Walk away from verbal abuse,
walk away from physical violence,
walk away from negativity.
Walk towards your conviction of
a dream of a better tomorrow.
When you walk away, you break the loop of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, where you feel compelled to stay to suffer abuse. When you feel sympathy for your tormentor, you have fallen into the Stockholm Syndrome. Abuse is not a part of your life. Don’t fool yourself into believing that what does not kill you will only make you stronger. Abuse kills. It breaks your mind, stabs your heart and numbs you to succumb farther. Confront abuse if you can. Walk away if you can’t. Leave. Anyone – anyone who stands with an abuser, is guilty of committing the same sins as the abuser.This betrayer of your trust will regroup and launch a fresh attack on you. Walk away from them. Seek help if you need to. Banish the destroyers away from your life.
Walk away before abuse breaks your legs. Please.
#WritingPrompts theme: walking away.
I like this tweet:
Stop discrediting women for walking away from toxic relationships. Shame on you if you think they’re the ones at fault. There is only so much mental and physical abuse a person can take. It would not be healthy if they stayed and continued to take it. Please understand that

Verbal abuse inflicts mental stress, emotional wounds, physical torture and spiritual conflict.
Abuse is one of the tactics a bully uses to exert influence and control. The bully could not achieve their secret agenda by legitimate means. Abuse is violence meant to break the will power of the victim. It distorts perceptions and corrupts both the bully and victim.
Writing prompt “control“.
