Abuse of any kind, be it physical, emotional or sexual, is damaging. It makes no difference if it’s a one-off incident, or a prolonged occurrence.
Reaching out for help isn’t always easy when you’re on the receiving end of abuse. Some victims attempt to “justify” the abuse by blaming themselves, or they tell themselves it will never happen again. While others fear repercussions if they speak out. Even if you just suspect someone you know is being abused, it’s still important to seek help.
