Emotional abuse in a nutshell

I recently came across a quote that captures verbal abuse in a nutshell:-

Avoid people who:-

1.  mess with your head
2.  intentionally and repeatedly do and say things that they know upset you
3.  expect your to prioritise them but refuse to prioritise you
4.  can’t and won’t apologise sincerely
5.  act like the victim when confronted with their abusive behaviour

(David Wolfe)

It’s difficult to avoid such a person when they are a spouse, family member or work colleague, of course. So what can you do? Well, that’s what this site is all about.
