It all started off with three words: "I hate you." These words were said to an old friend of mine by his mother. This friend was several years older than I and that was not the first time he was psychologically abused. He was constantly mistreated by his own flesh and blood which lead to a horrible childhood, miserable adulthood and a terrible relationship with his mother.

However, it is just as serious and in some cases maybe even more harmful than physically hurting someone. Sometimes, it is not what one does, but what one says that changes a life forever. Just by calling someone "stupid" could make said person actually feel stupid. Psychological abuse can lead to the downfall of some intelligent individuals who could have served a great purpose.

Psychological abuse is equal or more severe to children than physical abuse and should be taken more seriously because it has the capability affects one's future, .
Psychological abuse is never taken seriously. One thinks that words could not harm someone; this is not true. In this generation, psychological abuse is the biggest problem to me.
