the end, ultimately leads to negative emotional conditions to the victim.

Silent Treatment.

This is when the abuser purposely ignores the victim by refusing to communicate when they (the victim) is trying to communicate, by pretending that they don't or never existed.

This behaviour may range from just sulking to malevolent abusive controlling behaviour as it can leave significant psychological and emotional repercussions on the person on the receiving end. Because, being left in silence can be extremely painful and can leave the victims questioning "what really happened?" or "what have I done wrong?".

Isolation.

This is a strategic abusive behaviour, when the abuser restricts the victim from the outside world controlling their social activity, ie. whom they see, whom they talk to, where they go. May also include materials they digest: the books they read, TV shows they watch, music they listen to, food they eat and so on.

Thereby, blocking any form of support to the victim inorder to gain total control over them, both physically and mentally.

Trivializing

This is when the abuser tells the victim that he or she is over-reacting or being overly dramatic to a situation thereby making the victim think or feel that the situation seem less important, insignificant, or complex than it really is, therefore is not supposed to react that way.

The size of discomfort is proportional to the size of the problem. Here, the abuser makes small and downsize something (especially complaint) which is important to the victim and hence expects them to ignore it. Even when they know the victim have a point but because they don’t want to deal with it, they wave it out.

The Abuse Is Not Your Fault or Your Responsibility

Now that you've gotten to the end, if you feel you may have or is currently experiencing this, and you might have a strong tendency to believe that what is happening is your fault, I need you to understand that it is not your fault.

Also, freeing yourself from someone who is causing you mental abuse is very difficult. You do not have to do it alone. Seek the help of trusted family, friends or a mental health therapist.

PRO TIPS- Don’t try to reason with your abuser. They will not magically change unless they want to change and seek professional help. It is not your responsibility.

ABUSE IS REAL.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
