Healing journey - Choices and solutions after abuse.

associated with it, the gripping of anxiety and discomfort on reading

means. On breaking the word abuse into “Ab” and “use”, “Ab” means
“about” while use refers to “being used”. Hence Abuse literally means
being used in a way that is not acceptable”. This may be of various

means behavior that causes damage or harm to one-self.
