Domestic violence is evil, no matter how you look at it. It destroy's the victim for years, depending how long she/he chooses to stay in the relationship. They first gradually lose their self respect, then it's the self worth. Then after awhile, they start to feel fear; then, they feel completely worthless, and they're not imagining any of it because they are being told how useless they are. They know in their head that they are not worth the ground to be walked on.

Verbal abuse is probably the worst. That is a door that has been opened in their mind, filling their imaginations with cruel and mean things that I DO NOT believe Father God would EVER want us to believe about ourselves. God is love, and I do believe it is another demonic tool satan uses to destroy lives. Be blessed.
