Abuse comes in so many forms of distribution. I’ve always believed it to be false when others say that words don’t hurt. Words can usually hurt the most of all. Words can be used in so many ways but are worst used when the purpose is for them to hurt someone else. Words are a powerful creation that shouldn’t be abused. When someone chooses to verbally abuse another person it can lower one’s self-esteem. It can also cause emotional distress. Words are memorable and can linger in someone’s mind forever. With that being the case, the pain remains inside.

Physical abuse is also a painful form of abuse. So many times physical abuse is practiced even when we don’t notice. Physical abuse is terrible and can destroy someone’s life, mindset, emotions, and perspective of life. Physical abuse includes violence, domestic violence, and can be as simple as a fight at school. I have a strong belief that negative emotions are natural but should be expressed in a manner that doesn’t harm others. I’ve always felt that many abusive people don’t always understand the agony that is caused when they hurt other people. I also believe that they don’t understand the severity of the effects that abuse causes.

Being abused can change so much in a person’s life. We must also consider the reasoning as to why one abuses another. Most abusers harm others physically and verbally because they are hurt inside. This leads us to recognize self-abuse as well. Many people would agree that when someone is abused in any way, they in many cases channel their anger to hurt others to make themselves feel better. In actuality, the person doesn’t feel any better, and as an outcome, they feel even more hurt because they don’t understand their urge to hurt other people. As a result of this the abuser continues to hurt other people.

So many people are being abused everyday. It is time for us to create a change in this pattern and to find alternatives to abuse. You can start this transformation by thinking of ways to help and by putting your ideas to action. Always remember to treat others as you would want to be treated. This is the first step to ending the repetitive chain of abuse.
