Well said. When I was in a bad relationship as a young twenty-something girl, my best friend told me "You have to leave him. He will never admit he is abusing you". And you know what-- that was exactly the advice I needed.

You, similar to my friend, are trying to save people from the suffering at the hands of their abusers whether that abuse is physical or verbal. Thank you for writing this article.
