They Never Hit Me

The Logical Heart Knows Best

I used to be confused about what defines abuse? I thought that someone had to hit you for it to be labeled abuse. There is coercive control that is abuse through emotional/psychological manipulation, threats, monitoring/stalking, isolation, humiliation, deprivation, and intimidation. It encompasses layers of abuse including verbal, emotional, financial, sexual, and can escalate into physical abuse. Coercive control refers to a pattern of controlling behaviors that create unequal power in a relationship. The perpetrator gains power over their partner, making it hard for them to leave. The Netflix series Maid is an accurate portrayal of such abuse.
