Some words can kill
We are so accustomed to receiving continuous reports of cases of domestic violence, that we forget in some way the psychological harassment to which the victim is subjected.
In maltreatment, it not only attacks the physical integrity of a person, but also leaves serious psychic sequelae.
I do not want to forget thousands of people who also suffer in silence a situation of psychological abuse. It is very important that society understands that before the terror is almost always the word. Insults, shouts and despotic or derogatory phrases referred to the other are a way to cancel the personality of the victim, to attack their human dignity. The people who suffer these harassments and humiliations are forced into a deep bottomless hole. Immersed in solitude, their self-esteem disintegrates and breaks. They suffer in silence, their soul is being damaged little by little. In the eyes of the people around them, their inner wounds, or their inner suffering, are not visible. Over time, they appear in them symptoms that can alert (the family or health care staff) this is because the body is only a reflection of the state of the soul.
From here I encourage all people who suffer this to say enough already, and lose the fear of reporting the facts.
Visible physical wounds can be treated faster and faster, but the harmful power of words and continual humiliations are soul-wounds that are difficult to heal.
The entire population (starting with the children in schools) must be instilled that disrespect should never be allowed and cross the boundary in an interpersonal relationship. Perhaps this would avoid many deaths.
