Emotional Maltreatment: a very high number of it"Clearly this is not an issue we should be brushing off." - says the scientist, after giving an alarmingly high percentages of people experiencing emotional abuse. We are extremely numerous, but most of us don't dare speak it out-loud.Emotional Maltreatment: a very high number of it by Ashry42
However, it is time we do! If we want things to change.
I have already shown in my previous journals the devastating effects emotional abuse has on you.
(please check it out if you haven't already: How childhood trauma affects you)
However, since it has no physical wounds, people tend to brush it off.
But she clearly states that emotion abuse is "equally, if not more damaging to a child's mental health [compared to sexual or physical]"
I'm not saying physical or sexual abuse isn't as bad, of course it's extremely horrible! I believe they are all equally damaging. But I'm just showing with this example that people tend to treat physical
CrossroadsCrossroads by Viidith22
Further and further
Down the abyss I tumble
To take hold
Of a happier reality
Evading my fingers
As the abyss darkens
Distant voices inhabit my ears
Never before have I been called such things
Here in my troubled youth
Waiting day by day
For the sun to set
And begin again
Now, without her by my side
It will be like tying my own noose
Day by day, gritting teeth
And breaking hearts along the way
What was a tower of strength,
Is now a shambled ruin,
From which I am now entombed,
I tear out these heartstrings,
Binding me to the rubble,
Who I used to be,
All will be severed,
One by one,
I rip out my feelings,
Those toxic demons,
Tearing me apart,
From the inside,
Bringing down these shambles,
That was once the girl he knew,
And the cancer that was our love.
This time of ours began with a ripple
And as the affects of actions
Branches out through our lives
The water will never be calm agai
Only YouFrom those with cracked heartsOnly You by Viidith22
To hollow souls
Everyone has a will to survive
Survive this Hell that is made by you
You are in control
You decide what slides off of your back
And what pushes you into the dirt
Drives you from normal
It's all YOU
Only your decision
Let NO ONE in
They will break their fingers
Trying to grab your arm
And bring you down
To their level
To show you the twisted end of life
The one no one wants to talk about
That no one wants to look at
Or the depression will chase you down
And destroy your will
Envy will burn that self worth right out of your chest
Greed will take your desire to remain strong during hard times
And this is where you will die
Unless you change it
Only you can
So start running
This is WarThis is WarThis is War by MissTsukii
The gates are open, they're flooding out
I'm a one man army, there's no doubt
These soldiers are of different shapes, sizes and color,
I use all my might, strength and power
to put up a fight.
They're strong, don't get me wrong,
This war will last very long!
I'm pushing, trying to get through,
So irritating, so confusing, so tiring! (phew!)
My brows are crossed and my mind is lost
and my body can't bare it all
my eyes go fuzzy and then i fall...
Now i'm buried underneath this rubble,
I can hear my mother scream,
"If you'd have kept your wardrobe clean,
You wouldn't have gone through all this trouble!"
Dew DropDew DropDew Drop by MissTsukii
Parted without any goodbyes…
falling from the highs
fresh and beautiful!
Just falling freely, with no rule….
All those eyes watching,
see a bright smile, and sing,
"wonderful, delightful, how free!"
The real truth can anyone see?
As it dropped off the leaf,
all eyes gone and solitaire engulfed it's belief
of someone to understand,
that there's a frown behind that smile
None stretched their hand, let it dissolve in the sand
the dew drop's worth just lasted a while…
nobody to understand the story
of the one that lost it's melody,
waiting to be freed from melancholy:
The song of the one, who's lonely…
