I’m going to try not to get too graphic here, for obvious reasons. I don’t want to kick off the week with a megadose of negativity or trigger a meltdown or shutdown for anyone. After all, that’s not exactly conducive to fostering mental health, nor is it the true spirit of my little ongoing informal Mental Health Monday series. That said, those who are particularly sensitive or feeling fragile today might want to tread somewhat carefully. ❤
I have read countless stories and brief anecdotes of the various forms of abuse that are easily recognized as such. Thus, I don’t really want to go into too much depth about that here. That’s not to shove anything under the rug, remain silent and unaware, or slight/ignore those who have suffered in any way. It’s just that those stories have been written by the people whose stories they were to tell.
