Abuse—physical, verbal, sexual or emotional maltreatment—can leave psychological wounds that are harder to heal than bodily injuries.
Survivors of abuse may find it challenging to cope with the intense, often negative feelings that can plague them long after the abuse has ended, and their ability to find peace and happiness in life may be affected. If you have had any experiences of abuse and trauma in your lifetime, you are probably still suffering with distressing memories, anxiety, blocks to intimacy, and trust issues. Many are able to overcome or minimize challenges like these with the help of a professional counselor.
The severity of the psychological results can vary depending on many factors, such as how well the victim was associated with the person who committed the abuse and whether the abuse was recognized or dismissed by the friends and family of the person who was abused.
Children who have been sexually, psychologically, or physically abused often experience emotional difficulties that can affect their academic performance and social skills. As adults, survivors of abuse may experience difficulty maintaining healthy relationships and productivity at work. You may also be suffering from PTSD, depression or anxiety.
