It is a blithering disease which has the potential to claim lives if not handled accordingly. Physical or sexual abuse is something which the society could see and could help fighting it but emotional abuse – the abuse of the worst kind is something that only you can feel and tackle in your own ways.Emotional abuse is basically torturing someone mentally. The consequences of emotional abuse could be lethal. Mind is a palace where things change over time and tormenting someone emotionally is one thing that no mind wants. This is the very reason why one must try to fight off emotional abuse as soon as possible because it is something which can get into your mind and remain there, This could have drastic consequences.Here are some signs through which you can identify a person being emotionally stressed or harassed.
