There are many forms of abuse, some leave scars that you can see and others leave scars you can not see. Life is hard enough as it is we should not be abusing others in any form. If we choose to abuse ourselves that is one thing but when we choose to turn that abuse to others because we are not happy internally that is what causes the pain among us throughout the world. Stop abusing others in any form. If you are not happy with yourself, stay to yourself and learn who you are and what it really means to love yourself first through knowing God and loving your soul before having relations with others that you may intentionally or unintentionally take abuse out on. We need to stop hurting each other and causing so much pain in the world and simply love ourselves so that love can spread among others and simply heal.
