A man who lies to himself and believes his own lies becomes unable to recognize truth and ends up losing respect. He indulges in the lowest pleasures. And it all comes from lying - to others and yourself ~ Fyodor Dostoevsk so true its sad
Just because a person doesn't put hands on you, that doesn't mean they aren't abusive. Abuse is control, blatant disrespect, & also hurtful words. Don't settle for emotional abuse thinking it's ok because it's not physical.
