- ***TRIGGER WARNING*** Please be aware that some of the content in this video (visual/audio) can be triggering to some viewers. Watch at your own discretion.
The purpose of this video is to raise awareness for emotional abuse: a form of abuse that is seldom talked about because of the lack of physical signs, though it is still abuse. It is a form of brain-washing that slowly erodes the victim's sense of self-worth, security, and trust in themselves and others (liveboldandbloom.com/02/relationships/signs-of-emotional-abuse).
As you saw in the video, every time the victim received an emotionally abusive text message from her abuser, physical signs of abuse became visible. But because no one else could see them, no one believed her. Because of this, the victim felt invalidated, isolated, and hopeless.
There are many people out there- no matter their gender, race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation- that experience this kind of abusive treatment in their relationships. Many of these people don't know how to get out of these relationships, and some don't even know that they're in one. Because of this, it's vital to shed some light and raise awareness for such a heavy topic.
If you or someone you know is in an emotionally abusive relationship, there are resources that are available to you. The National Domestic Abuse Hotline is a 24/7 confidential service for victims and survivors of all types of domestic abuse. Please do not hesitate to contact 1−800−799−7233 if you are in need of help.
