Maybe the start of my issues from a young age started when my dad called me a b#%&! when i was 12. After that i never looked at him the same and lost all respect for him. I watched him yell, get in my mom's face, and call her names has a little girl. As a teenager, we always argued and he said unforgettable things to me like " when those girls bully you at school, don't come to me go to your mother", "i'm gonna walk away from you/distance myself from you" , "your a stupid girl" , and at age 18 or 19 (can't remember exact age) my very own father told my mom " 'vonnah' makes me want to kill myself".
Yes. That's verbal abuse. Maybe emotional too. I always buried this stuff cause i have no one to talk to about it. It only helped crumble my self worth and esteem. And lit more fire to my depression.
