15 Disturbing Forms of Verbal Abuse in Relationships - you need to be able to recognize them in you and in others, because words hurt hurt as much as fists, and leave no scars. 1. Withholding - when you say only part of information, and leave the rest hanging in the air, like "keys are there" 2. Countering - when you say "no", "but", "why", "what about you" as beginning of each answer 3. Discounting - when you show that your partner has no right to feel ("I already have a headache, I can't take you and your anxiety right now") 4. Verbal abuse disguised as jokes ("c'mon, silly, I am joking") 5. Blocking and diverting - especially when your partner clearly does not like to talk about the topic, such as money, weight or children 6. Accusing and blaming ("this is you fault that I cannot do X"). 7. Judging and criticizing ("you can never be happy for me"). 8. Trivializing ("I'd love to have your problems"). 9. Undermining ("you are talking nonsense, this is not worth my time"). 10. Threatening ("If you don't stop doing X, I am leaving"). 11. Name calling (anything between obvious "idiot" to not so obvious "you are such a victim"). 12. Forgetting - no matter if it is big or small thing to forget, attempt to remember is missing, and it hurts. 13. Ordering ("now you get up and go buy X"). 14. Denial ("I have done no such thing"). 15. Abusive anger - any form of aggressive speech. No yelling is deserved.

Ahah I am an expert of verbal abuses in relationships. I find it wired. Moreover I never understood so much the meaning of speaking like you speak to explain a story but the end point of a discussion can be either ‘let’s do it’ or a intermediate point between the beliefs of one person and the one of the other person but would you really change your mind after a conversation? What’s the point then in changing your mind, is it really so important on what you think, is there a practical meaning in what you think?

Meta-analysis. What is the trait most important for the happy relationships? Wealth, health, patience? No, no and no. This meta-analysis (in this case, summarized results from 174 various research papers) states that the most important trait is psychological flexibility. Having this important yet underrated trait means that people even in very stressful situation can: - remain open and accept both good and bad from life - stay present - gently accept difficult, complex feelings and let them go - see a wider context of issues in question - live according to the core values - stay resilient while pursuing important life goals The happiness in relationships improves because people are able to live in the moment and in cohesion, are better at parenting and at resolving conflicts and are better able to take care of their children well-being. Psychological flexibility may be improved by mindful attention to the events in your life, cognitive therapy practices (such as Socratic questioning) and meditation.

Words can hurt, maybe even more than fists. Does that happen to you? Do people keep things from you on purpose, do not share their thoughts and feelings, dismiss and counter your memories, blame you for the things you cannot control, calling you names or using hurtful labels? Well, that is verbal psychological abuse, a common component of romantic relationships, friendships and parent-child relationships. None ever deserves to be treated like that, and such behavior should always be objected. First instinct is to always argue with the abuser and to prove him or her wrong. And that would be the right instinct if it was a rational conversation, which is never that with an abuser. An effective strategy is to ignore the content of any hurtful phrase and calmly call out the abuser. Do not get into argument. If this calm statement does not work - leave the situation, limit the encounters with the abuser, or consider ending the relationship (which might be difficult, if you depend on the abuser - but still worth considering).

Documentary I would like to recommend: "Heal" (available on Netflix). I will start with the statement that I am always quite careful with non-scientific methods as well as paranormal things, and value most of them as interesting from cultural perspective and not something to rely on. Nevertheless, most of this documentary is about the biopsychosocial model, about how mind and body are related, how it is important to not give up and use every measure in order to achieve good and balanced health for every one. https://www.netflix.com/lt/title/80220013 #spoonfulofreason #psychology #health #whattowatch
