WTF has Trump’s opinion got to do with anything? He’s an extremist just like the terrorists committing these atrocities.
I imagine there’s a lot of emotionally abusive friendships and I think this should be addressed more often. I had a toxic friendship for over a decade, and like you at the time didn’t know about emotional abuse. Throughout my training to be a therapist and working with victims of sexual abuse - which often incorporates emotional abuse - have I actually been able to put a name to what was really going on with that friendship. It’s taken a lot of work to realise that it was her and not me but the emotional scars will never fully heal.
