Verbal abuse and anxiety: the link

DUBAI: You may probably may have been exposed to verbal abuse and not really aware how it has been affecting you.

lifelearnedlessons.com, a portal on life survival ways among others, in a recent article posted on its site identified the following effects of verbal abuse:

Long-term symptoms include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); chronic pain, migraines, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, digestive issues, even suicidal thoughts.

Short-term symptoms include lack of enthusiasm and low self-esteem, overthinking and inability to make decisions.

Here are the forms of verbal abuse and types of abusers:

Unappreciation. Abusers never think that things others do are good enough. So, being abused this way makes people feel empty on the inside.

• Behind closed doors. Since these people think that no one may know about it, they choose to abuse others where no one can see. Of course, this leads to severe trauma.

Mood killer. If a person is feeling good, an abuser may feel like they have no control over the situation. As a result, they make that person feel bad again because, in fact, they feed on people’s sadness.

Name-Calling. Abusers resort to this to manipulate other people.

Abusers are always right. When abusers do something bad, they never apologize for it. They believe they are the best and are never wrong. Keep in mind that a person who does not want to have a discussion may be an abuser.

Attack interests. An abuser attack hobbies, interests, and other things that someone may like. This type of an attack makes people feel worthless.

Blame. Abusers tend to blame other people for everything.

Jokes. Making jokes at someone’s expense may appear entertaining, but sometimes it is not. If it is done without consent and permission, it may lead to causing harm to the person affected.

In order to keep themselves safe, victims usually avoid socializing, said the portal. Being around people makes them feel anxious and uncomfortable, and the reason for this is low self-confidence. If you notice someone with this problem, talk to them, and try to help them.
